Eco Pods Proposed for Disused Quarry

WalesFounder and CEO of UKFast, Lawrence Jones, has unveiled plans to invest £10m into creating an “iconic” boutique hotel and glamping site next to Llyn Cwellyn reservoir in Snowdonia to help boost the already booming tourism industry in North Wales.

A planning application will be submitted to knock down dilapidated parts of Castell Cidwm, a property currently owned by Jones, to create a small hotel, which along with extra accommodation in the outbuildings will be supported by a development of 50 eco pods at the nearby 36 acre Hafod y Wern quarry.

Jones told the Daily Post: “People have so many memories about the Castell Cidwm site, which was a restaurant and B&B, and we want to again create somewhere people can come and stay or enjoy a drink or meal on the edge of the lake.”
