Bed & Breakfast

“Worthy entertainment and most cordial welcome were never found wanting at Gwydir”. Sir Roger Mostyn, 1670.


The castle is primarily a family home, though guests are warmly welcomed to share in Gwydir’s tranquil and timeless atmosphere and languish by a log fire in the historic panelled parlour, where breakfast is also served in the morning. Situated in the foot-hills of Snowdonia, three miles from Betws-y-Coed and twelve miles from the medieval walled town of Conwy, Gwydir is perfectly situated for the enjoyment of all the natural and historic wonders of North Wales.

The castle is within pleasant walking distance of the market town of Llanrwst, with convenient rail and bus connections. There are also several good restaurants and inns in the vicinity for dinner.

Be greeted by the sight of peacocks parading on the lawns and relax in the gardens with tea and shortbread on arrival.

Two rooms are available, the ‘King’s Room,’ with its en-suite bathroom, and the ‘Duke of Beaufort’s Chamber,’ with its own private bathroom adjacent. Both rooms have four-poster beds and garden views. The bedrooms are furnished with antiques and, whilst retaining their historic charm, have all the (discreet) concessions to comfort and modernity that the gentle traveller might require.

One of Gwydir’s charms is that we are a private house, not a hotel. We cannot offer elevators, gyms or poolside facilities but what we can offer is an experience like no other, where the peace and tranquillity of Gwydir’s historic atmosphere will soothe away the cares of the modern world.
