Hello, being city dwellers we don't get to see much of the stars. We are staying in Betws y Coed for a few nights soon and hopeful that if we get a clear night we could see some beautiful stars.

Is there a particular place within the area to see the best night sky?

I would head out of Betws on the A5 to Pentrefoleas then take the A543 towards Denbigh

You will find yourself in high open ground in a wide open space after about 25 minutes drive

It’s a very scenic drive during day time too especially coming from Denbigh

Check it out during the day to find a suitable parking place

On second thoughts coming from Liverpool to Betws why not forget about using the A55 ( boring ) and approach Betws via Mold and Denbigh and Pentrefoleas

A great drive if you are not in a hurry
