Marl Hall Woods is a short yet steep walk with spectacular views over Conwy estuary and castle so it’s worth making the effort to go to the lookout point (take your camera and picnic).  We always park at the small car park on Marl Lane so it is straight from the car to the woodland with no worry of traffic and there are a variety of paths through the woodland if you don’t wish to make your way up to the view.  If you’re in a rush you could do the circular route in 30 minutes though you would miss lots to look at.

Bert loves the wild garlic here.

How to get there

Marl Hall Woods are located at the edge of Llandudno Junction on the eastern side of the Conwy estuary, opposite the medieval town of Conwy. Exiting the A55 North Wales expressway at junction 19, take the A470 northwards towards Llandudno. Follow for just over 1.5km and on reaching the next roundabout, turn right into Narrow Lane and continue for 100m before bearing left into Marl Lane. After a further 150m the entrance to the wood’s car park will be seen on the right.
