Local ‘Lock-down’ Walks

The lock down has provided us with great opportunity to explore some of the local footpaths and walks around Bryn Llys as part of our daily exercise allowance. Living in such a beautiful area with access to so many great places its can be easy to take for granted the amazing walks and scenery on our doorstep. Even after living here for over 25 years we have found some new walks right from our front gate.


Gardening during lockdown

The lockdown has presented us with an opportunity to tackle parts of the garden we didn’t think we would have time for this year, or even next year! Having recently moved in and taken on the business, the 10 acres of gardens, woodland and lake presented an intimidating proposition. Even more so given our lack of land management experience, but, everyone has to start somewhere and its always great to be learning new skills and knowledge.


Welcome to our new website!

We are excited to launch our new website which is designed to make it easier for you to find the information you need and to easily book your stay with us.  In particular, we hope you like the feel of the design which is specifically intended to be simple to navigate and to help show off everything we and the local area has to offer. Additionally, the site is now compatible with the latest tablets and smart phones to allow you to keep in touch while on the move.
