Description

Ideally located on the quieter western side of the Conwy Valley, Preswylfa is a centrally positioned holiday property for an extended family gathering. There’s a lovely upstairs living room with a balcony with views of the mountains, and a fabulous relaxing hot tub, ideal to soothe those aching muscles after a day walking in the hills and mountains of the glorious Snowdonia National Park. The dining room has a lovely inglenook fireplace with a warming wood burner and two comfortable sofas; this room was formerly the village smithy and you can still see traces of its previous use. Just over half a mile away is a historic 500 year old pub and it’s actually the oldest licensed pub in Wales, and it’s dog friendly too.
The delightful town of Conwy is just a couple of miles away, with its Edward I castle and almost complete circuit of town walls (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), fascinating town houses of Plas Mawr (Cadw) and the National Trust’s Aberconwy House. The Victorian seaside resort of Llandudno is great for a day out with the Great Orme (679ft) which you can scale by tram, cable car, bus or on foot. The Bronze Age copper mines at the summit are well worth exploring, and Llandudno offers a full range of shops, beaches, and entertainment at the Venue Cymru Theatre and Arena. On the other side of the valley from your holiday property lies the stunning National Trust garden at Bodnant. A riot of colour all year round, the 80-acres of garden with both formal gardens and shady dells are a delight to behold. The wonderful laburnum arch is in flower in May and June each year, and there is a garden centre, not to mention the scrumptious cream teas in the tea rooms.
A couple of miles to the south is the amazing Surf Snowdonia, the only artificial surfing lagoon in Europe. The size of four football pitches, it is suitable for surfers of all abilities, or you can just enjoy a coffee and a snack in the poolside bar whilst watching all the surfers in action. The area is also a walkers’ paradise with walks from the door leading up to Tal y Fan to the west, whilst the leafy Gwydir Forest is close by. The market town of Llanrwst is nearby, with the pretty village of Betws-y-Coed with its range of outdoor shops just a little further. Fishing available nearby. Beach 3 miles. Shop 2½ miles, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

About the local area

Llandudno is one of the largest and most popular of the Welsh seaside resorts, and still retains much of its Victorian character and charm. The golden sandy beach at North Shore is set in the magnificent crescent shaped bay, flanked by Great Ormes Head and Little Orme, with Llandudno and its elegant promenade lying protected between the headlands.

Llandudno offers its visitors good shopping, with a modern shopping arcade discreetly designed to blend with the traditional surroundings. The North Wales Theatre on the promenade is a new 1500 seat theatre, where West End shows and the Welsh National Opera perform. Throughout the area you can experience the local culture at eisteddfodau, festivals and concerts and hear the famous Welsh male voice choirs.

For sporting enthusiasts Llandudno offers a Leisure Centre, Ten Pin Bowling, Tennis, Dry Slope Skiing, Golf, and on and off shore Fishing. For something different there is American floodlit Harness Racing at Tir Prince Raceway.

Colwyn Bay, just along the coast is another popular destination. The long Promenade follows the vast sweep from Old Colwyn to Penrhyn Bay and gives easy access to the wonderful beaches, pier and harbour at Rhos-on-Sea all joined by a cycle track allowing exercise and fresh air to be taken together or you can stroll along the beautiful unspoilt promenade with its wide walkway, and enjoy some refreshments at the kiosks situated along the way. There are also separate slipways situated along the promenade for fishing, sailing, and jet skiing.

Both Colwyn Bay and Rhos-on-Sea have shopping areas and are close to the renowned Welsh Mountain Zoo, several golf courses and plenty of places to walk and climb. Snowdonia, the Isle of Anglesey, castles and National Trust properties are all close by. The area also boasts a leisure centre at Eirias, gardens, bowling greens, tennis courts, and an athletics stadium.

While exploring the North Coast you will come across the beautiful town of Conwy set on the Conwy River Estuary, dominated by the majesty of Conwy Castle. Fine views can be seen over the harbour and Snowdonia forms the backdrop to this medieval walled town. It is no surprise that today Conwy is designated as a World Heritage Site. The massive fifteen-foot thick walls guarded by twenty two towers stretch for three-quarters of a mile around the town, making Conwy one of the finest walled towns of the medieval period. Today visitors can still walk the Castle walls, enjoying views around the town and Harbour.
