I reviewed Bryn Elltyd in 2014 and have just returned from another visit/s. I like the Eco friendly aspect of the B&B and everything is great from the rooms to the breakfast, views, and friendly hosts. If you have an electric car - there are charge points there for that ! Breakfast is huge & I'm pretty sure you could...

My family & I really love staying at Bryn Elltyd, where Celia & John Whitehead are wonderful hosts. The Guest House is always warm & cosy, the shower water always hot, breakfasts including home-made bread always excellent. The bedrooms are comfortable, & all enjoy really dramatic views This is the perfect centre for exploring the fascinating remains of the Slate...

This guest house is in a spectacular location and is run by people who are fascinating to talk to and who run a very comfortable and efficient b&b. the breakfast is also very good. The ecological aspect adds an extra dimension which is very informative, and the price is in the lowest orange (£45 for me for the night)

It feels hard to give only a 2 for this guest house but there is some I feel is vital that attention is given to. This is the horendous smell of damp/mould/ mildew in our outside room. It was very strong, worst near the corner of the bedroom where I slept so much so that it woke me a few...

We received a warm welcome from John and Ceilia and enjoyed our stay in this stunning part of North Wales. The property is ideally situated for a large variety of outdoor activities including walks, bike rides, etc. with zip lines and other high adrenaline activities just north of Blaenau Ffestiniog (walkable). The breakfast was superb with vegetarians well catered for....

Great location - it's actually by a power station but don't let that put you off - it's a hydro one and not visible from the house. Loved the views and it has an amazing garden on a hillside where you can just sit, drink wine and look at the views and the nearby steam train. John and Celia couldn't...

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...

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...
