On the Doorstep

The relaxing surroundings of the Brynteg Holiday Park are enough to occupy all members of our family. However, when I sit by the Brynteg Lake I am more than aware that just outside the door is a remote expanse of domed and softly rounded grassy edged peaks with wide flat ridges and high plateaus, known as the Glyderau and it is just beckoning us to explore. With seven of the fifteen highest mountains in Wales it is considered to be the best hill walking area in Snowdonia.

Our relaxing weekend break at Brynteg Holiday Park as a couple had turned into a weekend of “high” adventure. So as I packed my daypack and pulled on my walking socks and boots, we set off, just the two of us, for a day on the hills

The Glyderau – known in English as the Glyders, boasts five summits over 3000 feet, and although it is dominated on either flank by larger and arguably more celebrated mountain regions, the Glyders have no inferiority complex whatsoever.

For outdoor lovers, the Glyders are like a giant play barn; a Whacky Warehouse with ball pits, slides and climbing frames formed 500 million years ago and then re- sculptured by glacial action which has scooped and scarred the mountains, producing a haphazard array of twisted cliffs with connecting ribs and jagged ridges. It is a region where rock formations are given evocative and beguiling names such as Adam and Eve, The Cantilever, Bristley Ridge, Castle of the Winds and Devils Kitchen, all of which add to the general atmosphere and theatre of the place.

Hill walking and hiking is probably the most popular activity within the Glyders. With the exception of Tryfan, all summits are relatively easy to climb and can be scaled individually or as a continuous traverse taking in all or some of the peaks.

On the day we climbed we opted for the most popular approach via Cwn Idwal, starting from Ogwen Cottage. We then followed the main path, skirting Llyn Idwal on our right before passing Idwal Slabs (a popular rock climbing site) and climbing the steep steps into Devil’s Kitchen.

We found the walk across the high plateau from Glyder Fach to Glyder Fawr easy to navigate as it was in good clear weather but you can see that caution should be taken in poor visibility. After a spot of lunch overlooking the breath taking surroundings, we retraced our steps and descended back down Devils Kitchen. As we left the majesty of the mountains behind to return to our vehicle, parked in the ample parking spots along the A5 in the Ogwen Valley, every muscle in my legs hurt.

However, after a short drive and a quick change, I found myself easing all those climbing pains by relaxing in the beautifully tranquil spa pool back at Brynteg. The day’s climb deserved a couple of glasses of wine in the Brynteg bar, before retreating back to our Caravan to snuggle up in front of the TV.

Thanks Mum!

Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to say a big thanks for all our mums do for us. Here at Brynteg we take family very seriously indeed, so we have lots to do on the weekend of the 14th -15th to help you celebrate the best mum in the world!

Come and relax at the SPA at Brynteg, where we have special offers on beauty treatments, gift vouchers and all bookings will receive a Comfort Zone Tester Set.

While mum’s enjoying herself, the kids can join our cake and craft making activities, where they can create a little something special for their special lady. Then everyone can get together and try out our Mother’s Day menu at the Country Club Restaurant.

Perhaps best of all, mums can enjoy a spot of peace and quiet when they send the kids to Movie Mania on Sunday morning!
