Staying at the Winchmore Hotel
4 DAYS | 18th September 2018
Set on a wide curving bay, Llandudno is one of the largest resorts in North Wales and incorporates some of the most beautiful scenery of the Welsh Mountains and coast line. The resort offers modern facilities whilst still retaining its elegant Edwardian charm. You can take a stroll along the promenade, visit the Victorian Pier, browse the shops, take in a show at the theatre or hop on the vintage tramway up the Great Orme – Llandudno has something for everyone.
The family run Winchmore Hotel is situated in a perfect location on the promenade, looking out over the bay together with the headlands of the Great Orme and Little Orme and just a short walk from all Llandudno has to offer. The hotel offers a lift to all floors and boasts a spacious dining room, a residential bar and inviting lounges from where you can enjoy the spectacular views. All bedrooms are en-suite with TV, and courtesy tea tray. The hotel also offers occasional evening entertainment.
We depart Macclesfield and call for morning coffee at Grosvenor Garden Centre. We then head across country to the historic town of Ruthin with its fine collection of black and white medieval buildings. You will have time for lunch before we visit Nantclwyd y Dre, Wales’s oldest dated timbered town house. The house was started in 1435 and has been beautifully restored together with the garden. We learn all about the house and its inhabitants before continuing our journey to Llandudno and our hotel.
Today we venture up the Conwy Valley to the Trefirew Woollen Mill where we stop for morning coffee and have the opportunity to see traditional Welsh tapestry being woven. We then head back down the valley to the walled market town of Conwy with its delightful harbour and magnificent castle. We return to the hotel mid afternoon.
A day for your leisure in Llandudno
After a relaxed breakfast we make our way to Corwen for a trip on a steam train on the Llangollen Railway. The line is located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and remains close to the waters of the River Dee for most of its length. We alight the train in Llangollen where you have time for lunch. Mid-afternoon we say a sad farewell to Wales and continue our journey home making a quick comfort stop en-route, we aim to arrive in the Macclesfield area around tea time.
