Best Route?

Recommended Posts

Going to Wales in September. Travelling from NE32 NB to LL42 1RR.


Recommendations please for the most scenic route after M62.


We are in a Motorhome and prefer scenic B routes where possible.


Initially staying near Barmouth, we plan to visit Harlech, Aberdyfi, Bedgellert, Betws y Coed and LLandudno. Sadly we only have a week.


Shout up if there are any must go places you recommend.


We enjoy wee quiet towns and nice coastal or forest walking.


Cheers M

Conwy is worth a visit which is near Llandudno. A nice day out is the Isle of Anglesey, especially Beaumaris then on to Penmon point which has a light house and overlooks Puffin Island, fantastic views from the point car park towards the Great Orme at Llandudno and the coast to Bangor; whilst in Llandudno you must go up the Great Orme via the tramway.

Ps, We live opposite Conwy :D

Leave the M62 at J10, go south on M6, onto M56 westbound.


Go to the end of M56, then Mold, Corwen, Bala, Dolgellau (by-pass), Barmouth and Llanaber.


. .... I'd set off early !!



I agree with Ian about Anglesey . .. but it's getting on for a couple of hours to Puffin Island from Barmouth! Lots of places to go without travelling too far.


If you're a keen walker it's a great area . .. Cader Idris, Rhinog mountains, Cym Bychan and Roman Steps, Mawddach Trail, Coed-Y-Brenin, Panorama Walk, Precipice Walk, New Precipice Walk and Torrent Walk . .. plus of course Snowdon and its surrounding mountains and lakes.


Loads of lovely deserted beaches.


More railways than you can shake a stick at - Fairbourne, Talyllyn, Festiniog, Welsh Highland, Llanberis, BalaLake and Snowdon Mountain.


Porthmadog, Bala, Barmouth, Criccieth, Portmeirion Italian Village, Blaenau Ffestiniog Slate Caverns, Electric Mountain, Harlech Castle, etc.

Whilst in Barmouth, go visit http://www. tyrgraigcastle. co. uk/ for a meal or afternoon tea.


Built in 1882 by a gun maker for his wife, who liked the view. From above, the view looks like the end of a double barrelled shotgun.
