If you have a bit of a sweet tooth, then you should definitely think about paying Riverside a visit. The Riverside Chocolate House and Tea Room is found at Pentrefoelas a few miles from Betws y Coed,
The chocolate on offer at Riverside is all made by hand, so choose a couple to sample while you have a tea, coffee or – perhaps more appropriately – a mug of hot chocolate.
You can also get a selection of their luxury chocolates to take away with you. Nestled in a lovely gift box, they make for a nice present for any chocoholic in your life.
As well as chocolates, Riverside also stocks a great deal of confectionary and biscuits, all of which are made locally in Wales. And if you have a taste for something a little more exotic, there is in addition a selection of the finest in continental chocolates. Stepping away from the edibles, Riverside also offers a wide range of gifts, clocks, ceramics and artworks.
And if that still hasn’t satisfied your sweet tooth, why not take part in one of their chocolate tasting evenings?
The Riverside Chocolate House is found close to Pentrefoelas just off the A5. There is parking available nearby.

Conwy Castle is easily the most spectacular of all the castles in North Wales (and cost the most to build, too!). The castle was built for Edward I by Master James of St George, and is one of the most impressive surviving medieval fortifications in Britain.
The most popular inland resort in North Wales, partly due to its convenience as a location but mostly thanks to its beauty and splendour. A lot of the village dates back to the Victorians, and their influence still abounds in the buildings. Surrounded by the dense forestry and imposing mountains of the region, Betws-y-Coed feels pleasantly out of the way.
Established all the way back in 1927, just five miles from Porthmadog in the village of Criccieth, Cadwaladers has been an incredibly popular ice cream stop for almost ninety years now. Their ice cream cafés and coffee shops have been slowly taking over the rest of the United Kingdom, but for a taste of the original and the best, you have to make your way down to Porthmadog.
A great location to holiday on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park where 3 rivers meet and join together. Surrounded by tree covered mountains there is an alpine feel to this town. The main street is full of outdoor and climbing shops, testament to the its popularity with walkers, mountaineers and cyclists. A beautiful location and convenient to explore Snowdonia and the Conwy Valley.
