Those planning to climb one of Snowdonia's most famous mountains will now have a chance to enjoy a more refreshing experience after a new tea room was given the go-ahead by the national park authority.
It has agreed to allow the facility to be established at the foot of Cadair Idris - which stands at 2,930 ft - by the Countryside Council for Wales (CW), something that could offer those bringing their rucksacks
and walking poles to the area a treat.
Based in Ystradlyn Cottage, the plans also include permanent exhibition of the history and culture of the area.
"The tea room and exhibition will be a welcome facility to the Cadair Idris' thousands of visitors every year," said CCW regional director Tim Jones.
A less successful attempt was made last year to add a new facility to the mountain, when South African Nick Bullen - who as returning to his homeland - took a large oak chair up the mountain as a parting gift to Wales by offering tired walkers a rest.
However, the national park authority took a dim view of the structure and ordered him to take it back down.
