Magnificent stay in North Wales in the village of Tregarth outside Bangor. Had originally intended to stay 3 nights, but business took me to another town and I was only able to spend 2 nights and one full day. There was no problem changing my reservation.
Not only did my hosts pick me up at the train station (the only B&B that did this during my time in the UK), but when they heard I wanted
to see an old mining site on the island of Anglesey, they picked me up after my business meeting in Bangor, drove me out to Anglesey, hiked all around the mine site, toured me over to a birding site by a lighthouse, showed me ancient stone circles, and topped it off with a stop at a British pub for a late dinner.
While I'm sure they don't have the time to tour every guest this way,
they are lovely people with a lovely B&B. There is a garden with a little pond, a TV room, and plenty of information on hiking in Snowdonia. They are very accomodating in breakfast preferences, and even make sandwiches for guests that will be out hiking all day.
The village of Tregarth itself is quite pretty as well. There are many stone cottages with shingles actually made out of slate, and one of the biggest slate quarries in the world just 2 miles away. Very picturesque. Buses run regularly into the main town of Bangor, and the B&B is just a few blocks from the bus stop.
I highly recommend Tregarth Homestay for anyone wanting a home base for hiking around North Wales!
