Activities and Leisure…
There are lots of relaxing and reflective ways in which to enjoy the wonderful scenery in and around Betws-y-Coed. You can fish for salmon and sea trout along the tranquil rivers of Conwy & Llugwy, and on three well stocked local lakes. You will need to get a permit from www.betws-ycoed-anglers.org.
Why not try bird watching with the Glaslyn Osprey Project and on the Conwy RSPB reserve?
We’ve horse riding in Penmachno for novices and more experienced riding territory through the enchanting woods and forest.
We also have a golf course by the river which offers day memberships to visitors. Or walk through the Gwydyr Forest which now covers 7,250 hectares across Snowdonia’s eastern hills, study the wildlife or just absorb the peace of the woodland.
For garden lovers there is Ty Hyll (Ugly House), famous for its Bluebells & Wild Flower Garden, and the famous Bodnant Gardens, both only a few miles away. For the art lover, there are art & painting courses held locally and keep an eye out for the Snowdonia Arts Festival held in June every year for art workshops and exhibitions.
If geocaching is your bag, then there are plentiful treasures to find hidden in the woodland, riversides and hills and wilderness as well as in and around Betws-y-Coed.
If you’re looking to treat yourself, we suggest a visit to the Stations leisure complex at the Waterloo Hotel in Betws-y-Coed which has; a swimming pool, jacuzzi, steam room, sauna and gym plus massages, hair salon, beauty treatments available. A public pool and leisure centre is located in Llanrwst.
A short drive towards the coast will enable you to take in a show at Venue Cymru in Llandudno or a see a film at Cineworld in Llandudno Junction.
