On holiday in North Wales staying in the village of Blanaeu Ffestiniog. Wanted to use local shops so this is where we bought our bread. Beautifully home baked, just as we like it. Also sold the best Eccles cake I have had in a while.

Found this treasure quite by accident, Kurmang is such an interesting man, and his pasties quite delicious. Well worth a visit.
