Make a holiday rental home or holiday cottage in Conwy, Wales your home away from home

Conwy (Conway) is a market town on the north coast of Wales. It faces Deganwy across the River Conwy. In the past the town has been in the council district of Gwynedd and Caernarvonshire.

The cottage was very well fitted out and had everything we wanted. The SPAR shop opposite is ideal as well. Most places are in easy reach and there are lots of lovely walks directly from the property. We will be back.
