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.





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

Here are some more pics of Hope Mountain



To get up there – park in Caergrwle car park.  Walk out of the exit (on the right as you enter), then turn left.
You can follow your nose and head straight up the street right in front of you, and there is a small stile you jump over – this way is VERY overgrown, but bloody awesome.

Alternatively you can come out of the car park, turn left and then turn left again and follow that road all the way up into what appears to be a cul-de-sac of houses. However, on the top right, there is a path you can follow, and turn left off of about 100m of the way up.

Finally, if coming from Wrexham towards mold on the Mold Road.  Turn left by the traffic lights in abermorddu.
