Time is flying by… here we are at the end of January and looking towards February half term, Valentine’s Day and… my birthday ūüôā

February in Snowdonia has lots to offer. ¬†As in this photo from 2013, it can be crisp and clear or we could have more snow again (there’s currently just a bit more snow than this on Snowdon but if this warmth continues it could thaw).

Think about walking in the forests if the weather is a bit blowy but it’s also a great time to wrap up and walk on the beach. ¬†Afterwards there’s always time for tea and cake. ¬†See our Facebook page The Great Snowdonia Cake Trail for places to tempt¬†you with their goodies!

Valentines Day is always busy as it tends to fall during February Half Term week.  Even at the busiest time we are always popular for romantic breaks with more than 150 proposals (that we know of) having taken place during stays with us.

The fishing season on Trawsfynydd Lake begins on 1st February.  Trawsfynydd is the 3rd largest lake in Wales at just under 3 miles long.  It has a cycle path around it and a cafe with lake views (and free WiFi) just off the A470.  Fishing permits can be obtained from the lakeside and boats can be hired too.  Kayaking is permitted on the lake and the cafe also have bikes for hire.  The lake is often the venue for international fishing competitions.

At the end of the month Coed y Brenin (2 miles from our log cabins) hosts¬†The Fox Anti Freeze Enduro mountain biking event. ¬†A a multi lap, staggered start, chip-timed challenge! ¬†There is also a Junior Anti Freeze event for youngsters the day before – start ’em young. ¬†The weekend before there is a yoga for mountain bikers session too to stretch the muscles.

Updates on what’s happening can be found on our What’s On page of the Cadair View Lodge website.

Do You Usually Go Away Over Easter?

No – this isn’t a selling pitch this is just for your information.

Have you checked your children’s “Easter” holiday dates for 2016? ¬†Easter is very early next year and some local authorities are not ending their Spring Term until a week AFTER Easter! ¬†That is to say that some schools will close Good Friday and Easter Monday but then continue until the following Friday before breaking up. ¬†So if this applies to your LEA and you usually take advantage of the 2 Bank Holidays and schools being closed to take a holiday then you’re scuppered!

Good Friday 2016 is Friday 25th March

Easter Monday 2016 is Monday 28th March

See your children’s school holidays by Local Education Authority HERE¬† Fingers crossed that the same holiday range applies to all of them.

If you would like to come to stay at our log cabins in Snowdonia, North Wales for Easter 2016 then please get in touch as soon as possible.   I can see a lot of stay-cations happening over Easter 2016 so book early.  See our website HERE  Minimum stay 3 nights
