Snowdonia Holiday 2011

We travelled down to Wales for a short 4 day break. We stayed in my workmates cottage called Ty Mawr near the village of Nantmor, this little place was in the middle of nowhere. The cottage was right up a large Hill (mountain) with massive summits all around. Its about 5 miles from Snowdon, and 2 miles from Moel Hebog. We went to do some climbing but the weather was very grim so we decided just to have some low level walks and do some travelling in the car. We went into the Lleyn Peninsula and done a complete circuit around the spit of land, they all talk welsh in this part with very little English being spoken. One of the best finds was a little village called Morfa Nefyn and the small bit of land to the north called Porthdinllean where you will find a golf course and a little beach with a pub on it called the Ty Coch inn. Also a great find was the village by the sea called Criccieth which has a large castle on the hill overlooking it

Also Porthmadog is worth a look in if you down this way, its a large town with an old steam railway that provides a massive tourist attraction. The Ffestiniog Railway is a narrow gauge track that runs regular steam trains to the surrounding villages. They run straight through the town and there are hordes of people taking photos.

Photos from the trip

With some great storms going on around us i grabbed the camera and took some photos of the old cottage and some castles that were in the area we were travelling. Please have a look below. All the photos are geotagged so you can find your way there.
