During our short break in North Wales we stopped at Dolfannog Fawr, in the Tal-y-llyn valley. An excellent B & B, in a beautiful setting, at the top of Llyn Mwyngil (Lake Tal-y-llyn), nestling under Cadair Idris. Lovely rooms, beautifully fitted out with no cutting of corners (definitely not a Travelodge!), a lovely garden, and plenty of books to browse in a really nice guests’ lounge. Good breakfasts with quality ingredients and the owners, Alex and Lorraine, were very welcoming and friendly, willing to talk and offer advice, but not overbearing.
This was the room we stayed in

The B&B offered the option of evening meals (that were very good) Wednesday to Saturday, but as we arrived on a Tuesday we needed to go out to eat. As it was a pleasant evening, we decided to walk down to he pub at the other end of the lake for a light meal. You can walk all round the lake – on the road which runs along the south shore and along a traffic free track on the north side.
Here’s a few photos taken during our “circumnavigation” of the lake
