Fairy Glen

  • fairy glen trial 2

A picturesque, narrow gorge with access for ᆪ1. Some large rocks to sit on and a deep section down the middle to swim through. The grassy junction pool is also good for a longer, sunnier swim.

Wow, after one nights rain fall we really hit this one at a bad time. Absolutely beautiful setting and although the torrent gushing through was unsafe to swim we somehow still managed to be here for over an hour. really is worth seeing and shall be popping back someday for a swim. not recommended in high water for a swim.

We visited a couple of months back when we actually had lovely weather. The site is well described in the book, and easily accessible – and in the sunshine was idyllic. The main pool sits at the confluence of two streams before braiding either side of an island downstream. Plenty of shallower areas for paddling and the water was nice and warm in the sun. Make sure you pay at the car park honesty box – there’s a camera pointing at it! Alternatively, access from the main road out of Betws-y-coed and scramble down the bank to a larger grassy area – probably better for picnics.
A really enjoyable afternoon.
