Apart from being surrounded by stunning scenery (lakes, mountain, forests) there are also a wealth of local activities (and activity providers) available fishing, zip lining, white water paddle sports, walking, mountain biking, trail running and lots more. We are also in an area rich in heritage and history - with Blaenau Ffestiniog being put forward in 2019 as a World Heritage Site, castles galore plus, again lots more.

It's best to talk to us about your requirements and for suggestions.
