“A great relaxing week in North Wales”
Weather was a bit iffy but there was plenty to keep us occupied. Prestatyn and Rhyl should be avoided in my opinion, Llandudno was a parking nightmare so we went up the Orme instead with it's stunning views. We tried the Electric Mountain at Llanberis but never considered we'd need to prebook; same with the Snowdon mountain railway. So saved quite a few £ but just having a wander around instead.

Weather was a bit iffy but there was plenty to keep us occupied. Prestatyn and Rhyl should be avoided in my opinion, Llandudno was a parking nightmare so we went up the Orme instead with it's stunning views.

Stunning driver across the park to Betws-y-Coed where we were met with another parking nightmare so back to Penrho for a chilled evening instead. The hot tub needs a few hours of log burning to reach temperature so some forward planning is required and it can get very hot so keep the hose on standby. The kitchen has an aga so needs some careful cooking to avoid cremating your food. The sun lounge was the focal point for our party. There is a local shop, walking distance, for morning papers and forgotten things and quite a few supermarkets a short drive away.
