Conwy Castle and the town walls were built, on the instruction of
Edward I of England, between 1283 and 1289, as part of his conquest
of the principality of Wales. Conwy was the original site of
Aberconwy Abbey, founded by Llywelyn the Great. Edward and his
troops took over the abbey site and moved the monks down the Conwy
valley to a new site at Maenan, establishing Maenan Abbey. The
parish church still retains some parts of the original abbey church
in the east and west walls. English settlers were given incentives
to move to the walled garrison town, which for decades the Welsh
were forbidden from entering.

Welcome to Sychnant Pass Country House set in three acres of
landscaped gardens on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park.
Framed by some of the most beautiful and dramatic scenery Wales has
to offer, our privately owned country house has the feel of a remote
rural hideaway and yet is just a short drive from the main A55
making it easily accessible all year round.
12 double rooms are named after traditional Welsh hymn tunes. All
have ensuite bathing facilities and come equipped with combinations
of roll-top baths, whirlpool baths, corner baths, and single and
double showers to suit all tastes. One of our rooms even has an
outside hot tub.
two galleried rooms are laid out on split levels allowing guests to
separate their living and sleeping accommodation - and giving
parents the option of having their own separate space while their
children sleep safely down below.
of our superior suites have been designed with celebrations and
special occasions in mind. Our Platinum Suite (Cwm Rhondda), for
example, has a recessed Emperor size bed that can be curtained off
from the main room affording a bride-to-be and her entourage the
space and seclusion to prepare for the wedding ceremony or, the
night before the big day, allowing parents to hold a private drinks
reception for both families.
