Elwy Valley

River Cottage lies in the Elwy Valley, home to the Bontnewydd Cave, sometimes known as Pontnewydd Cave. This is a limestone which was excavated in 1872 and 1978, and the site produced the oldest dated hominid remains in Wales which comprised of Neanderthal bone fragments of dating from c.225,000 years ago. Animal remains and contemporary tools were also found.

North Wales


North Wales is home to many of our largest national Parks, which were created to protect the most beautiful and imposing landscapes in the United Kingdom. When it comes to attractions, North Wales offers something to suit all the family, zoos, castles, stately homes, lively family parks, art galleries, craft centres, museums, steam trains, leisure centres, cultural festivals and agricultural shows and family fun days. You can potter around charming towns and villages, explore our rugged coastline, feel soft sand between your toes, or have some family fun at the many events taking place all year round. Whatever the weather, there is something for everyone. To the West of Wales lies Snowdonia, a magnet for climbers and walkers and on the Llyn Peninsula you will find some of the best sailing and surfing beaches in North Wales. To the North lies the Isle of Anglesey which is surrounded by 125 miles of coastline and a host of historical sites, whilst the North Wales Borderlands is dominated by the spectacular Clwydian hills and interesting market towns on Chester's doorstep.
