Conwy county has a beautiful landscape, delicious restaurants, interesting history and more. It has so many activities to have a go at, and is welcoming to all types of people; relaxers, adventurers, families, and couples. With the high level of high spec apartments now available in North Wales such as our wonderful new build ‘View’ apartments, it’s easy to see why so many people choose to settle here. This list looks at reasons why Conwy is the perfect place to reside.
- It’s a stunning landscape.
The landscape in Conwy is nothing short of incredible. At any point you only need to look around you to see the dramatic peaks of the mountains and hills that aren’t far away. Wherever you are in the County, you’ll also be not far from the sea. It’s home to many beaches and harbours that feel calm and relaxing. Betws-y-Coed is just down the valley, and considered the gateway to Snowdonia.
- It’s adventurous activities.
If you’re a fan of action-packed, adrenaline-filled activities, then Conwy is ideal. There’s something exciting in every corner. Down in Llanrwst there is Zip World, which has things to do for all the family including a forest coaster, an obstacle course in the treetops, and a giant swing that sends you 80ft into the air!
Moving up the Valley in Dolgarrog, is Surf Snowdonia. Here you can tackle the huge indoor obstacle course, or ride the waves in the UK’s first artificial wave lagoon. At the seaside resort of Llandudno, you can find a ski slope! Sound a bit out of place, right? But its dry slope is fantastic for those around who love extreme snow sports.
- The incredible food and drink.
The expansive land, and clean seas mean that the food produced here is divine. Many of the restaurants in the area are proud to serve local produce wherever possible. Conwy is especially known for its mussels!
There are some nationwide loved drinks from the distilleries and breweries in Conwy, including Aber Falls Gin made in Abergwyngregyn, and Conwy Brewery.
- The Welsh language is spoken here.
The historic language is still being spoken around the county of Conwy. The language is estimated at being approximately 4,000 years old, but is still seen on many signs in the area.
It’s a proudly bilingual area, and it’s common to hear locals conversing in the language. This can give you the chance to learn something new – a couple of words or sentences from the historic Celtic language.
- The fascinating history.
Conwy county could be considered a history lover’s dream. As you enter the town of Conwy, you’re greeted by the Conwy Castle, a medieval castle built by King Edward I at the end of the 13th Century. Just next to this is the impressive suspension bridge built in 1826 by Thomas Telford, one of the earliest suspension bridges still here today!
In the seaside town of Llandudno, the Victorian times are still treasured. This is apparent at the Great Orme tramway and the Grade II listed Victorian pier.
So, if you think Conwy country sounds like a fantastic place to live, then why don’t you pop down to our showplot and start planning the life of your dreams? We’re open Thursday – Monday from 10am till 4:30pm.
