Let it snow!

Well my Christmas delivery of snow arrived early this year (usually it’s late – very late!) and took our guests a little by surprise.  The temperatures fell to -12 degrees but everybody said that they were warm and cosy in the cabins.

Here are a few of photos… there are more on Facebook and Instagram.

Doesn’t it look spectacular!

See what we offer all year around (except November) on our website

Getting to be a habit?

After our last post about the #EpicBrenin #mtb challenge and the write-up by Matt Jones and mention (and photos) of our accommodation in SingleTrack Magazine you might think that our “fame” was a one-off but NO!

MTBMeetup Logo WHT on BLKHere we are mentioned and linked to AGAIN from a SingleTrack Magazine article this time with regard to #MTBMEETUP which happened at Coed Llandegla (or OPALlandegla) last weekend (18th – 19th April 2015).  We not only donated a weekend in a log cabin to their charity raffle but also provided 10% off accommodation vouchers for the goody bags!

It Was 70 Years Ago Today….

There seem to be 70 year anniversaries of something or another to do with World War II almost every day at the moment, but this is one that is very close to home.

On 6th February 1945, an Avro Lancaster Mk. III (NE132) crashed into Rhinog Fawr (just across the valley from our log cabins) killing all on board.  There is still a debris field there.  Such was the severity of the crash that two members of the crew were never found.  This (apparently) is the only crash site listed as a War Grave in Wales.

A few more details and an image of the memorial plaque can be found HERE, HERE and HERE

Please respect the site if you visit.

Have a look at this article about preparing for a Lancaster mission.

Although most of our visitors see the area as a quiet and peaceful place, we are still in the area for RAF training flights and there are sometimes spectacular sights to be seen – Hercules planes flying in formation seemingly at eye level, Typhoons, Hawks, EuroFighters and other fast jets can be seen in the area.  Plus Chinook, Apache, Merlin, Sea King and more helicopters too.  Keep your eyes open!!
