Last day walked route 21 in pathfinder guide 10 and ended up having fish and chips in Borth. Unfortunately have to go home tomorrow but will be back."
Mr & Mrs S: "What a lovely home to stay in, the time has flown by. Steam train to Bleanau Ffestiniog and walk back; nice to do.Steam train to Porthmadog very pretty, can stop at Minffordd and walk 1 1/2 miles to Portmeirion. Conway castle and town worth a visit also Harlech and surrounding area. Local walk up the hill worth a look, waterfalls in full flow after rain."
