Toddler friendly holidays in Snowdonia
« on: August 13, 2019, 11:24:20 am »
Can anyone recommend toddler/buggy friendly places to visit in Snowdonia?
We are planning to go camping around Dolgellau, Tywyn, Cadair Idris etc.
Southern Gwynnedd/Snowdonia.

Any good campsites around that area?

Loads!!! Though it's a long time since I've been and I'm not familiar with "buggy friendly" so couldn't advise.  You MUST visit Gelert's Grave and buy the book about Bedd Gelert for the little one.  There's the mountain railway up Snowdon; don't expect to see anything other than mist when you get to the top though!  Llechwedd slate mine and the old village was well worth a visit; you're not that far from Portmeirion, there's also both a nuclear power plant and water mountain if you're interested in power generation.... and the zipwire but that's maybe no use with a toddler/baby on board!

I've climbed Snowdon many times - but before I got married.
Now we have a 4yo and a 1 1/2 year old. They are way too small to do any proper hiking but train up Snowdon is a good idea.
Next week the weather supposed to be much better (I really really hope!!!!)

The old steam train at Blaenau Ffestiniog was a firm favourite when I visited as a child (and later as an adult)!
Dinorweg is the 'electric mountain' (hydro powered) and Trawsfynedd the nuclear one.  The kids are possibly a bit young to appreciate them but very interesting for adults.  There are also the various castles if the weather is nice.  If you were heading further South (even for a day trip) then Castell Coch just outside Cardiff and St Faggons (National Museum of Wales) would be brilliant places to go even for the kids!
