Conwy, Wales

Conwy Castle, Conwy Waless

Conwy Castle, Conwy, Wales

 

Riding along the narrow , very narrow hedge rows / stone walls the main topic of conversation has been, “OHHHH! I think we’re going to hit it!” or “Move over, move over!” or “Can’t you see how close we are to the wall?” We are truly ready to arrive in Conwy! SB is ready to park the car! Bryn B&B, nestled in front of the castle and gates, is an oasis after the hedgerows! Everybody take a deep breath!  We are HERE!  Bryn B&B, a Victorian home from 1860, is perched on a hill in an outstanding garden. This will be “home base” in Conwy, Wales. After a brief tour of the B&B and a spot of tea in the garden, we are off to explore!

Conwy Castle and the town walls were built on the instruction of Edward I of England between 1283 and 1289 as part of his conquest of Wales.  Conwy was the original site of Aberconwy Abbey, founded by Llywelyn the Great. Edward I took over the abbey site and moved the monks further down the valley. English settlers were given incentives to move to the walled garrison town and for decades the Welsh were forbidden from entering Conwy. We have just enough time to climb the rampart walls before night falls! More tomorrow!  Enjoy!

    I love Wales – I had a few holidays there as a teenager with my Outdoor Pursuits club. Also my husband is from Widnes, between Liverpool and Manchester, which is not too far away from North Wales. We also have a cousin who lives near Wrexham. Looking at your photos I think it is time we went again!

    Annette, we had a wonderful time in Conwy! Being Americans it took a bit to get used to driving on the other side of the road and the drivers seat to the right! The drive was not bad in England, but it seemed the roads were smaller and the hedgerows closer in Wales. We were so jumbled by the time we got to Conwy, SB was in no mood to drive to the national park not far away! So I would love to go back in a teeny tenny car!
