Latest reviews | Events in Bethesda | 10 Places to Stay

The North Wales town of Bethesda sits astride the A5 that links Bangor and Betws-y-Coed, much of it built on steeply sloping streets that presage the Carneddau Mountains forming a scenic backdrop to the east. Named for one of the revivalist chapels that still dot the townscape, Bethesda was built on and (in part) of slate, though nature provided stone for building here too. The local slate was considered of particularly high quality, its blue-green sheen so prized that it was exported worldwide via Bangor. When quarrying was at its height the population of the town was more than twice today’s figure of roughly 4,000, but some of the amenities from that period remain – it can claim 10 pubs for example. This is very much Welsh Wales, with three in four of the population speaking the language. Visitors are drawn to the area because of the easy access to Snowdonia, with Anglesey also only a short drive away west along the dualled A55, and the resorts of Conwy and Llandudno about 30 minutes away in the opposite direction. But there is no need to venture far to enjoy some fantastic scenery - the Nant Ffrancon Valley, at whose foot Bethesda stands, provides beautiful landscapes and good walking on the town’s doorstep.
