Located 2.5 miles east of the picture-book village of Betws-y-Coed and to the north east of Capel Garmon, Nebo offers stunning views of the Snowdonia Mountains, allowing for enjoyable walks and bike rides to many of the beauty spots that the surrounding National Park has to offer.
Walks, Cycle Trails and Other Activities
Located on the upper slopes of the beautiful Conwy Valley, there are many delightful walks with fabulous views of the Conwy Valley and the mountains of Snowdonia beyond. Sports enthusiasts will appreciate the Gwydyr Forest Mountain Bike Trails located above the west bank of the Conwy River.
The river Conwy itself is popular with canoeists and kayak enthusiasts alike - whether its the calmer waters of the lower Conwy for beginners or the turbulent waters of the upper falls for the experienced thrill seekers.
History buffs will appreciate the Capel Garmon Burial Chamber, one of Wales' and indeed Britain's most important ancient monuments. It is just a short trip to several of Wales' medieval castles, including Dolwyddelan Castle and the World Heritage Site of Conwy Castle and medieval Walled Town.
The village is a short distance from the National Trust gardens of Bodnant. Bodnant Garden is one of the most beautiful gardens in the UK, spanning some 80 acres and is situated above the Conwy river on ground sloping towards the west and looking across the valley towards the Snowdonia range.
Across the valley is the popular inland resort of Betws y Coed and its abundance of pleasant riverside walks and mountain trails.
Nebo Chapel was built through the efforts of John Jones and the local people in the year 1813.
