Powered entirely by renewable energy, Bryn Elltyd is one of the first B&Bs in the UK to achieve the top Platinum rating in Tripadvisor’s Greenleaders programme. The kids will love the turf-covered Hobbit room in the garden and the Ffestiniog steam railway runs around the edge of the grounds.
Bryn Elltyd is at the foot of the Moelwyn mountains, so there are easy rambles from your doorstep. If you’re up for more of an adventure, owner John Whitehead is a qualified mountaineer and canoe/kayak coach, and can advise on where to go. There’s lockable storage for bikes, caving gear and canoes.
