The Valentine, steeped in local history, is a medium sized end of terrace, nestled in the heart of Llanddulas, a semi-rural seaside village in Conwy county borough, Wales, midway between Old Colwyn and Abergele. Next to the North Wales Expressway in the community of Llanddulas and Rhyd-y-Foel  – this is an upmarket village area which has a mass of cottages and houses with an average selling price of £236,960. The Valentine holds a prominent position in the village, being on the main route to Gwrych Castle, home of “I’m a celebrity get me out of here” for the past two years and opposite St Cynbryd’s Church.

Surrounded by high quality static caravan parks, which attract a year round trade that peaks in the summer months, the Valentine also enjoys a solid trade from B&B and Hotels housing visitors to the incredibly popular area. The Valentine or the “Val” as it is fondly known as by the villagers is probably the best pub in the area and is the epitome of a top quality local on your doorstep.
