Dominated by its impressive medieval castle, the World Heritage Site of Conwy is a fantastic, bustling town. The castle walls wrap themselves around a town which offers much to visitors, including a lovely marina, many fairs and festivals, specialist and national shops, quality restaurants and traditional pubs. The ‘Smallest House In Britain’ is also to be found here; measuring 72 inches wide by 122 inches high, this unique house was occupied until 1900. Take a boat trip on the estuary, walk the walls, climb the towers, or relax for a coffee on the quayside.g. Or why not play Golf? The Conwy golf club is located 400 metres from the house and has been home for the Ryder Cup Wales Seniors Open for the past two years and the venue for the prestigious European Amateur Team Championship during July 2009.
There is a RSPB bird reserve located about 1 mile form the house and there is a bus that can take you there. Just a short drive or train ride from the town can be found the Snowdonia National Park, National Trust, Bodnant Gardens, historic houses, sandy beaches, the Isle of Anglesey and stunning scenery.
