Message from James and Isoline Greenhalgh, Gilfach, Rowen.
Dear Peter,

Thank you for your great support [at our Open Garden day on Sunday 2nd May] as always. We were incredibly lucky with the weather – today I picked up 24 heads of the China Pink tulips – out of 50 in the border nearest to the house!
Entry money on line made £259 for the National Gardens Scheme ( which goes to Nursing Charities ) and the wonderful sum of £550 given by visitors to the garden yesterday – is going to Christian Aid.
James and I would like to thank everyone who came to Gilfach yesterday for helping us to raise this amount. It was also a very happy time for us seeing so many friends again.
All good wishes and thanks.

James and Isoline, Gilfach.

Welcome to Rowen walking


Would you like to contribute information for the Rowen website?
We’d love to hear from you, with old pictures, favourite walks, local history, wildlife, tales from Rowen etc.


The village of Rowen in Snowdonia National Park is a great place to live, and to make your permanent full-time home.  You can be part of it.
Rowen  has an active and welcoming community, and there’s Welsh singing in the Ty Gwyn Hotel on Friday evenings (under normal circumstances). We’re just five miles from Conwy.
We have a useful bus service and good schools and shops nearby.
Rowen is a popular place to work from home with superfast broadband and train services from Llandudno Junction, direct to London and Manchester.
Rowen is sheltered by the mountains and close to the sea, with a pleasant climate and lovely gardens. It’s great for hill walking all the year round, coastal walks, gardening, local history, bird watching and horse riding, and good access to water sports.
This is our home.  We’re in a good place. We love living here and we hope you will too!

Croeso i Rowen

Adnabyddir Rowen fel un o bentrefi harddaf yn Nyffryn Conwy ac yn fan cychwyn poblogaidd i deithiau cerdded ar fryniau a mynyddoedd yr ardal. Mae hefyd yn fan delfrydol i fyw ynddo.

Lleolwyd Rowen yng nghysgod y mynyddoedd oddi mewn i Barc Cenedlaethol Eryri ac o fewn cyrraedd agos i’r arfordir. Mae hinsawdd hyfryd yma, gyda nifer o erddi prydferth a digonedd o lwybrau cerdded gwych.

Pob dwy flynedd, bydd Diwrnod Gerddi Agored Rowen yn denu dros 900 o ymwelwyr i’r gerddi agored.

Mae’r gymuned yn Rowen yn un fywiog a chroesawgar dros ben ac fe glywir canu Cymraeg yn nhafarn Y Tŷ Gwyn pob nos Wener. Mae Rowen yn agos at dref Conwy a Llandudno ac mae dewis da o ysgolion a siopau gerllaw. Byddwch wrth eich bodd yma!

Gobeithio y byddwch yn hoffi’r wefan gymunedol a byddwn yn falch o dderbyn eich sylwadau.
