The family-friendly hotels in Colwyn Bay are mostly in Rhos-on-Sea, slightly higher up the bay, and this is a good choice for a holiday with the kids as it’s where you’ll find most of the cafes, bars and bistros, with a relaxed beachside vibe. Stay in a family hotel here and you’re still close to the main shops, water sports and key attractions like Eirias Park and the Welsh Mountain Zoo.
For rainy days or a change of scene from outdoor activities why not have a browse in the local shops? There are plenty of independent traders in Old Colwyn, an indoor market in the main shopping areas and the region’s largest mall, Bayview Shopping Centre, has a good selection too. Pick up a gift to take home in one of the art or vintage shops in town. If you get peckish grab a snack from the local farmers’ market and enjoy it on the prom.
There’s plenty to do here to keep all the family entertained. A new beachfront and promenade means the beach is sandier and wider than ever. Hunt for tadpoles, catch a crab, walk the dog or build a sandcastle - simple pleasures make little people happy. You can also play ball games on the beach, enjoy donkey rides and there’s a cycle path running along the prom to Rhos-on-Sea.
Eirias Park in the middle of town is a great place to go whatever the weather. If it’s fine enjoy the outdoor walks, tennis courts, boating lake and picnic spots. If it’s raining there’s Colwyn Leisure Centre which has a 25-metre swimming pool, water slides, fun stuff plus a fitness suite, sauna and spa for mum and dad. Something for everyone and reasonably priced too.
The Welsh Mountain Zoo is high up above the bay with fantastic views over town and the bay. Enjoy the beautiful gardens and learn more about endangered animals and how they are cared for. Adopt an animal and enjoy a chimp encounter! There’s something here to break up tensions and squabbles and animal antics put everyone in a good mood.
If you hire a car there are plenty of local attractions within a day’s drive. Explore local castles like Rhuddlan Castle in Rhyl, an “iron ring” fortress that was built by the English King Edward I. There’s also Caernarfon Castle and the atmospheric Conwy Castle so plenty of local heritage to explore. Bodelwyddan Castle in Rhyl is packed with family activities and houses collections from three national museums. Do a treasure hunt in the garden, play with Victorian games and do an interactive exhibit to learn more about the region’s history.
For a truly spectacular ride that the kids will remember for years to come, take them to Llandudno Cable Car and enjoy a ride from Happy Valley to the top of Great Orme (679 feet). You’ll enjoy fabulous views over Llandudno, Little Orme, Anglesey, Snowdonia and beyond. It is the longest passenger cable car in the UK and at the summit there’s a cafe where you can relax, put your feet up and enjoy the inspiring views.
There are many family-friendly hotels in Colwyn Bay from beachside pads with leisure facilities to Victorian villas in the centre of town and self-catering apartments. It’s the ideal resort for a family holiday with plenty to see and do.
