Cae Du Is In The Conwy valley, a green and wooded part of the Snowdonia National Park. Snowdonia is an area of outstanding natural beauty, with many mountains, notably Snowdon, the tallest. If you are feeling fit, there are many clear paths to the top which can be walked; alternatively, you can take the Snowdon mountain train from Llanberis up the 3560-foot summit. The area has a history of mining, particularly slate, and the chances are if you have a slate roof, the slate came from this area. You can visit some of these mines. Castles are plentiful, some in remarkable condition, all open to visitors. Some other places of interest are Portmeirion village (where "Prisoner" was filmed) and Conwy, a beautiful walled town with harbour. The victorian town of Llandudno, with its masive promenade,take lunch at Osborn house hotel, and cable car to the Great Orme with its dry ski slope and toboggan run. You can also find many stunning beaches some quite remote places.

You can buy supplies here. Dolwyddelan, about a mile away, is a small village with a pub and Spar store, as well as the remains of a castle.
