Bryn Afon

Bryn Afon is a Victorian built property. The river Llugwy runs alongside Bryn Afon and the Pont-y-Pair bridge faces the house. 

It is a two minute walk into centre of Betws-y-Coed from Bryn Afon and a five minute walk into the Gwydyr Forest.


Accessing Bryn Afon

For full details on travelling to Bryn Afon, please see the 'travel' section of our website. 

Bryn Afon is a 15 minute walk from the Betws-y-Coed train station and from the main bus stop, (which is also located near the train station). The main train hub is Llandudno Junction Station which connects to the train lines to Chester, London Euston and Holyhead.

Bryn Afon is located on the B5106 which is just off the A5. The A5 runs in the directions of Llangollen and Bangor.


Parking and bicycle storage

There is parking for six vehicles in the Bryn Afon private car park. The car park is at the rear of the building. At the top of the driveway is an initial steep slope.

In the car parking area, there is secure and undercover storage for bicycles.

The walk way to the main entrance, from the car park, is on a gentle upward slope and is slightly uneven in parts.


The house

There is a low step on entering the main front door.

The guest house is on three levels; (ground floor, 1st floor and 2nd floor). 15 stairs to the 1st floor (rooms; 1, 2, 3 & 4) and a further 14 stairs to the next level (rooms; 5 & 6).

A handrail runs alongside the stairs from the ground floor up to the final stair on the 2nd floor.

Accessible to guests on the ground floor, is the dining room and guest lounge. There are no ground floor guest bedrooms.

The main hall and landings are well lit and the lights are motion sensor.

All but one of the six guest bedrooms are en-suite with showers. (There are no guest baths in any of the guest rooms). This bedroom has its own private shower room across the landing from the bedroom. It is located two steps from the bedroom to this private shower room.

All rooms have tea/coffee making facilities, and colour TVs.

Rooms are bright and evenly lit. Overhead lighting is controlled by a switch on the wall. Bedside lamps are also in each room. Flat screen digital television with remote control and subtitles are in each guest room.

The front garden

The front garden which overlooks the river is for guests use. It is accessed via the front door. Tables and chairs are available.



The style and design of the house makes it unsuitable for dogs or any other pets to stay in guest bedrooms, so we do not take dogs (or other pets).

However, assistance dogs are welcome.



We offer guests free Wi-Fi usage.

At the time of writing this, mobile phone network connectivity is available throughout the guest house.



We have two friendly dogs who are kept away from all guest areas at all times. However, that does mean that Bryn Afon is unsuitable for those with an allergy to dogs.

We prepare food in a kitchen where nuts have been present, so guests with nut allergies please be aware.

All the bedding is synthetic microfibres and not feathers.



Where possible, locally sourced produce is supplied for breakfast and the beverage trays. We happily cater for varying dietary requirements if advised in advance.

We are able to cater for those with gluten intolerance or with a less severe gluten allergy. However, this must be indicated at the time of booking.

The breakfast menu can be provided in large print.
