About YHA Bryn Gwynant

A gem of a hostel, ideal for family breaks and activity breaks. YHA Bryn Gwynant is a Victorian mansion, perfectly placed for Snowdonia National Park holidays and set in large wooded grounds with stunning views over Llyn Gwynant and Snowdon itself. If walking holidays are your thing, you can set out from the hostel and take the scenic Watkin Path up Snowdon. After a busy day, try an evening meal in our licensed restaurant at this beautiful rural retreat. Have a look at a sample menu of what you can expect when you eat with us here.

Manager recommends

  • A nice contrast to on-the-go activity breaks and walking holidays, the quiet calm of sunset over the lake is a perfect end to any day. Set in 40 acres of wooded grounds with stunning views over Llyn Gwynant and Snowdon, a Snowdonia national park holiday in this beautiful rural retreat would make a marvellous family break.
