The sleepy village of Rhyd-y-Foel is located in the unspoiled Rhos area of the County Borough of Conwy. Surrounded by idyllic countryside, with a rugged stretch of coast directly to its north, it is an excellent base from which to explore North Wales. The village itself is little more than a scattering of historic homes, set amid rolling farmland and woods, near the banks of the River Dulas. Well off the beaten path, self-catering holidays in Rhyd-y-Foel are perfectly suited to visitors who want to hike, while away days of the beach, and discover the region’s fishing villages and seaside resorts. A short drive northeast from holiday cottages in Rhyd-y-Foel, Pensarn Beach is a vast stretch of sand and shingle, where a graceful promenade overlooks the shore. It is the perfect spot for a day of sunbathing and swimming, with calm water and cafes overlooking the sea. Nearby, Abergele Golf Club is open to visiting golfers, while Gwrych Castle is an impressive Georgian fortress with stunning gardens to explore.
Visitors to Alpine Lodge are offered the rare privilege of enjoying a rural cottage nestled between the mountains and the sea. The pet-free, detached cottage sits in its own grounds on the outskirts of Rhyd-y-Foel, in North Wales and is just moments from Snowdonia and the sandy beaches of Abergele.
