Deganwy sits on the banks of the River Conwy, in Conwy County, North Wales. The village sits in a perfect location between the seaside holiday resort of Llandudno, and the ancient walled town of Conwy. To this day Conwy Castle and walled town dominate the view from Deganwy. The Castle and the estuary with the backdrop of the foothills of Snowdonia offer fantastic views. Deganwy beach is a part of this beautiful landscape and being one of the few southwesterly facing beaches on the North Wales coast is appreciated as a suntrap.

Maelgwn Gwynedd or Maelgwyn the King of Gwynedd, one of the most powerful of the Kings of Britain in the 6th Century, had some of the earliest fortifications on the Vardre but little remains of his stronghold. ....
