Where to stay ?

Planning a trip in late March with 5 days in Wales...would like to stay in one area in Northern Wales but not in LLandudno, looks rather large...prefer a smaller town with some good places to eat and easy access to places to see and maybe some easier walking and biking areas...we will have a car and don't mind driving a bit...any suggestions...also noticed there are quite a lot of castles around Wales, what are the two best to see in Northern Wales (if any)...thanks!

How about Conwy? - interesting walled city and fantastic castle (I'm planning to go and stay there in the future). Or in Snowdonia itself - Betws-y-Coed - shouldn't be too touristy in March.

anywhere along the A55 road which runs along the coast of north Wales would be good for getting out and about,. maybe Penmaen-mawr or Llanfairfechan .... however the smaller the place the less options for eating out there will be ... if you go inland there's places like Betwys-y-Coed (which is heaving with tourists in high season but should be quiet in March)

are you looking at a hotel or self-catering ... in high season self catering cottages will likely be only bookable by the week, but in March I dare say you could get a place for 5 nights

yes, there are plenty of castles !! ... Conwy and Caernarfon are both stunning but there are plenty of others
