Our Area

Located in the heart of Snowdonia, the centre of the area we cover is the the beautiful Conwy Valley.
However the area also stretches from Capel Curig to Cerrig y Drudion, including Dolwyddelan and the Lledr Valley.




Conwy


With it's impressive castle built by Edward I, the walled town of Conwy overlooks the estuary of the River Conwy. The castle itself provides spectacular view of both the estuary and the mountains.






Eglwysbach


Nearby the rural village of Eglwysbach is the internationally renowned Bodnant Garden. Covering almost 100 acres, its location above the river Conwy providing spectacular views of the Snowdon range. In Spring the magnificent displays include rhododendrons, camellias and magnolias followed in the Summer by roses, water lilies and clematis.

 





Betws y Coed


North Wales' most popular inland resort, where the River Conwy meets its three tributaries flowing from the west, the Llugwy, the Lledr and the Machno.

 





Llanrwst


The main market town in the Conwy Valley is Llanrwst across the River Conwy from Trefriw by a famous bridge dating back to the 17th Century. Close to the bridge is a 15th century cottage, Tu Hwnt i'r Bont, which was once a courthouse and now is a tea room owned by the National Trust.






Dolwyddelan


The peaceful village of Dolwyddelan is located in the Lledr Valley. Its 13th Century castle, built by the Princes of Gwynedd to guard a strategic mountain pass through Snowdonia, is said to be the birthplace of Llywellyn Fawr. The hills above the village provide excellent views of Snowdon, and the Lledr River is noted for its salmon and trout fishing.






Penmachno


Enjoy pleasant walks to the Conwy and Machno Falls. Penmachno Woollen Mill is a popular attraction standing on the banks of the river Machno. Nearby, in the Wybrnant Valley, is Ty Mawr, birthplace of Bishop William Morgan whose translation of the Bible into Welsh in 1588 ensured the survival of the language.
