Rhos-on-Sea, also known as Rhos or Llandrillo, is located in Conwy County Borough, Wales. With its sandy beach, graceful seafront promenade and unique history, it’s easy to see why this low-key resort has attracted holidaymakers for centuries. Take a stroll from your self-catering holiday cottage in Rhos-on-Sea and yo will discover a maze of pretty streets, packed with independent shops, cafes and restaurants. Wander along the sweeping walkway which runs from the town’s breakwater all the way to Colwyn Bay, with breathtaking views along the coast. The beach and seafront are perfect for whiling away an afternoon by the water. Search for crabs on the jetty, take an invigorating swim in the sea or build a sandcastle while boats bob by the breakwater. At Rhos Point, you will find St. Trillo’s Chapel, which stands on the site of an ancient healing well and is said to be Britain’s smallest church, seating only six. Follow the Rhos-on-Sea Heritage Trail, a picturesque route which takes in 25 historic sites in less than three hours. On a rugged hilltop overlooking the town, you will find the remains of an ancient hill-fort and limestone quarry.

Holiday Rentals in Rhos-on-Sea would be incomplete without a trip to Britain’s oldest permanent puppet theatre, the Harlequin Puppet Theatre, which is home to around 1,000 marionettes and puts on regular shows during the school holidays. Golfers won’t want to miss the town’s excellent 18-hole parkland course, with stunning sea views.

A little further along the coast, the Lyn Peninsula is a jagged finger of land with remote, rocky coves and pretty fishing villages which time seems to have forgotten.
