It is in the heart of wondeful hiking country with the beautiful Aberglaslyn Pass and
Nant Gwynant valley nearby as well as the paths up Snowdon.

    That little bit found by Laura may be enough for a plane ticket these days! Heartbreaking story of Gelert. What wonderful tips. Thanks. Have a marvelous birthday.

    Sandy, your photos are just too fantastic for words, bringing back dim (but happy) memories of my brief time in Wales! The Gelert grave story was sad but I picked up after viewing your magnificent Beddgelert hike! Why is everything so picturesque in UK?

    Wonderful page, especially the photos. Thank you for bringing back happy memories of a visit here 20 years ago, including a stay at the Prince Llywelyn! I didn't know that The Inn of the Sixth Happiness was partly filmed near here though.

    We stayed in Sygun Fawr 10 years ago on our first weekend away together and again 6 years ago on honeymoon. Beautiful hotel, wonderful scenery, excellent food and the owners were lovely. Worth the extra as this place makes you feel like a million dollars!

    Lovely UK scenery that D and I must see together one day. Funny shots of Laura digging for gold. And even a CAMRA pub for me. Now, all I need to do is find a 22 pound B & B for two. ;)

    What a wonderful place to hike! It must have been so lovely yesterday with the sun shining and warm weather and gorgeous nature. We had some snow here yesterday, so I am stuck to some virtual dream hiking instead ;-)
