    Unhappy Digging up and old thread

    Just booked Easter holiday and searching for information regarding the possibilities of local paddling in Wales. Llyn Cwellyn is the closest lake.
    Any idea what water can be paddled round and about.
    All info greatly appreciated.

    My boats been upside down and dry for far too long!
    ...and a river runs through it!

    The lake-side campsite and bunkhouse on Llyn Cwellyn are both owned (or run) by a local pub in Rhyd Ddu - The Snowdon Inn, which is about half-a-mile away (0.6miles, to be precise). The link to the campsite is here. You will note there are rules on wood collecting!


    The campsite is quite extensive, but was very busy when I went there. I managed to get onto the lake for an hour so and got a couple of photo's to share:



    A view down to the endof the Lake (looking NE).

    The campsite is close to the Snowdon Ranger YHA, is in easy reach of both the Snowdon Ranger and the Rhyd Ddu paths up the mountain (other mountains or hills are also available). There are hazards -

    and midges!!


    Llyn Cwellyn is one of the deepest lakes in Snowdonia - the OS has it going down at least 30m, and can, I am told, be very cold.

    Cheers,
    Biff
