Bryn Ffynnon is approximately 1 mile from the centre of Llanrwst and is perfectly situated for those who are seeking the best of both worlds - a combined walking and beach holiday.
Llanrwst is a traditional market town in the Conwy valley standing on the very edge of the Snowdonia National Park. It has a good range of local shops including two butchers, a baker, a greengrocer as well as a couple of small supermarkets. The town also boasts a number of pubs, restaurants and takeaways and the world-famous Tu-Hwnt-I'r Bont Tearooms for afternoon tea (a must do!)

The popular walking centre of Betws-y-Coed is approximately 5 miles away. Here the 3 tributaries join to make the River Conwy and there are easy accessible walks along its banks. Plenty of more challenging walks are also possible around the famous Swallow Falls and Fairy Glen and in the forests that surround the town.
For the walkers and mountain bikers Snowdonia is easily accessible and the cottage offers lockable storage for bicycles to keep them safe when not in use.
Bryn Ffynnon is perfect as a base for seeing a large area of North Wales and we leave a full set of local maps in the cottage for you to borrow during your stay to make planning your holiday as easy as possible.
Conwy and Llandudno are a short drive away and you can be in Anglesey in about an hour.
Harlech and Criccieth with their historic castles are within easy reach as is Caernafon. A little exploration will reveal many lesser known castles to investigate too.
For the more adventurous a visit to Blaenau Ffestiniog is called for. There you will find Zip World Titan, Bounce Below and the Zip World Caverns which are an underground playground of zip wires and trampolines.
If this is a bit too adventurous then a trip on the Ffestiniog Mountain Railway is a great way of enjoying the scenery as well as being an experience all of its own. The train can be caught at Blaenau Ffestiniog and taken all the way to the coast at Portmadoc.
Bala and Cadair Idris are a pleasant day trip and I know a few of our guests have made the effort to climb the mountain. It's a steep climb but the views are worth it and it's muc more "doable" than Snowdon ( unless you cheat of course and take the train!)
If you were a fan of the iconic TV series "The Prisoner" you won't want to miss Portmeirion where it was filmed. This is a glorious Italianate village and of course home to the famous pottery.
There are countless walks and trails in Snowdonia. If you are looking for ideas for walks/trail rides why not visit Mud and Routes for some inspiration? if you are planning on taking the trip up Snowdon then Walk up Snowdon may also be of interest.
