Whilst we didn't stay we are sure you'll get a very warm welcome here. By prior arrangement we charged our Nissan Leaf whilst going to find the new series of geocaches nearby. The host was even kind enough to join our journey as our own personal guide. Good energy in every way!

What a wonderful stay this was for the 10 of us that trickled in groups one by one in our convoy to the Bryn Elltyd Eco Guest House. Welcomed in by homemade cakes accompanied with teas and coffees before settling ourselves in for the weekend. Both John and Ceilia were lovely enough to let us have free reign for the... More

We had a wonderful stay with John and Ceilia at their eco retreat in the mountains. The location is central to cycling, walking and adventure hot spots with plenty to do right at their doorstep as well. John is very knowledgeable about the area and gives great itinerary suggestions. The accommodation is comfortable and charming and the cooked breakfast, fresh... More

Wonderful welcome of tea and homemade cake. Room spacious and comfortable. Lovely garden, with birds and ducks, and view of the Ffestiniog steam railway and mountain river. Breakfast freshly cooked and ingredients sourced locally.Service and local knowledge good. This break was of particular interest to us because we shared the eco philosophy and this gave us the opportunity to exchange... More

John and Ceilia were extremely hospitable from the moment we arrived. The room and the common areas are quite basic, but the entire house is warmly decorated and had everything which we needed to feel at home. Location is very convenient to get to everything including the nearby mines (zip world) and hiking trails (which we will be back for).... More

We popped in for a one night stay to this lovely and quirky B&B. The owners were really friendly, John showed us around the property and it's Eco-friendly features also the gardens.

The rooms are quite large, and pleasant. The situation of the B&B is great for nature-walkers, those interested in the industrial past, and train-enthusiasts. Table-tops, chairs, and stair-rails feel a little sticky - though the bed linen was fresh and fragrant (just needed a little sweep away of tiny grit - probably from the eco-boiler - so acceptable).
