Within the Snowdonia National Park and the county of Conwy in Wales lies the village of Cwm Penmachno. This small settlement is close to the Gwydyr Forest Park in North Wales, part of Snowdonia, popular among tourists for its scenic hill-walking routes among woodland and streams.
Cwm Penmachno is a former quarry settlement, without a great many facilities itself but just a couple of miles to the east of the town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, one of the larger communities in this part of Wales.
A 10-minute drive from Cwm Penmachno, the village of Penmachno is a popular spot for lovers of the great outdoors, as it’s a gateway to exploring the wonderful scenery of Snowdonia on foot, by bike, in a kayak or by canoe. Between Cwm Penmachno and the larger village of Penmachno (3.6 miles) is the car park from which the Penmachno Mountain Bike Trail heads out through the national park.
Betws-y-Coed, the rural adventure hub of Snowdonia is just 8 miles up the road, offering a range of cafés and pubs to replenish your energy after a tiring day exploring.
