Driving and Riding - Great Welsh Roads

'Great driving roads - and that view'

If you love motoring on two wheels or four then you’ll love the roads around Lake Vyrnwy.

The road around the lake is a place to pootle and take in the serenity of the lake – and then head for the mountains of the Berwyn Range or Snowdonia for some classic motoring.

The sweeping, vertiginous panorama of Bwlch y Groes (Pass of the Cross) form the highest mountain pass accessible by road in the country.

Or drive to “Little Switzerland” – the B4500 running between Chirk and the village of Glyn Ceiriog in the foothills of the Berwyn Mountains is one of North Wales’ great drives just remote enough for you to feel that you are the only car on the road.

Bring a large scale map to Lake Vyrnwy Hotel and Spa (make it a Michelin and you’ll be astounded at the number of green routes) and start planning a day’s motoring you’ll never forget.
