Rowen in the Conwy Valley is well-known as one of the prettiest villages in north Wales, and a popular starting point for a day in the hills. It’s also a great place to live!
Rowen is in the Snowdonia National Park, close to the coast and sheltered by the mountains. It has a nice climate, some lovely gardens, and plenty of good walks.
Rowen Village Gardens Open Day every two years attracts large crowds of visitors.
