The North Wales region
North Wales and the Snowdonia National Park are rightly famed for their stunning coastal and mountain scenery.
Indeed the Welsh coast was named the "best region on Earth" to visit by Lonely Planet in 2012.
There is a huge variety of out-door activities available along the coast and within the mountains and valleys of Snowdonia. Walking and hiking in the National Park is spectacular at any time of the year. White water rafting is available and the area is very popular with rock climbers.
The National Trust's Bodnant Gardens, a little way beyond Conwy, is a popular tourist destination as is the new Welsh Food Centre. There is also Greenwood Forest Park and the zoos at Chester and the Welsh Mountain Zoo, Further afield is Sir Clough Williams-Ellis' italianate masterpiece, Portmeirion Village.
Spectacular views of Snowdonia can be had on the Snowdon Mountain Railway, the Ffestiniog Railway and the wonderful Welsh Highland Railway. Pleasure flights are available from Caernarfon.
And then there are the castles and iron age hillforts.......lots of them! Wales has more castles than anywhere else in the world.
Deganwy is a beautifully situated village. It lies on the banks of the Conwy Estuary, south of the Victorian resort town of Llandudno, and just across the water from medieval Conwy. It offers spectacular views of Conwy Castle, a World Heritage Site, and the mountains of Snowdonia beyond.
The remains of the Welsh castle of Deganwy, on its twin peaks, are high above the village.
Deganwy is famed for its antique shops. It also has several restaurants and two cafes, as well as a post office. Nearby are 3 golf courses, a dry-ski slope and toboggan run, ten pin bowling, and a multiplex cinema. Sailing courses are offered at Conwy Marina and yachts or boats can also be hired or chartered.
