We have just returned from a very enjoyable and relaxing weekend staying at the Eco Guest House. Arriving by train from Manchester, via Lladudno, we were able to walk up to the slate mines for our pre-booked session at Bounce Below. We then walked to the guest house, taking us a little under an hour. On arrival, we were warmly... More

We visited in June for three nights and enjoyed ourselves very much. The hosts were very friendly and helpful with lots of local knowledge. The breakfasts were great. The room was clean and had what we needed. We were lucky with the weather and it was a good base for walking.

A few great days spent at this hidden gem in Snowdonia. Clean, tidy, welcoming, warm, friendly - great hosts who provide excellent food and service while running the guesthouse so it is carbon neutral. John will even take you on a guided tour, explaining all the different features. Set in front of a beautiful reservoir, with plenty of walks and... More

The Ecoguesthouse is a fabulous B&B in a great location. Surrounded by beautiful gardens to wander around or look at from the conservatory. A peaceful place to relax or a place to rest after hiking or zipping around the welsh countryside. Our hosts John and Celia were superb in advising and suggesting things to do. We enjoyed fabulous breakfasts, reading... More

Thanks for great review. It is alway a pleasure when guests appreciate the extra mile we go for the eco bits. It is not so much a business idea as a way of thought. You are more than welcome to come back sample more of our extreme sport sin the quarries or just find more tranquility in our mountains More

There was a little entrance hallway with space to leave shoes etc., a wet room, and two twin beds looking out over a gorgeous little stream and ducks. The room was homely, beds comfy, and shower powerful. The... More

Booked last minute, we were warmly welcomed on a Welsh wet day with a pot of tea and homemade cakes, served in front of a glorious fire. Our hosts John & Celia made us feel right at home, and we enjoyed returning to Bryn Elltyd to relax each evening after our day's adventures. Ideally situated for Snowdonia, Portmeirion, Zip World...
