At the most beautiful October day 2017 I went up the Snowdon with my family. Close to the access to the footpath we passed this beautiful tearoom and I noticed it for a later visit. As was expected I had to return after half way...More

Enjoyed refreshments here on our way back along the Llanberis path. It advertises itself as serving the best hot chocolate and this claim is accurate - though after my walking efforts, anything would have tasted like nectar! Lovely roaring fire, interesting host keen to share...More

This tea house provides eggs etc for guests to cook themselves but they don’t provide hot meals ready prepared or to order. Not far by car to Zip World with sat nav but it is the next valley I think.
