Corwen is one of a handful of picturesque, traditional towns in the Denbighshire region of North Wales. It sits at the base of the Berwyn Mountains alongside the banks of the River Dee in the Dee Valley and is a great location for exploring the border areas, north Wales and Snowdonia to the west.
Corwen is known as the Crossroad of North Wales, as 5 rivers merge nearby. The Dee Valley is packed full of excellent walking trails, including the Dee Valley Way which links Corwen to Llangollen, rich pastureland, surrounded by rugged heather clad moors and mountains, quaint country pubs and beauty spots are everywhere you go.
The town is a traditional rural country town, with pretty stone buildings and a number of handy shops, tea rooms and places to eat. Corwen has strong historical links to the great Welshman Owain Gwynedd, and an impressive bronze statue of the man stands tall in the centre of town.
