Snowdonia is one of Britain’s most rugged and beautiful mountain areas. Fourteen peaks exceed 3,000 feet, whilst Snowdon itself (Yr Wyddfa) can lay claim to being the highest and grandest mountain in Britain south of the Scottish Highlands. Snowdonia National Park includes within its boundaries all the major peaks in Wales north of the Dyfi estuary, along with many of its most beautiful valleys.

Walking in Northern Snowdonia is dedicated to the northern half of the National Park, bounded by the Conwy Valley to the east, Glyn Lledr and the Vale of Ffestiniog to the south and Cwm Pennant to the west. Twenty circular walks are described, ranging in length from 4½ to 9 miles, which explore the woods, valleys and lower hillsides of this unique and beautiful area.

At our discretion, incomplete orders may be sent out as partial shipments if we anticipate that an item may take some time coming in to stock.

EU customers - IMPORTANT: You will be required to pay import VAT (tax) at your local rate to your postal delivery service before any goods are delivered. Since 2021 you have not been charged British VAT (at 20%) on any purchases or P&P charges, however, with effect from 1 January 2022, the rules regarding importing from outside the EU changed and import VAT is now payable on any value of goods imported into the EU. This is separate to any tariff which may or may not be chargeable on the goods due to their country of origin. Please also note that we are legally required to declare the correct value of your purchase which is used to calculate the tax and any tariff duty. Failure to pay the import charges will result in the goods being returned to the UK.  Our terms and conditions have been updated to reflect this situation.

Cancellations - non personalised/bespoke items

The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations) provide consumers with the right to a 'cooling-off' period to allow you to change your mind. Under these regulations, you have the right to cancel your order, without explanation, within 14 days of delivery (starting the day after you receive the goods) and to return the goods for a refund within a further 14 days (28 days in total). The Distance Selling Regulations do not apply to businesses nor to individuals who are trading or acting as a trader (buying goods to re-sell for profit) because no-one is the 'Consumer'. This means there is no 'cooling-off' period and the order cannot be cancelled once processed.

Where an order is placed for an item which is to be personalised or is bespoke, cancellation is not possible once production has started and these are expressly excluded from The Consumer Contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charges) Regulations 2013 (formerly the Distance Selling Regulations).
