Mr P,


Crud y Wennol enjoys a quiet, scenic setting within a short distance of a wide range of attractions. Whilst water sports, walking, golf, fishing, shopping and eating establishments are all available at the market town of Bala (5 miles) there is also a shop and garage within 2 miles at the village of Glanrafon. A pub which welcomes pets can be found in Llandderfel, 3 miles from the cottage and there are a number of excellent eating establishments all within ten miles.

From sailing and kayaking on Llyn Tegid (the largest natural lake in Wales) to zorbing, white water rafting and Go Karting on a championship course, there is plenty to get the adrenalin running in this area. There are also plenty of activities that can be enjoyed at a slower pace. From a leisurely ride on the Llangollen Canal to travelling on the narrow gauge steam train along the shores of Llyn Tegid (Bala Lake) or cycling around its perimeter. And there are plenty of interesting shops and inviting cafes to visit as you explore the lovely surrounding Welsh towns.

Some of these include the medieval town of Ruthin, Dolgellau at the foot of Cader Idris and the popular tourist town of Betws y Coed the main tourism hub of Snowdonia National Park.
