In 2006 we headed off to what was once the Marquis of Anglesey’s Fishing Lodge, beside it’s own private lake (useful if the property was a fishing lodge), within sight of Snowdon. We all fell in love with the location of Castell Cidwm.
Here it is! Castell Cidwm.
And here’s the view across the lake with Snowdon reaching into the sky.
It is sometimes useful to re-arrange the furniture on retreat 😉
And then we settle down to some food.
Here was out huge lounge!
And it’s time to eat … again!

Early morning reflections in the lake.
More proof of blue sky on retreat.
Yep – we were definitely at Castell Cidwm.
More mirror-like reflections on the lake.
See? Definitely a retreat – we have the log fire going.
Mean and moody on the lake.
Low cloud over the mountains.
Abandoned cars amongst the trees.
Oh look – writers eating again.
A group photo! (L-R) Jill, Diane, Jenny, Envys, Sue, and Mike.
Another group photos – well,you can’t have too many.
Admiring the views.
More proof we were at Castell Cidwm
Just checking the cars were still there.
Blue sky, but a breeze – the early morning ripples have ruined the reflections
Still, you can see the summit of Snowdon

Choppy waters but blue skies
