I am thinking about a trip to North Wales in June 2011. Plan right now would be to stay in Conwy and see Conwy, Caernarfon, and Beaumaris Castles, then take train to Betws-y-Coed to stay at Gwydyr Stables http://www.horse-riding-wales.co.uk for 3 days horseback riding. Does anyone know if we could get a taxi to Gwydyr Stables and about how much it would cost? Does anyone know anything about it?
Is there a good way to see Snowdonia Mtn from Betws-y-Coed, or do we want to go somewhere else to see it. Would like to take the train up if weather is good, but we only have the one day when we would be arriving from Conwy, so not sure that is practical. Are there any good walks from there for average fitness self and better fitness 13 y/o daughter? We don't do a lot of hiking.
Is there a scenic railway in the area that would fit with out plans?
Any suggestions would be great. We could hire a car, but if we can do it by public transport, I'd rather do that. Driving on the other side of the road makes me nervous. I did it back in the early 90s, but had a Brit friend with me to assist. This time I'd only have 13 y/o daughter.
