Colwyn Bay Nant-y-Glyn Valley Walk

To walk the Nant y Glyn Valley leave the Bryn Holcombe Hotel and bear right (east) along the Conway Road for approximately 1 mile. Take the steps opposite the Eirias Park gates and follow the path to Glyn Farm. From here it is a beautiful pastoral scene, ten minutes from the center of town yet it is unknown to many locals. The walk will take you through bluebell woods and open pasture land before reaching the “Cathedral of the hills”, Bryn y Maen Church, in the peaceful village of the same name high above the Bay of Colwyn. The walk returns down the west side of Nant y Glyn Valley with an option to take the path at Foxhill to Upper Colwyn Bay and return to the hotel via the Pwllychrochan Woods.
