I am planning a four day trip to North Wales for July. I have a vague itinerary in mind but it could do with a bit of fleshing out, as I think there will be some spare time to fill currently. We're arriving on Friday afternoon and spending the first night in Betws-y-Coed.
Friday - Check out the Fairy Glen and Conwy Falls in the area around Betws.
Saturday - Drive out to Llyn Ogwen and maybe do a bit of walking (we can't do any serious walks sadly as a) my wife has dodgy knees and b) I'll have the toddler in a baby carrier). Then I thought we'd carry on the Llanberis and have a look round the slate museum, which seems to get good reviews on here.
I don't know how long we're likely to spend in the slate museum but I suspect there will be some time to fill in the afternoon and evening here. I had thought about perhaps setting out on a Llyn peninsula circuit and staying somewhere along there on Saturday night. Is that a good idea? If so, does anyone have any recommendations for somewhere to stop for the night?
On Sunday I figured we'd take a trip to Portmeirion, and have a ride on the Ffestiniog Railway. Again, with it getting dark very late now, there may be some time to fill in the evening so I'm open to suggestions! We're staying in Rowen on Sunday night so perhaps something in the Conwy area if there's time?
Monday I figured we'd go for a walk, have a couple of drinks and some lunch at the Groes Inn, then set off for home in the afternoon. We'd have time for one more activity here I suspect but I'd want to be off by about 4pm at the latest.
Any comments or suggestions would be much appreciated.
