Conwy Cottage – 4 Berth
Named after Afon Conwy (River Conwy) which is a little over 27 miles (43 km) long. The name ‘Conwy’ derives from the old Welsh words ‘cyn’ (chief) and ‘gwy’ (water). It rises on the Migneint moor, then flows in a generally northern direction to Betws-y-coed and through, Trefriw, Dolgarrog before reaching Conwy Bay. The scattered communities along the Conwy valley have ancient traditions with archeological evidence of habitation back to the Stone Age. The Romans occupied this area up to 400 AD and there has been continuous habitation since that time. The valley is home to two of the oldest churches in Wales, those at Llanrhychwyn and Llangelynin, which respectively date back to the 11th and 12th centuries. At the mouth of the Conwy river is the town of Conwy with its World Heritage Site castle (Conwy Castle) and two famous bridges. One of the earliest road suspension bridges by Thomas Telford now carries a footpath whilst Robert Stephenson‘s tubular iron bridge still carries the main Holyhead to London railway line. Along with its history the Conwy Valley has untold amounts of beautiful places to discover.
This Cottage is upside down with the lounge and kitchen looking out from the first floor to the west of the property with views again of the Irish sea and Llandudno’s Great Orme. On good days the sunsets over the Great Orme are amazing, and can be viewed from the lounge window. Again Bron-Y-Wendon makes a great base to explore the amazing North Wales or to relax and unwind.
