Well 2019 as like many years seems to be flying by and I can’t believe we are halfway through the year already. A couple of times of year I stay in North Wales and use Llandudno as a base as I love spending time in the place.
This brings back happy memories from my childhood when we used to have a caravan, on a farm in Colwyn Bay, so used to go to Llandudno many times.
I arrived in Llandudno around 2pm and the sun was shining. It is great when you drive in knowing that you have a relaxing few days ahead.
After checking in to the hotel, it was time to walk across the road and sit on the front to just chill out in the sun and hear the waves crashing against the beach.
After a couple of hours sitting in the sun we got a coffee from a local cafe which was only a two minute walk from the hotel. After that it was back to the hotel then off out for a something to eat.
We ended up having a drink and meal at “The Cottage Loaf” which is a lovely pub just off the main road, in town and behind the Wetherspoons pub. The food is very nice and there is a good atmosphere.
On the Thursday morning we had a lovely breakfast with this view.
After breakfast we had a walk on the front and the pier then decided to take a drive to Conwy. This is is only about 5 miles away and you can be there within 10-15 minutes.
There is lots to do in Conwy including the castle, boat rides, lots of small shops, cafes and the waterfront which includes the smallest house.
The last day was spent in Llandudno in the morning with a trip up the Great Orme. There is a cafe at the top and wonderful views in all directions. There are different ways to go up and down the Great Orme including driving yourself, by bus, by cable car or using the tram which is what we did.
The afternoon was spent on the other side of Llandudno, on the North Shore, which is very picturesque but quieter than the main front by the pier.
The last evening was spent out for a drive. We went to Deganwy which overlooks the bay at Conwy and had a drink and a meal at the Quay Hotel and Spa. This was a nice place and views were amazing.
We then went on to Conwy and had a drink in the Liverpool Arms pub on the waterfront.
Then it was back to Llandudno where there was a lovely sunset.
I would highly recommend a trip to North Wales 🏴 especially Llandudno and the surrounding areas. I am already looking forward to my next trip.
