The drive up from the main road is a bit of a drag, single lane with a number of gates, but it's worth it. There is an ample car park by the lakes and even if you don't fancy a walk the views are fabulous....More

We stayed at Graig Wen & The Slate Shed accommodation, very close by, in Arthog. We were in a cottage but they do have camping pitches, some with electric hook ups. It's a lovely place, Sarah, the owner is lovely.
