Conwy is a market town on the north coast of Wales, a short distance from the northern tip of Snowdonia National Park. Conwy is a popular destination for anyone interested in the history of Wales, and the exceptional scenery in the surrounding area. There are all the modern amenities you would expect from a larger town in this part of the country, and all within easy reach of one of our excellent self-catering cottages.

The history of Conwy

Conwy is unusual in that it is a ‘walled’ town, defensively fortified during the various struggles of the Middle Ages, most notably during the reign of King Edward I in the 13th century. Conwy was the original site of Aberconwy Abbey, founded by Llywelyn the Great, in effect the leader of the Welsh nation for around 40 years during the early 13th century.

Aberconwy House, Conwy's only surviving 14th-century merchant's house, was one of the first buildings built inside the walls of the town and remains open to the public. Also available to visit is Plas Mawr, an Elizabethan house built in 1576 by the Wynn family, which has been extensively refurbished to its original 16th-century appearance. St Mary’s Church is the oldest building in the town, having stood within the walls since the 14th century - it was built on the site of a former church dating back a further 150 years.

The cultural highlights

The ancient buildings of the town described above are certainly worth visiting for an insight into the last few hundred years of history and culture in the area, though the primary historical monument in the city is of course the famous castle. Conwy Castle was built between 1283 and 1289, and played an important part in various events of British history, including the Civil War of the 17th century. During the war it was held by Royalists and subsequently ruined by the opposing Parliamentarians, but its history was so vivid it became a haven for artists and painters, leading eventually to its partial restoration.

Today the castle retains the earliest surviving stone machicolations (battlement openings through which defenders could drop things onto the heads of attackers) in Britain and some of the best preserved medieval private royal chambers in the country. A climb up the battlements is rewarded with some of the best coastal and mountain views in Wales.

The walls themselves are also interesting, and remarkably well preserved given their age. They form a three quarters of a mile-long triangular circuit around the town, and are built mostly from the same local sand and limestone used at the castle.

Another tourist attraction is Quay House, also known as The Smallest House in Great Britain. The house was used as a residence from the 16th century until 1900 when it became too small for then-occupant Robert Jones to live in and was declared too small for habitation by the local council. You can now squeeze yourself into this tiny abode for just a pound a visit.

One of the many and varied walks beginning in Conwy takes you up into Mynydd y Dref or Conwy Mountain, a hilly area to the west of the town. At the summit of Mynydd y Dref are the Neolithic Hut Circles and the Iron Age hillfort of Castell Caer, and the route along the hilltops comprises a section of the North Wales Path, a way-marked long distance walk of some 60 miles along the coast.

Holidays in Conwy

Conwy is a pretty medieval market town which has been protected throughout the centuries by stout, grey stone walls connected to Conwy Castle. Our Conwy cottages are the perfect place to explore the narrow streets, ancient history and battlements of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Set on a headland by the Conwy estuary this is also a great place for you to paddle at the beach, sail a yacht or take a boat trip on the Irish Sea.
