The caravan park in question was not called Pendyffryn because i owned a caravan on that site for many years until recently and it is not facing Conwy Mountain.  The caravan site mentioned by the poster was probably the one on the other side of the A55 just near the beach.  Years ago before the construction of the A55 you could actually walk onto the Conwy Mountain from that caravan site but then the A55 cut through the site and you now have to cross the A55 to gain access to the mountain. Years ago myself and parents used to camp on the site facing the mountain which has now became an upmarket park and is also expensive to own a caravan on there.

You can gain access to the Conwy Mountain via Pendyffryn Hall which is situated in Dwygyfylchi  but it entails a steep  climb up through a bank of huge conifers until you reach the top and many times we encountered grass snakes. Once at the top there are stunning views and you can then walk down into Conwy town itself.

Hi , my name is mike Dewar , my mum and dad had a caravan on this site , behind the office. Near the beach entrance, we had it from about 1973 till 1982. I had a good mate from kids grove near stoke called mike moors , his family had a caravan to. Does anyone remember us ? So many memories . Climbing the mountain , speed boating up Conway river . Just messing on the beach . Had my first crush on a girl also on that site. It's not the same now . Mountain looks deserted now , overgrown . Dad sold the caravan in 82 due to A55 planning.
