Betws-y-Coed misspelt 364 times by tourists seeking information

People searching for information about the Conwy village Betws-y-Coed on its tourist website typed 364 different misspellings of the name.

Website managers discovered the wrong search terms included "Betsy Cowed" to "Bwtsy Code".

Kevin Jones, who runs the website, said he had thought there may have been around 30 misspellings in a year but was "astounded" when he found so many.

"I'd like to know if any other place in the UK is as misspelt," he said.
