Things to do in Trefriw, North Wales


Situated on the meandering B5106, Conwy to Betwys y Coed road, in the shadow of the Carneddau mountains, within the Snowdonia National Park.

Driving over a narrow bridge on leaving the town of Dolgarrog, you will be immediately aware, on your right, of some rather prominent, unbelievably large classical garden urns. This is the home of the worlds largest permanent garden hedge maze, covering over two acres. Lots of other surprises hidden within.

Less than half a mile later, is the famous Trefriw Spa wells, discovered by the Romans and very popular since Victorian times.

A further mile brings us towards the town centre, beginning with the fabulous refurbished Princess Arms Hotel. A finer hostelry you will not find ! Two further popular Inns, in the town centre, are the Ship Inn and the Fairy Falls, both excellent by all accounts.

Also situated here are a selection of Guest houses and the famous Trefriw Woollen Mill. This attracts a deservedly large number of visitors to what is a working mill, weaving some fabulous wool products, including beautiful distinctive bedspreads.

The town is a popular centre for easy and more challenging walks into the fringe of the National Park.

The lovely old market town of Llanrwst is reached, from here, along a mile long traffic free lane, crossing the beautiful River Conwy.

The absolutely gorgeous Lake Crafnant is reached from the town centre, via a wonderful two to three mile circuit.
