The North Wales region
With its magnificent 13th century castle, picturesque quay and stunning mountainous backdrop the medieval walled town of Conwy and it's beautiful surrounding countryside is the perfect location for your holiday.
As well as the castle and surrounding walls the town also has a perfectly preserved Elizabethan town house located on the main High Street. Another iconic landmark situated on the quay is the smallest house in Great Britain, this is one of the most popular attractions in the town.
A Championship Golf Course, a beautiful stretch of beach, stunning walking routes, boat trips, art galleries, coffee shops, pubs and restaurants are just some of the activities available within Conwy itself.
Other attractions just on the doorstep include the RSPB nature reserve, Bodnant Garden, The Welsh Mountain Zoo, Llandudno's great Orme with dry ski slope and 4000 year old copper mines.
Slightly further a field you have the beautiful isle of Anglesey which is the current residence of Prince William and Kate who are regularly spotted there. The the Llyn peninsula, Portmeirion and of course Snowdon can all be reached in little over an hour.
As the cottage is located in the very centre of the town it is literally moments away from all the town has to offer. A lot of activity occurs down on the quay which regularly hosts food markets and fayres, boat trips depart from here and it is a pick up point for the local river taxi.
Two of the towns biggest events are focused on the quay, the Conwy Feast food festival (Oct 27th & 28th 2012) is not to be missed and the annual river Festival (Aug 18th - 26th 2012) is a really fun and popular event.
Bodlondeb park just outside the walls is ideal for children and adults alike, there is a gated play are for children with full size tennis courts right next door. The park is home to the local cricket team and there is no better way to spend a couple of hours than watching play from the sidelines. The park also hosts the annual blue grass festival ( 5th - 8th July 2012) where bands from around the world come and do their thing.
