Conwy, a World Heritage Site, is without doubt world famous for its historical and architectural heritage. Yet at the heart of the town lies a hub of bustling activity. Alongside its ancient festivals and fairs, musical recitals, galleries and historical attractions there is an array of specialist shops, restaurants and hotels. Built for King Edward I between 1283 - 87, Master James of St George's design, Conwy Castle, remains one of the most outstanding achievements of medieval military architecture. The distinctive, elongated shape, with its two barbicans, eight massive towers and great bow-shaped hall, was perhaps determined by the narrow rocky outcrop on which the castle stands. The town is proud of its historic traditions and celebrates its past by retaining many of these in its annual festivals, events and fairs including the Honey fair, Seed fair and Gwledd Conwy Feast in October along with other musical events throughout the year. Conwy is a perfect base for exploring the dramatic Snowdonia National Park, walking unspoilt sandy beaches or taking in the wonderful scenery on your doorstep.

Previous visitors' comments about The Shippon:
The owners made us feel very welcome, a fire was lit and the key was in the door! They checked a couple of times that we were okay and to see if we needed any assistance. We had a splendid time there and it felt like home. Great base for all of North Wales really.

The location of cottage was central to places we visited, so was good location. It was quiet and peaceful at night and during the day time.
Miss Ratcliffe, Stoke-on-Trent, October 2012
Location, quietness, freedom for our dogs and general laid back approach.
Mr Herring, Aberdare, September 2012
Such a relaxing and peaceful cottage and garden. We had a much lazier holiday as a result. We were lucky with the weather and sitting outside was just lovely due to the pleasant surroundings and view.
