Elwy Valley Villages in North Wales

Elwy Valley Villages in North Wales

The Llangernyw Yew Tree

Elwy Valley Villages...and More

In a nutshell. Hidden villages in the hills and moors flanking the Vale of Conwy.

The pretty villages of Llangernyw and Llanfair Talhaearn, sheltered in the valley carved by the River Elwy, are at the northern approach to the moors of Mynydd Hiraethog.

Llangernyw’s ancient yew tree is said to be 4,000 to 5,000 years old, the oldest living thing in Wales.

Sir Henry Jones Museum celebrates the life of the prominent 19th-century philosopher, academic, educationalist and advisor to Lloyd George, all within the context of displaying Victorian life in a typical small rural Welsh community.

It’s also worth seeking out Llanfair Talhaearn, an idyllic fishing and walking centre, to the south-west.

We’re not finished yet with this undiscovered little corner of North Wales.

Use your satnav or a good map and follow the maze of country lanes to places like Gwytherin in the secluded Cledwen Valley.

Its church, dedicated to St Winefride, stands in the middle of a prehistoric stone circle.

Literary tradition is strong is these parts, no more so than at Llansannan on the River Aled.

A monument in the village celebrates five important writers born here between the 15th and 19th centuries.

The lovely, steep-sided valley of the Aled leads southwards to the away-from-it-all upland lake and reservoir of Llyn Aled, its peaty moorland waters noted for good perch, pike and roach fishing.

For more information on what to see and where to go on Mynydd Hiraethog see the Villages of Hiraethog and Llyn Brenig or visit the Hiraethog website.
