Bryn Eglwys House Information


Marking the spot where the rivers Colwyn and Glaslyn meet, Ty Afon is the ultimate Welsh country house retreat from which you will return energised and inspired. Nestled in lands of myth and legend, it’s a stone’s throw from the village centre of Beddgelert, known around the globe for its fascinating folklore and unmatched hiking terrain. Stay Beautiful and serene, our super king, king, double, family and twin rooms bring the natural beauty of the great outdoors in, with sustainably-sourced essentials and little luxuries ensuring a comfortable and conscious experience. Parking. The house offers ample free car parking within the private grounds. Breakfast Served daily in our spacious, sun-drenched dining area, our breakfast is guaranteed to fuel your days’ adventures. Guests can choose between continental and cooked options, ranging between delicious pastries through to locally-sourced sausages and free-range eggs. A Continental breakfast is included in the room price. Freshly made cooked breakfasts are available to order for a small cost and if you require an earlier breakfast, a room breakfast can be arranged to be left the evening before. Food & Drink Dining at Ty Afon is a relaxed affair. Operating on the belief that food should be savoured slowly and socially with a glass of something good, each offering is designed to nourish both the body and soul. Think carefully composed grazing boards, charcuterie platters with tempting Welsh cheeses and warming chowder with crusty cob. And in a nod to Neapolitan cuisine, stoned baked pizza’s that feature only the best organic ingredients. Please enquire to prebook. Or take a short stroll into one of the village pubs, bistro’s or café’s for a wide selection of food and drink. Afternoon Tea Treat yourself and a loved one to a luxury afternoon tea in the heart of Snowdonia. An indulgent affair of cakes, sandwiches and scones. Please enquire to pre book.
