The history of Bryn Llys dates back to mid 1800’s when this collection of buildings would have been the farm to the near by manor house of Bryn Derwen. At that time the buildings would have comprised of farmhouse, barns, livestock stables, mill and a smithy. Combined with the associated land the farm would have been totally self-sufficient providing food for the residents of the nearby manor house.
Over the years the site has developed and today Bryn Llys is the perfect location for holidays, friends & family gatherings, events and exploring Snowdonia, North Wales and Anglesey. The recently converted buildings offer a range of self-catering accommodation options for everyone from individuals and couples to large groups. With the addition of a small secluded caravan and motorhome park, Bryn Llys offers a wide range of accommodation options with enough space for everyone.
Driving in through the main gates you will be treated to views across the meadow, woodland and beyond to the mountains. You may even have to pause at the level crossing of our miniature garden railway as you approach the old Dutch barn – a focal point and great place for events. Once you have settled in there is more to explore with hidden gardens to find, tree lined walkways around the lake and we have plenty of stop off points for you to sit and enjoy the views and wildlife including a bird hide overlooking the main lake.
