The North Wales region
Stretching from the sandy beaches on the coast to the foothills of Snowdonia, Conwy offers much for the outdoors enthusiast. And there's much for history lovers to enjoy too, as you'll discover during your break at our holiday cottage in Mochdre Nr.Conwy.
The historic town of Conwy is a World Heritage Site and its castle, perched high on a rock overlooking the town is possibly the most magnificent of Edward I's Welsh strongholds. Conwy is also one of the few medieval towns with its walls still intact. Aberconwy House is a wonderfully restored Merchant's house from the 14th century and Conwy also boasts possibly the smallest house in Britain, standing just over 10 feet high.
Our holiday cottage in Mochdre ,Conwy is also ideally located for the charming resort town of Llandudno. Built in the Victorian era, it seems the 20th century has passed it by. Don't miss the 100 year old Great Orme Tramway which takes you up to Great Orme's Head, now a country park and nature reserve. It's like the famous San Francisco cable cars. Away from the coast, Betws-y-coed is a noted centre for hill walking and the famous Swallow Falls are nearby.
The village of Mochdre is famed for its parish church, which is actually the church of the parish of Llangwstennin (Cystennin being the Welsh version of Constantine Constantine I, the Roman Emperor who is reputed to have been born at the Roman settlement of Segontium in Caernarfon, north Wales), as it allegedly sits on the site of the oldest Early Christian church in Wales.
Mochdre has a place in railway history. Sited on the North Wales Coast Line from Chester to Holyhead, it was the location of experimental trackside water troughs, from which passing steam locomotives could scoop up fresh water supplies without having to stop. These devices became commonplace around the world, but Mochdre was the first place they were ever used, around October 1860. Ironically the exact spot is now a stretch of the A55 dual carriageway, the railway line having been realigned slightly to the north when this section of the road was built in the mid-1980s. Here too was Mochdre and Pabo station, closed originally in January 1917 as a World War I economy measure, reopened in May 1919, and finally closed for good in January 1931. There is still a "Station Road".
Former footballer Mickey Thomas is a native of Mochdre.
