North Wales is simply stunning in autumn. Nestled in the hills and forest above Llanrwst and Betws-Coed are the beautiful lakes of Llyn Geirionydd and Llyn Crafnant.This walk covers varied terrain, forest, rocks, rolling hills and lakes, perfect for adults and children (age six plus). A disused slate mine, wonderful views, tranquil lakes edge, made up our walk. Refreshments were at hand at a delightful little cafe on Llyn Craftnant that sells scrumptious cakes, hot chocolates and local real ale and the owner told us tales of local folk!
Take the B5106 from Conwy or Betws y Coed to Trefriw, then follow signs for Llyn Crafnant.

The eating in Betws-y-Coed can be a bit average (mixed grill or curry with half rice/half chips). Which is why we found the Bistro a real bonus. Nice place with a great menu, just make sure you book ahead. Wales is famous for its sheep - this place should be famous for its lamb. Mouth watering stuff. Enjoy.
