Our hotel looked out onto the mountains, and local walks gave so many opportunities to enjoy Nature in all her splendour.
St Mary's, the main parish church, has the most beautiful Burne-Jones stained glass windows, like All Saints in Putney. The Eucharist was celebrated half in English, half in Welsh.
St Michaels's is a tiny church, simple and still standing at 700 years old. Just by the church is this fantastic suspension footbridge which wobbles wonderfully when you walk along!
This Telford bridge commemorates the Battle of Waterloo, and welcomes you to Betws-y-coed.
Faces to be found everywhere!
We met a ceramicist, Martin O'Neill, who specialises in Japanese Raku jewellery, and also pit-firing.
Find him at http://www.martin-oneill.co.uk. His studio is just by the station, and do visit if you are ever near Betws-y-coed. I treated myself to this beautiful pendant.
We had a fabulous time, and would love to go back again in warmer weather and have a go at Snowdon; you can get up via a furnicular railway and walk down.......!
