If you’re in need of fresh air or simply wish for a bit of one on one time with your dog. Ogwen Valley will not disappoint,
Ogwen valley may well be one of the most scenic hostels you will ever visit, the rolling hills that make way for mountains have to be seen to be believed. Cycle, walk or if you’re feeling adventurous zip wire through the incredible Snowdonia national park.
Snowdon itself is only half an hour by car if you’re up for a challenge, as well as other less demanding mountains nearby, and for when you’re done trekking don’t forget to visit some of the many quaint welsh pubs dotted around the area.
With so little light pollution starry nights here are truly breath taking. This great value self catering hostel is dog friendly, allowing you to walk in the clouds accompanied by a faithful hound.
Always good to have a camp fire even though the weather was good in the Ogwen valley
