We are planning to drive from Cardiff to Conwy and I've looked at routes on google maps. If we go in one day it looks like taking A470 would be the most scenic. If we want to stop over night, does it make more sense to drive to Aberystwyth (that route seems to go west towards Swansea and then north)? Or are there some other, better ideas so that our drive will be as scenic as possible?
Our plan was to leave in the morning so that the next day we could be in North Wales by, at the latest, mid-day. We want to see the castles and spend a night (or 2) in Conwy and then head southeast to London.
We are from Alaska, so rural roads in bad weather are no problem for us.
