Region: Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.
Town: Conwy is an historic town and has been declared a World Heritage Site in recognition of its architecture and other links with the past. The town is most renowned for its medieval castle and town walls that are almost complete, both of which offer fantastic views of Snowdonia and the estuary of the River Conwy. Today Conwy is a bustling town that caters for both tourists and the local community. Ancient buildings sit comfortably among more recent properties and there is an abundance of places to visit. Top of the list is the Castle, but there are many more, including Plas Mawr, an architectural gem and said to be the finest surviving Elizabethan townhouse to be found anywhere in Britain. Towards the quayside you will find Aberconwy House a 14th Century merchant's house believed to be the oldest townhouse in Wales. It has been carefully restored to reflect the daily life of its residents over time. On the quayside you may enter the smallest house in Britain or visit the Aquarium and Conwy mussel museum. Take a boat trip on the river and see the Great Orme, or sail upriver to see the full beauty of the Conwy Estuary and the Conwy Valley.

Very friendly and helpful owners of a cottage in a wonderful location. Difficulties with the plumbing were rectified as quickly as possible and they were flexible and accommodating to any requests.
First time stay in the Conway district, most enjoyable.

Lovely small cottage, took some locating, really off the beaten track. quite close to the owners property, but still secluded. lovely locationapprox' 2+ miles out of Conway itself, a good location for either staying there and enjoying the seclusion, exploring the sites around North Wales; Conway, Llandudno, Bodnant Gardens, all of Anglesey, Great. Even though the weather was mixed, still very enjoyable. Property owners very helpful, on hand if you needed information or help. Recommended.
