Climbing Snowdon is on the to do list of a lot of our guests here at Dioni.

Others will drive up to the busy car park at Pen Y Pass in the hope of grabbing one of the limited parking spot before ascending the highest peak in England and Wales. But imagine if you could get up in the morning, grab your rucksack, and head on up the mountain straight from the doorstep of your holiday cottage.
