/ Snowdon for my honeymoon Advice please!?
My wife to be agreed that we could go to Snowdon for our honeymoon, and ive found a great little place to stay which she loves the look of in Rhyd Ddu, (the cwellyn arms) now i would like to get some good photo opatunities along the route, as well as reaching the highest summit in wales (of course) now i would like to see adam and eve, and also the cannon, but im unsure how to plan the routes, and if it would be feasable in one or two days with where we may stay, i should i look for somewhere else to stay???
what do you guys think????
thanks for reading this far anyway, if you manage a reply for me it would be much apriciated!
Any further questions email me. happy to help.
I spent my honey moon on the campsite at the foot of Tyfan in the Ogwen valley in a tiny 2 man tent. It rained every day. Though admitadly the rain did stop long enough on most days for the midges come out.
I remember clearing the sheep out of the shower block so I could cook a honey moon feast on a pocket rocket in a single pan. The pan fell over and the contents fell on the floor and when I picked it up I noticed a bit of sheep pooh in it. I haven't yet been brave enough after all these years to tell my wife who still mentions what a lovely meal I made that night.
Good luck, but remember the honeymoon may set the tone for the rest of your marriage.
Snowdon one day, Tryfan and Adam and Eve day 2..
Unless you have experience scrambling the cannon may be an issue..
For Tryfan head up to llyn bochlwyd, bwlch tryfan south ridge, summit of tryfan, return south ridge and descend via cwm tryfan.. nice loop..
Rhyd Ddu > Ogwen isn't a huge drive.. 45 minutes, depends on the traffic..
I would recommend Betws y coed and for agood photo - the cantilever on glyder fach.
You spoil that woman James!
I'm just having trouble pin pointing the cannon, and adam and eve on a map, which I can then cross reference with routes to make a loop! I can't even fond grid ref's
That is where some hillwalking friends of mine spent their very happy honeymoon! They've been back since so, though I haven't experienced it, it can't be that bad!
On Glyder Fach you have other rocks to picture so that could be worth a trip, a good hours walk from the summit of Tryfan..
Cantalever, Castel y Gwynt etc..

Not a honeymoon, but me and the mrs spent our first ever holiday there together. Also the only time I ever missed a vote in a general election (Mrs T's third term)
Apart from the screaming jet fighters at 6AM it was ace, but we did walk up from Bethesda in a downpour.

However hard I try, I can't even imagine honeymooning in a tent in the Ogwen valley ! That said, I've planted my tent in some lovely spots and sex close to nature has much to recommend it !
The Cwellyn Arms is an excellent choice. I've only used The Bunkhouse ( not really suitable for honeymooning couples !). Many reports of it being pricey, but when you're already used to London prices......... !

Err, might be worth alerting mountain rescue before you head out.
