A message from David Masding who is the Chairman of Cerdded Conwy Walks:

Cerdded Conwy Walks is supported by Conwy Conty Borough Council. However all walks are led by volunteers. With limited funding available we therefore ask for a donation (suggested £2) from walkers. All donations go towards supporting the work of Cerdded Conwy Walks to continue to put on led walks for you to enjoy.

There are also walks you can do straight from the cottages themselves, we are surrounded by beautiful countryside with ordinance survey and local area maps available online. Or you can speak to us prior to your visit and we will be happy to help.

To find out about the rest of the walks planned for Conwy Walking Week, please visit www.cerddedconwywalks.org.
