Our Location



Bron Afon is a three-storey house built circa 1840. It is tastefully decorated and maintained throughout. It stands majestic in its grounds affording spectacular views of the estuary. To the left the Cnicht and Moelwyn Ranges of Snowdonia and the Ffestiniog Railway form a backdrop; immediately facing across the estuary the Meirionydd & Rhinog mountain ranges and to the right fantastic views of Harlech and its castle (built by Edward 1) standing on a mound below the town.

Borth-y-Gest is a picturesque harbour village situated on the banks of the Glaslyn estuary. At the turn of the century, Borth-y-Gest was an important ship building harbour with a sawmill and   four ship yards building wooden oak vessels for transporting slate all over the world.

There is up to three quarters of a mile of coves nestling below the cliffs where one can find sheltered sandy beaches providing relaxation and bathing for all.


Borth-y-Gest has three places of worship, one village store/post office where all essentials can be purchased. There are two eating establishments both overlooking the magnificent panoramic view of the harbour. A junior school is situated on the top of the hill above Borth-y-Gest where the Welsh language is predominantly taught and spoken.

There are some amazing walks along the cliff edge and through the woodland to the rear of the village all with breathtaking views of the mountains, sea & sand.
