Mike Whelan and family from Ipswich booked thisholiday for the Easter Break in 2006. This is a brief account of their time in Snowdonia.
“I was 10 years old when my dad fi rst took me hiking in Snowdonia. From then on I was hooked. So it was fitting that I returned recently with my kids. All ready for a family challenge.
The whole family tackled a classic ridge walk incorporating Moel Eilio which gave us breathtaking views of glacier shaped valleys east and west, a wild rocky sky-line and a gorgeous mountain lake 1000ft below us. ‘Awesome’ according to the kids. This was rugged terrain. A real challenge rewarded with enormous chip butties and huge mugs of hot chocolate at Pete’s Eats.
Llanberis is bursting with attractions. The Slate Museum, Dolbadarn Castle, Electric Mountain, boating on Llyn Padarn and train rides to the summit of Snowdon are just a few of them. We chose a hotel with plenty of space, family rooms, and 30 acres of gardens and woodland. The kids had their best holiday ever. Perhaps one day they’ll be back with their kids, too.”
