Bryn Afon is an elegant Victorian house situated on the banks of the river Llugwy. We have spectacular views of the River Llugwy and the 500 year old stone Pont-y-Pair bridge where the salmon leap in late Autumn. With forest walks starting from our doorstep and with some of the finest restaurants in Betws y Coed and North Wales just 1 minute's walk away, this really is the perfect base for touring the Snowdonia National Park (or for staying locally to enjoy the beauty of Betws-y-Coed). We are able to assist guests with a variety of suggestions on places to visit – from gentle strolls to strenuous mountain walks, mountain bike trails, castles, slate mines, steam railways, gardens, lakes etc, to shopping or eating locally or finding the best local cake and coffee shop. Bryn Afon is easily accessible by public transport; Betws-y-Coed train station and the bus 'station' - both connecting to LLandudno Junction. The Snowdonia Sherpa Bus enables you explore the area and we also have parking in our own guest car park, plus a secure shed to lock up bikes.

My husband and I visited Wales in October 2018 and without any firm accommodation plans, found ourselves in Betws-y-Coed one late afternoon. Bryn Afon was an easy find, situated in the middle of the village and the home itself was exactly what we needed, a home from home with

I travelled to Wales to go on a walking weekend. It was my first weekend away on my own so a bit apprehensive, but could not have had a warmer welcome. The location was great, right in the village centre with shops & pubs close by. I had a compact double which was fine just for

"View of the bridge and River from the top floor is good"
"Really enjoyed the room view over the bridge. A bit of a small bathroom, but it was a trade off I was willing to make for the view! Rm 3."
