…you could stay a whole week at Conwy Valley Backpackers and still want to come back for more…
Conwy Valley Backpackers finds itself in an enviable position. The most obvious way is its geographical location. A tranquil working farm in the Conwy valley, surrounded by high mountains and the all the bucolic grace you’d expect: a stream runs just by it, guests are encouraged to picnic there, there is room for grazing if, by chance you’ve arrived by horse.
Looking more widely, there is the the friendly market town of Llanwrst and the climbers’ haven of Betws-Y-Coed. More widely still and you might find yourself exploring the North Wales Coast with its amazing beaches and some of the most awesome castles in Britain. I’ve spent days immersed in the history of Edward I and the Welsh and British legends intertwined with these fortifications.
looking inland, you’re drawn towards Snowdonia. Not just the mountain itself which provides endless challenge and adventure for all abilities, but also the exciting attractions which have grown up in its shadow. Ladies and Gentlemen I give you Surf Snowdonia, an artificial inland surfing lagoon; and Zip World and Bounce Below, a complex of trampoline-like bungee nets in an old mine and some of the longest Zip Wire rides in the world!
It sounds to me like you could block out whole week at Conwy Valley Backpackers and still want to come back for more.

The Conwy Valley stretches from the heart of Snowdonia out to Wales north west coast and is an ecologically precious area rich in ancient history. Most people head here to enjoy the spectacular walking in the national park, yet there is so much more to this pocket of North Wales than simply Snowdonia.Read More
