We've just got back from our stay at the Joy of Life accommodation and had a fantastic time. The accommodation was perfect for our large group, the kitchen was clean and had everything we could possibly need. The large living room was lovely and cosy with plenty of seating. The rooms were great too with each one en-suite. The grounds... More

I needed to find somewhere to house 14 people to help celebrate (commiserate) my 40th Birthday when I stumbled on Joys of Life. I booked it with some amount of trepidation as you never really know what you're getting when you can sleep 14 people. Within seconds of arriving I realised I didn't need to worry. The grounds were immaculate,... More

Set in peaceful surroundings this is an idyllic place to stay, like other reviewers wished we could have stayed longer. From the welcome we received to our departure everything was first rate. If you're looking for somewhere peaceful to stay whilst exploring the area look no further

We had such a lovely stay here, we wished it had been longer than one night. Great excuse to come back! Room was clean and well equipped. Best shower pressure and most comfortable bed we had on our 10 day journey around the UK. Our 2 boys loved the miniature train rides. The breakfast was just what you'd hope for... More

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.
