  • “We had an absolutely brilliant time at the Shippon.”

    This charming little cottage was very well equipped and felt remote whilst also having easy access to the local area. The Shippon proved to be a great base for day trips to Snowdonia and Anglesey, although it is well worth exploring the hills which are right on the doorstep of the Shippon! ...

    This charming little cottage was very well equipped and felt remote whilst also having easy access to the local area. The Shippon proved to be a great base for day trips to Snowdonia and Anglesey, although it is well worth exploring the hills which are right on the doorstep of the Shippon! Our hosts Andrew and Sarah were very friendly and happy to give us information on the local area. We also brought two horses with us, and we couldn't have asked for better equestrian facilities! Stables with yard, tack room, paddock, all right outside the cottage! Andrew was even kind enough to lend us some equipment such as wheel barrows, buckets, spades etc to help look after the horses :) This beautiful location is really special and we will definitely be returning!

About the location

CONWY

Llandudno 5 miles; Betws-y-Coed 16 miles.

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 and 1287, 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 a 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 the perfect base for exploring the dramatic Snowdonia National Park, walking unspoilt sandy beaches, or taking in the wonderful scenery on your doorstep. Also within reach are the Llechwedd Slate Caverns, which has the longest zip wire in Europe, and Surf Snowdonia is just six miles away.
