‘Deildy’ is a perfect base from which to explore the local area and the Snowdonia National Park and is ideally located for mountain biking, kayaking on the Ogwen River, or exploring further afield in the North Wales area any time of year. Tregarth is a traditional Welsh village with a traditional pub and village community centre. The old railway tracks for the mines have been closed and converted into cycle paths as part of the 250-mile Lon Las Cymru network from Cardiff to Holyhead, which winds its way through the Nant Francon Pass alongside the Ogwen river to Llyn Owen. Two miles away is Bethesda, a small town on the River Ogwen in North Wales with a number of shops, chapels and pubs. The coastal city of Bangor is six miles away and is best known for its university. Bangor also has a harbour and is close to the Thomas Telford-designed Menai Suspension Bridge which links the mainland to the Isle of Anglesey. South of Tregarth is the Snowdonia National Park with its stunning mountain walks, breathtaking scenery and many towns and villages. Capel Curig is a popular centre for walking, climbing and mountain biking whilst Llanberis is situated at the foot of Mount Snowdon and is home to the Snowdon Mountain Railway, the National Slate Museum and the High Ropes activity centre. The beach at Anglesey is just 10 miles away.
