Bespoke Tours of North Wales recently completed their first tour! We collected two lovely visitors from the Grosvenor Hotel in Chester and drove to North Wales. Traffic was really backed-up on the A55 so we took a short cut along some pretty country lanes and admired the great views along the way; we even came across an old telephone box which is now used as a local village library! We then headed towards Llandudno and drove around the Great Orme, catching site of some of the Kashmiri goats who live up there. We visited Conwy Castle, the Smallest House in Great Britain and then took a scenic drive to Betws-y-Coed. On the way we stopped at the Bodnant Food Centre and our visitors bought lots of tasty Welsh treats! We arrived in Betws-y-Coed at around lunchtime and headed straight for the fish and chip shop-delicious as usual, then a quick drive to Swallow Falls which was in full flow. Next, we took a drive past Ty Hyll (the Ugly House) and headed towards Caernarfon. We drove through the Llanberis pass with its towering peaks watching over us as we passed by. Arrived in Caernarfon and spent some time looking at the castle. Whilst we were there we popped into the 'Smallest Bar in Wales' and sampled their Welsh Rarebit which was excellent and I would consider this a must-do if you are in Caernarfon. We said our goodbyes to Caernarfon and headed to Llanfairpwll. Our visitors took some photographs by the sign, bought some last minute souvenirs and then it was time to head back.
Returned to Chester in the evening, tired and ready for a sit down after a memorable day!
