Swallow Falls

swallow falls.jpg
Next to the A5 road between Capel Curig and Betws-y-Coed the Llugwy river hurls itself into a spectacular chasm in a place known as Swallow Falls. Best viewed after heavy rain the river rushes down from the mountains through tree-hung, rocky chasms. Jagged rocks and crags divide the stream into a number of foaming cascades which tumble headlong over boulders between richly wooded banks.

The Swallow Falls Hotel was purposely built in the 1900’s to take advantage of the local views and proximity to Swallow Falls.

Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty and combining the classic quality of a Victorian Coaching House with the informal ambience of a modern hotel, Swallow Falls Hotel affords a memorable experience to all its guests.
The location is ideal for walkers, cyclists and climbers or those who just want to sample the spectacular scenery and tranquil atmosphere of this special part of Snowdonia.
