We enjoyed breakfast looking out over the lake.  Due to current restrictions there was no buffet table and all food is brought to the table.  I opted for pancakes with fruit compote.


After breakfast, we tried to find a waterfall walk called the Torrent Walk that we had seen in the hotel’s information folder. The start of the walk was not signposted and we could not find it so we visited Dolgellau thinking we might be able to find a leaflet about the walk.  We gave up on trying to find the information because that trail also fell cold.

By now it was time for a mid morning cuppa. We found a cafe with outdoor seating where I enjoyed a glass of elderflower presse in the morning sunshine whilst watching the world go by. Afterwards, we tracked down a walking book that had the walk in it but decided to leave the walk until the next day.


Instead, we drove to Tywyn and walked along the seafront stopping at Pebbles Cafe for lunch.

Then we returned to the hotel to retrace the walk from our last visit in 1997. I had the leaflet with the information for this one but Mr C said he could remember the walk and we wouldn’t need it. We didn’t quite find the route up the hill because we didn’t go quite far enough along the path. Instead we enjoyed a different walk along the lake electing not to walk all the way round as this would take us onto a busy road. Instead. we retraced our steps and viewed the lake from the opposite direction.

We went back to our room and enjoyed an hour or so sitting on the terrace reading until it was time for dinner.

After dinner, we returned to our room to enjoy a glass of wine on the terrace whilst listening to owls hooting. The weather had other ideas, it started to spit with rain so we beat a hasty retreat indoors.

  1. It sounds like you had a good time. It’s a shame the weather wasn’t a little better.

  2. So pleased you have been able to get away for a break. Your photos are lovely.

  3. The only Welsh seaside town I have been to is Llandudno.
    Tywyn is new to me.
    Welsh place names are so challenging to pronounce and spell out. Ha ha…
    So is this “Tai win” or “Tee win”?
