welcome to Dwygyfylchi
Surely the prettiest valley in the North Wales national park, Dwygyfylchi is sheltered by the two headlands of Penmaenbach and Penmaemawr and is home to our pretty little cottage. By the 14th century records in Caernarfon, show Dwygyfylchi was already a settlement with 8 'holdings', although no records actually show where these holdings were. It was the main route at that time between Conwy and Bangor with the dangerous journey over the Sychnant Pass a nightmare on horse and cart and many a terrified traveller must have been relieved to see the Fairy Glen inn and a chance to disembark and take a 'tot' to steady the nerves. A favourite of Gladstone and 'Gentleman Jack', (Victorian diarist, Anne Lister,) this hidden valley has long been a favourite of the discerning holiday maker.
With spectacular views towards Puffin Island and Anglesey in the south, the Great Orme towards the north and the foothills of the Snowdon range it's beauty is breath-taking. Wild ponies graze on the mountains grasses and buzzards soar overhead, with' long stretch of clean sand on its' blue flagged beach it is a haven for wildlife.
Penmaenmawr and Conwy sailing clubs are in close proximity for those who want to take part in watersports.but for the landlubbers the village has a scenic golf club less than 5 minutes walk from the cottage. The path leading up to Foel Lus at the back of Conwy Old Road rewards hikers with spectacular views out to sea. Scramble higher and join the Jubilee Path where the ancient standing stones and iron age fort can be found up on the mountain tops - some of the finest examples in Wales.
For those who want a relaxing holiday without the hastle of cooking there are two pubs and two restaurants in the village, all of which are less than a mile from the cottage or a quiet pint can be enjoyed at the golf club if that is your preference.
