In the nearby village of Glanwydden (short walk and Taxi back up the Hill) is the Queens Head Pub and restaurant which has won National awards, including AA Pub of the Year, for the quality of it's food. Excellent Beer and lovely, friendly atmosphere. A main course isn't cheap but the food is exceptional : http://www.queensheadglanwydden.co.uk/
Just outside Brtyn Pydew Village can be found the Obelisk, while this local Folly is not much in itself the view from the base of it is stunning. It is is an area of Special Scientific Interest because of the Wild Orchids that flourish there so you need to watch where you tread and keep to the 'Path way'. Dogs need to be kept on a Lead for obvious reasons. Lovely views over Conwy town and the amazing Conwy Castle.
North Wales has become known as the adventure playground of the UK. Local attractions include an All Weather Ski Slope, Cable cars, Tram Ride up the Great Orme which is a treasure in itself having the oldest Bronze Age Copper Mines in the UK. Llandduno has Speed Boat Rides, The Cresta Run, Pier, Bodafon Farm (hosts several big events each year), Bodnant Gardens. About 30 minutes away is Surf Snowdonia a huge Inland Surf/Water park (watch the video on the website it is astonishing but takes a little while to load), Zip World the longest Zip Wire in the UK, Rock Climbing and one of the biggest adventures of all : Snowdon.
For Snowdon the best start point is probably Llanberis which has numerous attractions in it's own right, like Electric Mountain : fabulous bus tour of a Hydro Electric Powerstation deep inside the Mountain. As the publicity says, it really is like a Film Set from a James Bond movie. There is a Slate Museum, Lakeside Railway, ruined Castle, and the Snowden Moutain Railway start point.
Over towards Caernarfon is the Welsh Highland Steam railway, Caernarfon itself with it's magnificent Castle and Harbour, the Airport and Museum.
Nearby can be found the spectactular Penrhyn Castle which was built in the late 1800's as a huge luxury House. Now N.T. owned it has a surprisingly decent industrial Steam Engine museum.
Our area is becoming the destination of choice for all ages.

The Conwy Marina a few miles along the coast is also worth a visit, if only to go into the Mulberry pub, named after the famous Mulberry Harbours essential to success during the WW2 landings in Normandy.
Conwy played a big role in the development of the Mulberry harbour, at one point over 1,000 local people and contracters were involved. The floating Mulberry Harbours were used to construct two harbours the size of Dover, yet assembled in days!! See : http://www.combinedops.com/Mulberry%20Harbours.htm
