Conwy Falls or Rhaeadr Y Graig Lwyd is a waterfall in Betws-y-Coed, North Wales. Well signposted by the side of the A5 south of the town, the falls are a 10-minute walk from the car park.
The walk is through woodland on natural tracks some decent shoes/trainers/boots are advised. And, it is worth taking the longer route you are offered on the notice board as it is a pretty little stroll through the trees. Also, you are afforded some lovely views down to the river gorge through the trees. And the sounds are amazing!
I love waterfalls. There is something relaxing about them. And this is the third of my North Wales waterfalls. The other two are Swallow Falls and Ceunant Mawr waterfall.
As is usual in British Culture, wherever there are two or more people gathered there will be someone there to sell them a cup of tea and a bit of cake! Of course, Conwy Falls is no exception. There is a large cafe with all sorts of goodies on offer.
Cost of Conwy Falls
£1. Yes, that’s all and it’s money well-spent in my opinion. A lovely walk in the woods and a marvellous waterfall halfway round. Top tip, take a £1 coin for each person. It’s a turnstile gate used to gain entry. And if you already have the pound coin, it saves asking for change in the cafe.
On the A5, just south of Betws-y-Coed. The postcode for satnav is LL24 0PN.
