Betws-y-Coed is a village in the Conwy valley in the county borough of Conwy, north-west Wales. The name Betws or Bettws is generally thought to be derived from the Anglo-Saxon Old English 'bed-hus' - a house of prayer, or oratory. Betws-y-Coed lies in the Snowdonia National Park, in a valley near the point where the River Conwy is joined by the River Llugwy and the River Lledr, and was founded around a monastery in the late sixth century.

As the swirling waters of the River Wye rage below, the noble Chepstow Castle stands in silent sentry as it has since the 13th century when medieval warlords controlled this mystical land.
