I will be travelling with 2 kids (aged 9 and 5) and will be interested in any short stop-over on the route. Aberystwyth will be stay place on Day 2.

    • Catching train after taking ferry from Dublin to Holyhead

      Holyhead Mar 12, 2014 at 8:17 AM

      We will be traveling in June from Dublin to Holyhead and then on via train towards Birmingham. We are wondering if making a reservation for the train is advisable. Problems I see with this are delays in the ferry and the length of disembarkation at Holyhead (we are US citizens). We'd prefer to make train reservations but aren't sure how much time we'd need to catch the train. Any experience info or advice would be great!

    • Snowdon by Train

      Snowdonia Feb 19, 2010 at 12:47 PM

      Hi there,

      We're trying to plan a trip in Summer, with the aim of walking up Snowdon, but can only travel by train and by foot - although possibly by bike if the trains allow it. The plan is to climb Snowdon, then move on to Scafell and then Ben Nevis by the end of the week... in theory at least.

      What I'd like to know is where would be a good place to head for to pitch a tent that's fairly near to a train station, but also has relatively good access to the peak. We don't need an electricity hook-up, but sanitation is a definite plus. A view would be great as well as a few local attractions, but accessibility is the most important factor.

      Any suggestions, anyone?

      Thanks in advance
      Chris

    • Help to choose what to see in Snowdonia in 3 days

      Snowdonia Jul 6, 2009 at 3:34 PM

      Hi there.
      We have a rough plan prepared for our trip to Snowdonia and need and advice to make sure we do not miss any 'must see/ be there'. We are mainly interested in nature - amazing views and great waterfalls and other wonders of nature (something of which there is plenty in Snowdonia), perhaps an old castle. We are certainly not that much interested in towns and villages and museums.

      Short climbs can be managed but my friends by no means are hikers, so climbing any mountains out of question. If you think there is something really worth viewing that is missing from our list than please do say so (as this is the main reason for this post). It would be even better, as our plan is kind of full, if you could not only make a suggestion of what we are missing but also what we should drop from our list to make time for that new thing?. Actually I'm not quite sure if the list below isn't too tightly packed anyway and what with all the travelling around.

      We plan to spend there 3 days and 2 nights. Will leave very early and get to our first attraction around 9 am. I have not yet checked if what we want to see can be fitted in that time but in rough order of our trip this is what we hope to see:

      Pass of the Cross (off A470 at Dinas-Mawddwy),
      Rhiwargor Waterfall (by Lake Vyrnwy or Llyn Efyrnwy)
      Hirnant Pass (or through Cwm Cynllwyd and Bala Lake, depending on which rout we choose)
      Betws-y-Coed (for Fairy Glen and Conwy Falls)
      Swallow Falls
      Lyn Ogwen (with short climb up Cwm Idwal, perhaps Llyn Bochlwyd and Ogwen falls)
      then up A5 through Nant Ffrancon (Falcon Valley, right?)
      if we have time than Caernarfon Castle
      then down through Pass of Llanberis (and mountain railway up Snowdon)
      Dolbadarn Castle
      then down A498 to Pass of Aberglaslyn
      then down A496 to Harlech Castle
      Barmouth (for Panorama Walk or rather few glimpses)
      Dolgellau (for Torrent Walk - ther is also apparently well worht seeing a route from Dolgellau to Arthog on B-roads)
      and that would be about it


      Any comments, suggestion would very welcome. Suggestions of which roads to take to reach our destinations so that to have the best views etc. are more than welcome. I know 3 days is not a lot but that's what we have and we are determined to make best of it. We did this kind of thing in Pembrokeshire last year and it did work - we had a glimpse of Pembrokshire magic that we marvel at to this day.
