Gwydir Mawr & Gwydir Bach

Gwydir Mawr and Gwydir Bach are both excellent mountain bike trails within a stone’s throw of our beautiful hotel, with huge climbs, descents, fantastic singletrack and scenery that only Llanrwst can manage. Most of the climbs on Gwydir Mawr and Gwydir Bach respectively are on singletrack, and vary from tight, technical and rocky to open and flowing as you move through both the forest and ridgelines.

Gwydir Bach is 8.7km, and Gwydir Mawr is 25km.

Dolen Machno & Dolen Eryri

These two trails (respectively known as the Penmachno trails) are the pride and joy of North Wales, which feature remote and very natural feeling trails with fantastic views of Snowdonia. Depending on your choice, you can either ride two loops individually or as one gigantic 30km loop. Please keep in mind that these trails are very remote, exposed, and with little to no phone signals.

Dolen Machno is a 19km ride, and Dolen Eryri is 11km.

Conwy Castle

Conwy Castle dominates the mouth of the River Conwy and the medieval walled town of Conwy in North Wales like a huge goliath and serves as the major tourist attraction in the county of Conwy. The castle was built on the orders of King Edward I of England and construction began in 1283 under the direction of Edward’s chief architect James of St. George. Today the castle is one of the best preserved castles in the whole of North Wales


Bodnant Garden

Bodnant Garden is one of the most beautiful gardens in the UK, spanning some 80 acres and is situated above the River Conwy on ground sloping towards the west and looking across the valley towards the Snowdonia range. The Garden has two parts. The upper garden around Bodnant Hall consists of the terraced gardens and informal lawns shaded by trees. The lower portion, known as the “Dell” is formed by the valley of the River Hiraethlyn and contains the Wild garden.


The Welsh Mountain Zoo

The Welsh Mountain Zoo is set in North Wales, high above Colwyn Bay with panoramic views and breathtaking scenery; its beautiful gardens are home to this caring conservation zoo. Roam the wooded pathways, relax on the grassy slopes and spend a lovely day learning about many rare and endangered species from Britain and around the world including Snow Leopards, Chimpanzees, Red Pandas and Sumatran Tigers!


The Great Orme Tramway

The Great Orme Tramway is Britain’s only cable-hauled public road tramway and has been delighting visitors from near and far since it opened on July 31st 1902.
The Tramway climbs a mile (1500m) high up the Great Orme Country Park and Nature Reserve with the unique journey beginning at Victoria Station then climbing to the Halfway Station exhibition, where you can discover the history of the fascinating funicular and view the Victoria engineering. Change trams at the Halfway Station and continue your journey to the Summit where the views are breath-taking!
