The Local Area

We are "lucky" to be located in the centre of Llanrwst on the edge of the 823 square mile Snowdonia National Park and the local area is ideally placed as a base for the wide variety of amazing places to visit near by.

We are within 20-30 minutes of areas of outstanding natural beauty, breathtaking coastline, world famous castles, industrial archeology (some dating back to the Bronze Age), bird sanctuaries, fishing and breath-taking scenery and world heritage sites.

Many people regard Snowdonia as one for the most ancient and beautiful regions in Europe that attracts people from around the world, some of whom, like us decide to move here.

The market town of Llanrwst with its' narrow 17th century stone bridge, historic church, picturesque Tu Hwnt ir Bont tearoom (dating back to 1480), and Gwydir Castle (an ancient Welsh house dating back to about 1500) is an ideal place to visit or stay with many cafes & eateries (including Ty Asha, an award winning Indian restaurant & takeaway) , craft and antique shops, and despite the A470 running through it retains much of the traditional shops you might expect such as butchers and bakers (although no candlestick makers). On the other side of the river is the village of Trefriw which is home to a Roman spa and the Trefriw Woolen Mill while slightly further away are the village of Betws-y-Coed and the seaside town of Llandudno.
