History

Bryn Gwynant was an extensive house, built in 1834. It had been looked at by YHA in the early days and rejected because it had fallen into bad repair, but two succeeding owners had improved the place substantially. In 1958, YHA looked again at Bryn Gwynant, and liked it much more than in 1930. It was perfectly situated, alongside Llyn Gwynant, for climbing Snowdon. The location is just breath-taking and YHA didn’t want to miss out on this fantastic opportunity. The hostel opened in 1959 and continues to attract hundreds of visitors each year.

Meet the team

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.
