Betws-y-Coed (pronounced “bettus-uh-coh-ed”) lies in the Snowdonia National Park in Conwy, north Wales. I remember announcing in January that we were going to visit Betws-y-Coed this summer but I can tell you now, you have no idea how beautiful it is until you visit there.
I thought Alan from Master Clock might appreciate the photo of the station clock above.
There is a railway station at Betws-y-Coed and I would definitely like to travel there by train one day. It was a very long drive to get there and our car had a flat tyre too!
We spent many mornings relaxing in the numerous cafes around the railway station.
There was a film crew there the one morning, filming a special on the old horse drawn Royal Mail express in the area. The horses did not think it was all that much fun to stand there and wait while the film crew organised themselves! Still, I love that about the United Kingdom. Wherever you might be, there is always a little bit of history or intrigue around the corner.
Betws-y-Coed is a great area if you are in to climbing, hiking, canoeing or other outdoor activities. We did a lot of walking and a lot of appreciating the exercise other people were embarking on.
