De ligging is heel mooi alhoewel de weg ernaartoe misschien iets beter beschreven kon zijn. Eens je het weet is het geen probleem meer. Het sanitair is hier en daar wel wat aan vernieuwing toe. De eigenaars zijn zijn hl vriendelijk en steeds bereid om hulp te bieden en uitleg te geven over de omgeving. Zeer zeker een aanrader voor mensen die van rust en natuur houden. We hadden een fantastische tijd met de hele familie.

Stop there and visit the Llechwedd Slate Caverns or for the more adventurous try the longest zip wire run in the world - a very popular new feature.
