Outdoor Pursuits and Adventure Activities.

There is excellent schooling nearby with a newly built
primary school at Llanegryn, as well as secondary schools in

The Pen-y-Bont Hotel is an historical 16th Century Coaching
Inn providing accommodation and a place of sustenance over
the centuries. Many years ago there was also a Blacksmith’s
forge (now the sitting room and bar) and the long barn
housed the coaches and stabling for the horses. The present
owners arrived in 2006 to a semi derelict main building and
set about re-roofing much of the main roof, rewiring, dry
lining walls, replacing windows, updating heating systems,
installing a fire alarm system and much more to re-open the
business. Today, Pen-y-Bont Hotel caters for its residents and
is run very much to suit the present owners. However its
scope and potential is exciting with great opportunities. The
lakeside rooms have many possible uses such as utilising its
excellent Commercial Kitchen and making it more available
to the public or alternatively converting into self catering
accommodation or further letting rooms.

The enclosed verandah along the front of the house provides
two entrances into the property, one being the main reception
hall with a further entrance hall to the bar. The main dining
room, once two rooms, caters for up to 50 covers and has
fireplaces at either end. The slate floor continues into the
sitting room/bar with its inglenook fireplace and cloak rooms
beyond. At the other end of the restaurant are the suberbly
equipped commercial kitchens. On the first floor there are
eight bedrooms. Five have en-suite shower rooms and two
have scope for ensuite facilities if needed. The Family Room
has its own bathroom and a separate parking area and
entrance via a ramp to the rear of the building.

An enclosed corridor from the kitchen forms the back
of the courtyard garden and links the main house to the
Lakeside Annexe. Along the corridor are various store rooms
accommodating a walk-in fridge, chest freezers and utility
rooms. A small courtyard at the back of this includes a
cabin workshop. The long barn known as the Lakeside
Bar can accommodate up to 60 covers with additional seating
for 24 covers in the games room and has cloakrooms beyond.


At the front entrance of the main building there is space for
outside seating.

The pretty courtyard garden between the two buildings
is ideal for entertaining, up to 16 covers and more outside
dining space is available in the garden beside the lake, up to
60 covers. The view from here is stunning, one of the iconic
views of Wales and is frequently used in national advertising.

The large car park alongside the lake also provides an income
from motor homes, walkers and swimmers who come to
enjoy the wonderful surroundings and facilities.


Mains electricity. Private borehole water supply. Private
drainage. LPG Bulk Storage Tank for gas fired boilers
including central heating and Cooking Range. Broadband
soon to be augmented by High Speed Satellite Broadband.
