Family Walks in the Winter Sunshine in North Wales

, , ,
Joe and Kyle on the rocks at Penrhyn - Anglesey

Half term and four days of warm Winter sunshine walking in Snowdonia and along the Anglesey coastal path with the Hanlon family.

The grandparents and their grandchildren enjoyed four days of walking at a relaxing pace, enjoying a variety of walking routes.

“Thanks Joe for allowing us to amble along at our own pace and enjoy the stunning scenery. We had a great time and the weather being good was a bonus as well. Thanks for taking the time to plan a walk with us each day so that there was plenty of interest for the grandchildren. Kyle loved the lifeboat at Moelfre and walking along the beaches. Isaac enjoyed the walks along the cliff tops. We all learnt a few new things as well about slate mining in Snowdonia at the Penrhyn quarry, copper mining at Amlwch and about the building of the Britannia and Menai bridges.”

Here is what the family did:

  • Monday: A relaxing valley walk in Snowdonia, starting in the Ogwen Valley with spectacular clear views of the Carneddau and Glyderau towering above us, along the Nant Ffrancon Valley, bathed in sunshine, to Bethesda.
  • Tuesday: A walk along the Anglesey Coastal Path was today’s family request. Sunshine all the way from Moelfre to Red Wharf Bay. They really enjoyed the variety of this walk, the visit to the RNLI station and centre at Moelfre and the beautiful coastal views along the walk.
  • Wednesday: Colder in the mountains, so we headed off along the Anglesey Coastal Path, following the sunshine of course. Moel-y-Don to Menai Bridge – getting up close and personal to the statue of Nelson out in the Menai Strait, the Britania Bridge (with its famous lions, which you see from the walk) and the Menai Bridge. A lovely walk onto Church Island and along the Belgian Promenade into Menai.
  • Thursday: The sun is still out, but there is a chill in the wind. The family opted for a short walk from Llaneilian to Amlwch. We all enjoyed a cuppa and a few hot chocolates at The Quay Cafe in Porth Amlwch (Amlwch Port). Very family friendly, with cheerful and helpful staff, so we thought they were worth a mention.
