Horse Shoe Falls – North Wales

Took a half day on Friday, and drove down to the waterfall by the Horse Shoe Pass (which is kind-of by Llangollen).

Great idea if you live within a few hours driving distance, hardly anyone there on a Friday afternoon.









The waterfall itself, isn’t really a waterfall (see pic above).

However, it is still really beautiful, especially the view from the hill above the lake/waterfall.

Lots of ‘layers’ of trees, hills, etc.





Horse Shoe Pass, Denbighshire – Near Llangollen

Near the Ponderosa cafe

Horseshoe Pass, Llangollen, LL20 8DR

You can park at the cafe, or across the road – there is usually plenty of free parking.






The Horseshoe pass is a great place for walkers, hikers, bikers and families.  Something for virtually everyone!

There are also a number of campsites nearby, and you can stay over at the cafe.

Air BnB – North Wales

So, I used Air BnB for the first time – and stayed in a house near Amlwch, Anglesey.

It costs £60 a night, and was well worth it.

It was perfect for us with a baby –  as we had a meal cooked for us, and stayed and didn’t have to worry about the baby screaming and upsetting people.

If you don’t fancy sharing the actual house, the couple that we stayed with, also have a caravan outside.



There’s a lovely beach about 10 minutes drive away from the house:









Pili Palas was really quiet, and definitely worth a visit with the little-one
