I came across Tan Dinas during my research on TA, I am a wee bit cynical so I wondered at all the fantastic reviews and thought to myself surely it can't be that good. Well I am hear to tell you that yes Tan Dinas is that good, and John & Eileen are wonderful hosts. Husband and I stayed for 3 nights before we headed over to Ireland and were truly impressed. This is one of the best B & B's we stayed in during our 27 day tour around UK & Ireland.
The location was great being about a 8-10 minute walk (if you go direct) from Betwys or slightly longer if you choose to you via the "scenic" walk over the miners bridge. Either way the walk is not onerous. Tan Dinas is also only 10 minutes walk from Swallow's Falls.
Our room was at the front of the house with such pretty views of the surrounding area and also the lovely garden. The room was spacious, spotless and tastefully furnished and the bathroom was beautifully presented. This was one of the few B & B's we stayed in that had a fridge in the room, there was even fresh milk, none of that UHT rubbish.
The sitting area just outside our room held a range of local information and Eileen was only too pleased to provide us with insights into what to do and see. We visited Beddgelert at her suggestion and were really pleased that we did, in fact our days were planned around Eileen's suggestions
Breakfast was suberb, the dining room had lovely views and had a nice cosy & homely atmosphere. I am a vegetarian and sometimes that can be problematic, but nothing was too much trouble for Eileen & John.
There was no shortage of car parking and the gardens were lovely. If we are lucky enough to visit North Wales again we would defiinitely stay at Tan Dinas.
Greetings from Australin John & Eileen!!!
Just a tip - head to the Trefwif woollen factory not far from Betws - just fantasic to things still being done the traditional way - they have a great supply of leather gloves at very reasonable prices.
