Rural Living in Conwy Valley


Welcome to our website. We have included on our site our main interests. These include Pygmy Goats, Local Wild Life, Bird Watching, Gardening, Hill Walking, Weather and Cycling.

We are located at Trofarth, on the eastern uplands across from the Conwy Valley, in North Wales. Our elevation is 273 mts, with far reaching views in most directions.

The area is rural and welsh in character. Farming shapes the characteristics of the landscape with open farmland, hedgerows, and woodland, some of this being coniferous plantations, and some deciduous in nature. The Arfon Dulas is fed by this upland area, as it then meanders through the Dulas Valley, passing Dawn, Dolwen, and Rhyd y Foel, before entering the sea at Llanddulas.

To the west across the Conwy Valley lays the Carneddau mountain range, part of the Snowdonia National Park. The Carneddau consists of the largest group of hills in Snowdonia. This upland area consists of high moorland and broad grassy ridges. It contains seven summits over 3000ft, the highest being Carnedd Llywelyn at 3484ft.

The coastal area of North Wales is situated to the north including the historic town of Conwy.

The Clwydian Hills feature in the eastern landscape. These consist of a chain of hills some 22 miles long, and form part of Offa’s Dyke. The landscape is a mix of moorland, limestone crags, woodland and farmland. In 1985 this area was designated an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

To the south is the high moorland of Denbighshire, the Denbigh Moors (Mynydd Hiraethog). The central and western areas consist of one of the largest surviving upland heather moorland areas in Wales..
