Conwy Town - Castle Walls
Closest to our hearts is, of course, the medieval walled town of Conwy. From the foreboding castle to the picturesque quay and the small winding streets that link them, Conwy is a real treasure. A town with a story to tell, it’s brimming with unique little boutiques and eateries. Be sure to walk the walls of Conwy to get a real feel for this rustic charmer of a town; on a clear day the views are superb – taking in Conwy, Llandudno, Deganwy, Penmaemawr and parts of the Snowdonia National Park. Visit the castle and the wonders of the Conwy Suspension Bridge.
Visit the world’s first inland surf lagoon, where you’ll be guaranteed a surf break. With technology offering varieties of waves so ride, suitable for all levels and is family friendly.
A stunning National Trust garden, nestled in the foothills of Snowdonia. 80 acres of beautiful lawns, meadows, water gardens, and towering trees, with every changing scenery all through the year.
Llandudno is packed full of places to see and things to do. Take a trip around the town and visit the selection of small, vintage independent shops or enjoy a stroll along the seafront. If you’re looking to venture further out, why not take the kids out for a day at the Welsh Mountain Zoo or opt for a peaceful walk through the stunning Bryn Euryn Nature Reserve. Looking for something a little higher? Explore the Great Orme and take a ride on the Tramway to reach the Summit for breathtaking views.
Just over an hour’s drive from The Groes Inn, Portmeiron is a little slice of magic. The popular tourist village in Gwynedd, North Wales was designed and built by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis between 1925 and 1975 in the style of an Italian village; pickled with brightly coloured houses and pretty streets it certainly wouldn’t be out of place on the Italian Riviera. Today, the handsome village is owned by a charitable trust and an entrance fee is payable – currently £10 per adult (discounts available online). This village has served as the location for numerous films and television shows, most famously as ‘The Village’ in the 1960s television show The Prisoner.
