The following are some of the comments we received following the 2018 Walking Festival:

Belatedly, a huge thank you to all the volunteers who worked so hard to put on such a fantastic 3 days. A brilliant programme of walks/activities, dedicated leaders and such a warm welcome from the team in the village hall. It goes without saying that the Cake Fest was truly magnificent.  – Sue and Annie, June 2018

A magnificent festival; totally exceeded my expectations. A wonderful variety of walks on offer. Professionally run. Thank you to all concerned. A total triumph. Our first year, but it won’t be our last. – Rich, May 2018

A wonderful experience discovering this beautiful area of Wales. Usually we go to Tenerife for the Walking Festival at this time of year, but we loved it so much here we’ll be back. – Angie & Mike, May 2018

We have had yet another fabulous Trefriw experience. Excellent leaders and well-planned, interesting walks. We have made some great contacts and new friends. Thank you all. – Chris & Shaun L., May 2018

We’ve had 3 great days of walking and in good company. As ever, the walk guides were knowedgeable and welcoming. This is a fantastic area for walking, but is made all the better when the history and context are explained. – Pete & Margaret  S., May 2018

Some comments from 2017:

“I want to thank everyone concerned, in particular the walk leaders on our two days.  Thanks also to all the team back in the Hall who gave us such a warm welcome for the start of the weekend and the magnificent Cake Fest at the end of it!  I enjoyed everything – the opportunity to walk such beautiful terrain and to learn about the history and heritage of the area, to meet people with similar interests and a love of the countryside, and above all to have been part of this Walking Festival which has the right balance of being small scale but challenging.”   –    Jenny C., May 2017

“A huge thank you to everyone involved in the planning and execution of the Trefriw walking festival. As a participant for the first time it was very enjoyable.  A range of walks for all abilities starting from the village hall where welcome cups of tea and coffee were available. Interesting and enthusiastic leaders and walkers, and the grand finale of cakes. All of this in the most beautiful countryside.  Best wishes and thank you.”   –   Sally H., May 2017

“It was a brilliant three days.  Thank you to everyone who was involved in making the event such a success. A great choice of walks and other activities, excellent leaders, friendly committee, and I loved the way the hall was decked out. Happy walking and see you in 2018.”  –  Sue L., May 2017

“That’s a nicely designed website you’ve got! Some first-rate photos and it’s very easy to navigate – the photos give a good first impression of what’s in store and the descriptions are just the right length to be usefully informative, so you can dip in and out. Better still my iPhone can handle it without it freezing.” – Matt L., February 2018

“I’m very impressed with your website, by the way – that must have taken a lot of work. And – unlike so many others – mobile-friendly.” – Glyn D., February 2018

“This is one of the most logical websites that I’ve been on! Questions that were popping into my head were being answered by the next click of my mouse – If only every website was this simple and easy to navigate around!” – Tom H., May 2018
