Wales Coast Path to Mountains Link!
Well, the fabulous Wales Coast Path opened last weekend to much celebration and excitment. And, in honour of this brilliant footpath, a brand new walking route has been created.
The Vale of Ffestiniog Way is a stunning 18 mile circular route that goes from our lovely village of Maentwrog. It leads all the way up one side of the Ffestiniog valley to Llan Ffestiniog, then crosses the highlands of the valley behind the Manod mountain before dropping into Blaenau Ffestiniog and down the other side of the valley to drop back down to Maentwrog.
Maentwrog already sits on the route of the new Wales Coast Path, so the new Vale of Ffestiniog Way is a brilliant route that links the coast and mountains.
There's loads to explore, discover and see - from the legend of St Twrog to the Cynfal gorge and sad stories of loss, to ancient stones to wildlife.
We can't wait to explore it, and of course have a well deserved drink back here in the Oakeley afterwards!!

See you on the route!
