Award Winning Eco Guest House, Betws-y-Coed, Snowdonia

At Bryn Bella Guest House we care passionately about the environment. Listed as one of the 30 coolest B&Bs in Britain in March 2010, by the Times, Bryn Bella is an eco-lover’s dream. Our eco-friendly credentials include:

  • electricity from renewable sources
  • water heated by solar energy
  • actively recycle wherever possible
  • home grown fruit and vegetables
  • eggs from our chickens
  • free electric car charging point for our guests

Bryn Bella was the first hotel in North Wales to receive the prestigious Gold Award from the Green Business Tourism Scheme, and was named “Most Sustainable B&B” in the Green Snowdonia Tourism Awards.

Since then we have continued to improve our credentials by reducing our carbon footprint, a fact recognised in the Carbon Foot Print awards of 2011. In 2012 we became the first guest house in Snowdonia to install electric car charging points as part of Zero Net – the UK's only unrestricted national electric car charging network. In 2012 we were awarded Free2Network Green Business of the Year, and in 2013 we were awarded the Green Tourism Business of the Year by the Conwy Valley Rural Business Partnership.

We are keen to promote sustainable transport and concepts such as car-free tourism where possible and have devised a number of routes both for guests to arrive at Bryn Bella and for them to enjoy the area using the Sherpa bus service or the many other local buses and trains. For those wishing to explore the region by bike these can be hired locally.

For those travelling by public transport, check out the Journey Planner on the Find Us page to see how easy it can be to travel to Bryn Bella. Collection can be arranged from Betws-y-Coed train station with prior notification. We also have a guide to seeing Snowdonia Without a Car for once you are here.

Our gardens support a variety of wild life, a combination of mature trees, wild areas as well as flowerbeds and shrubs making up an eco-system helping to attract insects, butterflies, birds and mammals. See our garden page for more information
