Betws y Coed

As well as a large array of restaurants and cafés, the village has a huge variety of walking and hiking shops and has an interesting selection of independent Welsh art and craft shops. The village also features the very old Pont Y Pair Bridge with the stunning Pair Falls rushing underneath and 2 miles upstream the beautiful Swallow Falls. A short distance in the opposite direction is the magical Fairy Glen. There is also the picturesque Victorian train station which has a main line connection to the coast, a railway museum and miniature railway. Next to the railway station is a golf course and the 14th Century St Michael’s Church overlooking the River Conwy (Betws y Coed actually means Prayer House in the Woods).

The village has many walks and cycle routes for the able to the ambitious on its doorstep. Visit here for more information and ideas for days out.  If you don’t have your own bike you can hire one from Beics Betws  in the village.
