special places near tao centre colwyn

beautiful countryside

a favourite place to chill out is green valley, a 20 minute drive away

A most enjoyable walk up a green mountain valley, we scramble up the river from rock to rock,
enjoying the sounds and textures and colours, the dragonflies, the butterflies.
It's a secret valley, I visit often and never see any one there.
It's hands on, a place to lose your self in play, truly being in the moment in nature.
