Keeping traditions alive in the Conwy Valley, North Wales. At the new Bodnant Craft Centre, visitors can see a wide selection of traditionally made, local crafts under one roof. From needle felt to watercolours, from silver jewellery to ceramics. Bodnant crafters have been chosen for their art and craft skills and the majority use only locally sourced materials.

Bodnant Craft Centre is located right next door to Bodnant Garden National Trust. There is no fee to enter the craft centre.

Open 7-days-a-week, all year round.

There is ample free parking, disabled access, refreshments and a children's play area on site.

On your way into the gardens itself, it's worth stopping here for some unique gifts. Several local artists, photographers, potters, jewellers and the like have a presence here and there is always something of interest and we have bought a number of things here over the years. Recommend.

We had travelled especially to see this centre,but on arrival it was closed.We travelled on to another place and returned at 10am.The place was still closed.A café was just in the process of opening,so we had a drink.After an half hour ,we left.Im afraid if you want the visitor,you need to open at a decent hour.

A wide variety of high-quality goods to chose from, all displayed in an attractive way. Unfortunately, the baby decided to howl the place down, otherwise I could easily have spent much longer and bought more stuff!

Craft centre is a very loosely used phrase discription, as there wasn't any crafts made from what we could see on site. Saying that nice local art and jewellery

A good selection of arts and crafts but a little over priced for some things, the plants in the garden centre section looked good although we didn't buy anything. The staff were really friendly and welcoming. There is a charge to go around the gardens and if you are of limited mobility there are a lot of ups and downs... More

We thoroughly enjoyed exploring the foods on offer in the farm shop, and learning about bees and honey at the shop. We considered eating in the teashop, but in the end had a superb meal for two at under £20 each, including drinks, up in the half-empty restaurant.

Lovely set up with lots of local produce available. Eco friendly design and use of rain water for cloakroom facilities. Courtyard area with tea rooms on one side, with a wine store, produce and crafts on the other. Built on the side of a hill which means there are slopes from the car park to negotiate. The disabled parking is... More
