Ever wondered why Conwy is such a visitor hotspot? Book one of our delightful Conwy cottages and find out for yourself.
What a special place Conwy is! Framed by the imposing peaks of Snowdonia, the fortress town rises up from a pretty estuary just a mile from the sea, adorned with an elegant suspension bridge, a magnificent Edwardian castle and an exquisite set of town walls. Indeed, the latter two are classed as a World Heritage Site.
Conwy Castle is Edward I's greatest masterpiece and the
views from its battlements are sure to linger long in the memory.
Enjoy a pleasant stroll around the walls - one of Europe's
finest and best preserved sets, with over twenty towers and three

Fancy a bite to eat? Inside the walls is a labyrinth of medieval cobbled streets lined with places to eat and drink. The shopping's good too, with arts and crafts, exclusive boutiques and quirky gift shops. And there are other heritage sites to discover like Plas Mawr, a splendid Elizabethan mansion and Aberconwy House, a 14th Century merchant's house.
Wander down to the quayside and soak up the nautical atmosphere - Conwy is a great sailing centre and every year crowds gather at the Conwy River Festival. Find the Smallest House in Britain, the fascinating Mussel Museum, or enjoy a cruise along the estuary. Upstream there's an RSPB Nature Reserve, with guided walks, variety of events and monthly farmers' market.
And with glorious countryside all around your Conwy cottage, it makes perfect sense to pack your boots and bikes.
