Our 6th year at Snowdon Wharf, the 1st with a dog, so thank you for allowing a pet into your home. The weather was amazing (the best ever) so we enjoyed a lovely walk from Tan y Bwlch to Penrhyn beach (traeth bach) to Morfa Bychan, an easy walk, Criccieth and Morfa Nefyn (the beach at the RNLI station was beautiful). Two trips to Coed y Brenin and messing about around Ballast Island completed our week. We will be back!"
