Trefriw is a village in the foothills of Snowdonia, situated on the banks of the Crafnant River, and the ideal place to stay for visitors to Snowdonia, who wish to avoid the crowds and commercialism of perhaps better known resorts and enjoy the simple pleasures of the glorious countryside while exploring this fascinating corner of Britain. There are a number of attractions in and around Trefriw including some great walks, the Trefriw Woollen Mill which is a working woollen mill and craft shop. The Fairy Falls is a hidden waterfall on the River Crafnant, just a short walk up the hill behind the village stores. It is gentle and sparkling in drier weather, but can soon turn into a raging torrent in heavy rain!
Trefriw Woollen Mills has a café for visitors’ refreshment, and along the main street of the village are two pubs serving meals, a general store/newsagents/café, and also a hotel with a bistro.
