We stayed with a group of 12 in Bryn Llys, self-catered. Very nice house, very private despite being next to the owners house. All done to a hotel - like standard. Good location for Snowdonia. The owners were very friendly. The way the bedrooms are all separate with en-suites makes it very good for large groups. Bethesda village needs to... More

If there was ever a place that ticked all the boxes, it would be the Joys of Life Country Park! Wendy's warm welcome, hospitality and quality of the accommodation surpassed all my expectations. All the family and friends were suitably impressed, which made my job so much easier. The ambience of the communal rooms for eating and relaxing were an... More

Beautifully finished. Table tennis... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our child and dog friendly stay. The facilities were excellent and all rooms beautifully presented. Great location for Snowdon and the communal rooms were perfect for our large family get-together. I would stay there again.

We were very impressed with the facilities and location of Joys of Life. As we were staying self catered, we were very impressed by the range of cooking utensils, the availability of a table tennis room (which one of our company was very happy with) and the homeliness of the whole place. In particular, for walking, the fact that there... More

Stayed with a group of friends and used Bryn Llys as a base for walking. The accommodation was very close to Ogwen Cottage and an ideal base. The accommodation was very clean and had excellent facilities and we would definitely use it again. The website does not do the place justice.

We stayed here recently for one night on the last leg of our holiday in England and Wales. We chose it because it is located in such a scenic area of Snowdonia (and we had spent the week in Premier Inns and Holiday Inns) but mainly due to the fact that table tennis was listed as one of the activities...
