The bats are nocturnal and come out at night to hunt for insects depending on the time of year.

We supply an initial supply of logs for you which will be sufficient for the first night or two. If you need any more logs, Emma and Menno in the tea rooms, 2 doors up will be willing to sell further supplies of seasoned Logs and kindling to you, these will be better quality than those sold in garages!

The Village

Rhyd Ddu is an ideal base for your holiday in the Snowdonia National Park. The sherpa bus has a regular service in the village so there is no need for you to use your car. The Welsh Highland Railway has a station in the village. So taking the train is another option for you to take. From Rhyd Ddu you can walk up Snowdon and The Nantlle Ridge.

When you stay at Cwm Yr Afon a visit to the Ty Mawr Tearooms two doors down to the right is a must!
Emma and Menno make a superb all day breakfast or (my favourite)  Uitsmijter (Dutch Fried Egg & Ham Breakfast) with a cup of Dutch coffee!
Turn left and 25 metres is the Cwellyn Arms which has good food and a wide range of Beers.
There is a fish and chip shop in Waunfawr which is 4 miles away.
