Gwynedd - Conwy

Conwy is a walled market town and community in Conwy County Borough on the north coast of Wales. The town, which faces Deganwy across the River Conwy, formerly lay in Gwynedd and prior to that in Caernarfonshire. Conwy has a population of 14,208 (Including nearby Llandudno Junction and Deganwy). (The town itself has a population of around 4,000). and is a popular tourist destination on the north Wales coast. It is a place in Wales where the old Welsh language can still be heard in widespread, casual and official usage.
A view of the original walled town, viewed from one of the towers. Conwy Castle is visible to the right, with the suspension bridge barely visible.
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.

Sychnant Pass Country House

Tel: 01492 59 68 68

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.

Our 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.

Our 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.

Two 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.
