Rhyd y Foel

Rhyd y Foel is a small village close to the North Coast of Wales, and located within the area of Rhos, in the beautiful Conwy County. The scenic and quiet village sits at the foot of the western slopes of Pen y Corddyn Mawr. In ancient times this was the site of an iron age hillfort on the River Dulas and it’s just about a mile south of the neighbouring village of Llanddulas.

Llanddulas

Llanddulas is a village in Conwy County, and lies at the foot of the limestone precipice of Cefn yr Ogof. The hill is home to some sizeable caves, and has harboured a series of legends of the mountain. The Llanddulas area extends down to the coast, where there is a small rocky and sandy beach. The quarrying of limestone was the main industry of the area, with stone being crushed before being transported to the long jetty which extends out into the ocean, ready for shipping.

Gwrych Castle

A nearby point of interest is Gwrych Castle, a Grade I listed 19th-century country house, which was built to resemble a castle. This has been a site of prominence, and a popular area for re-enactments. This was also famously the setting for the 1996 medieval sword and sorcery movie ‘Prince Valiant’. After falling into disrepair, the castle was well restored to its current state and is now a very popular tourist destination.

Llysfaen

Llysfaen is a small village in the borough of Conwy County, which overlooks the North Coast of Wales. It takes its name from the Welsh for ‘Stone Court’ and is situated on the raised area of Mynydd Marian. Mynydd Marian is made from limestone and covered in swathes of emerald grass. It’s a fantastic location to live, as it boasts some breathtaking views of the surrounding area and over the ocean.
