Easter in Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog

Fish and chips, kite flying and cricket on Aberdovey beach, mountain biking and some nice walks around Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog. The perfect recipe for a relaxing Easter break.


We spent the Easter break at our place in Llanarmon with friends. Good Friday looked to be the best for weather over the weekend so we headed down to one of our favourite beaches in Wales at Aberdovey (Aberdyfi in Welsh). If you have not visited it is highly recommended for a trip. It sits in Cardigan Bay and has miles of sandy beaches, easy parking, a RNLI station to visit and a few cafes. What else do you need!

The morning was spent kite flying, playing beach cricket, football and frisbee. After all that exertion some well earned fish and chips were eaten on the beach. Perfect. On the way home we stopped off in Machynlleth which is always worth a visit and poked around the antique shops and galleries.

Llwydiarth – Ann Griffiths Walk

The walk follows the Vyrnwy River which flows out from Lake Vyrnwy and is a really straightforward easy to follow route. The scenery is fantastic and includes river valley, gorge, meadow, woodland and forest.

Llyn Brenig – mountain biking

Sunday took us to Llyn Brenig on our bikes which is about 40 minutes west of Llangollen. It never seems to get too busy – I think most people pass it by on the way to Betws y Coed. The cycling is really straightforward and is mostly on really quiet tarmac or gravel roads. But we were not feeling too energetic so it ticked the bill. It is ideal for cycling with younger kids as you can just turn round when they have had enough.

Walk around Llanarmon

We woke on Monday to snow, how quickly the weather can change round here! We headed from the cottage along the road to Swch-Cae-Rhiw and had a pleasant walk for a couple of hours. The snow made it easy for the kids to follow various animal tracks through the woods.
