North Wales Walking
There are several beautiful walks that start from our door, or why not enjoy a stroll through our 17 acres of woodland and gardens. We provide maps for established routes although we do not offer guided walks.
Llanfairfechan is renowned for its walks which suit all ages and abilities.
Choose a gentle stroll along the ‘Cob’ by the seashore or walk from Terrace Walk to Three Streams where you will find panoramic views over Aberconwy Bay and Menai Straits to Anglesey. If you prefer more strenuous exercise there are numerous trails in the surrounding hills leading up to the Aber Lake, The Druids Circle and the old Roman Road.
The next village along from Llanfairfehan, Abergwyngregyn, boasts one of the most beautiful waterfalls in North Wales – Aber Falls. The highlight of the walk are the breathtaking falls but along the way take in the sweeping views, streams and gullies.
The North Wales Coastal Path is also easily accessible.
Rhiwiau also serves as an ideal base for high level mountain walks up to the Carneddau range, with such challenging peaks as, Tal-y-Fan(2001 ft), Drum(2529ft), Foel Fras(2092 ft), Carnedd Dyfydd (3425ft) and Carnedd Llwelyn (3484ft), all in the Snowdonia National Park.
For walks further afield, the Sherpa and other local bus services combine with the Conwy Valley Railway service from Llandudno Junction as an alternative to using the car. Combined tickets are available. There are no shortage of places to visit during your stay in North Wales with historic castles, National Trust houses, Betws-y-coed and Snowdonia, marine and bird reserves, golden beaches on Anglesey, beautiful gardens, theatres, water sports, zoos, dry ski slopes, 10-pin bowling, golf, fishing and Horse riding.
Llanfairfechan Upland Walk Walk from the coastal village to cross the thousand-foot contour line at the base of the Carneddau range of mountains for views of the Old Stone Age axe factory, Dinas hill fort, Anglesey and the Great Orme
Old Colwyn Along its 60-mile length, the North Wales Path has sufficient variety to keep the most exacting of ramblers happy. At Old Colwyn, walk through the magical Fairy Glen, a hidden woodland in the centre of the town, for panoramic views of rural Conwy and its agricultural landscape, to descend into Llanddulas past the quarry.
The Great Orme Take a five-mile brisk walk on Marine Drive around the Great Orme. Enjoy the spectacular views of the cliffs, seabirds and climbers. Or explore the country park from the visitors centre at the summit. Try to spot the Feral Kashmir goats, which have been on the Orme since the 1890’s.
