Betws-y-Coed is one of the most picturesque and friendly villages in North Wales, it has the most amazing gift shops and the kids would argue the best ice cream in the world! Bubs and Cordy really enjoyed this little lever train that ran alongside the village's train station and the old train cafe. I think by far though the best bit was sat having our lunch (a huge pain au chocolat fresh from the bakery!)whilst watching the waterfall. It starts much further up and is named Swallow Falls, seeing how the waterfall has gorged its way out through the rocks is mesmerising. We saw a heron and a cormorant too both sat on huge rocks looking for fish. Getting across the rocks to sit under the bridge was quite tricky but it was me who fell not the kids! This tree was in the churchyard and was gigantic! I took a picture whilst everyone tried to see if they could fit around it holding hands, it was a lovely moment! If you look on the tourist info for the village this is what it says "If you are tired by life, come to the Betws-y-Coed, you will be breathless just standing still" and it is totally true.
