Cottages in Corwen
Corwen described as the crossroads of North Wales, is situated in the Clwydian and Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Denbighshire, North East Wales.
Corwen is located between the Welsh Borders and Snowdonia National Park, a strategic area throughout the ages with a long history and some spectacular scenery. Corwen stands on the banks of the River Dee and at the foot of the Berwyn Mountain range. It is probably most famous for its connections with Owen Glendower, the nobleman who led the Welsh in their final battle against the English for independence. A bronze statue of Glendower was erected in the town in 2007.
Corwen’s former importance as a coaching route is evident from the number of hotels and inns in the town and when the railways came, Corwen became the central point for road and rail access to the North and West coasts of Wales. As development progressed, Corwen became overlooked as a travel route and so there has been little central development since Victorian times. The town centre is a conservation area and noted for its special architectural and historical interest.
Corwen is always popular with hill walkers and there is a range of walks from the town of different gradients offering something for everyone, from the keen hill walker to those preferring a gentle stroll and a chance to take in the beautiful scenery. For the more energetic, there is a host of water sports available from canoeing through to white water rafting.
The town has lots to see and do with a variety of eating establishments promoting Welsh produce and local fare. If you fancy a barbeque then visit the Rhug Estate for one of their famous barbeque boxes; the Rhug Estate extends to 12,500 acres and has one of the largest organic farms in the United Kingdom.
