The Crown Inn and Campsite: Beautiful scenery (photo added by  on 13/08/2022)

General

  • Well-maintained family-run north Wales pub site by the river Alwen
  • In Llanfihangel Glyn Myfyr; edge of Snowdonia 15 minutes' drive
  • Alpaca walks and feeding on site; river fishing permitted

Originally a drovers' inn, The Crown Inn is a handsome Grade II-listed pub sitting in a peaceful position by the river Alwen in the pretty North Wales village of Llanfihangel Glyn Myfyr. Lying just behind the pub and skirted by ancient woodland, the pub's laidback camping area has easy access to forest trails, fishing on the riverbank and drinks in the bar.

Access to The Crown Inn and Campsite is via a ford crossing that crosses the river – an exciting and intrepid journey that's sure to hold particular appeal for younger guests. A short wander away, there's a small waterfall that cascades down from the top of the woods into the river below – keep an eye out for fairies around here, as they're known to hang around in the area by the wooden bridge…

Facilities here consist of well-maintained compost toilets and a washing-up area on site. There's access to The Crown Inn's bar and restaurant, which serve up good food and drinks throughout the week. Looking for things to do during your down-time? Relax by the riverbank, try a spot of catch-and-return fishing in the Alwen or fix yourself a firepit.

You can also book some time at the site's private alpaca paddock to feed The Crown Inn's friendly boys, or sign up to an alpaca walk through the surrounding countryside with a woolly companion by your side.

    Brilliant hosts that made our stay very enjoyable, despite the bad weather. We had dinner at the Crown Inn on one of the nights and the food was excellent, with between course entertainment by Rob, one of the friendly locals. Not a bad word to say. We would love to return at some point !

    Stayed in the pod which was really cute and the bed was amazing so comfy. I’m fussy on my beds so I will be back. Really peaceful and close to many walks which is what we like. Yes no shower but adequate toilets and sink . Wish I’d brought my costume super hot and would have had a dip in the river.
    Owners super friendly and helpful. I would recommend and go back again. Pub on site what’s not to like

    Not much not to like. If your after a peaceful getaway in beautiful surroundings then this is for you.
    From crossing the ford to the lovely old pub which does great food to the sound of a babbling river as you go to sleep and the alpacas and goats.
    Everything was great. The staff and locals where very welcoming nearest town is Ruthin 12 miles away so be sure to take all you need. Lovely walks in the area through the forests. If I could give ten stars I would.

    Disliked: 

    The only down side was no shower but do what I did get a bar of soap and get in the river.

Local attractions

There's plenty to do hereabouts, whether you're inclined to go off gallivanting through the hills of Snowdonia National Park (from 15 minutes' drive), boating on Bala lake (20 minutes) or heading out to see cool castles like the one at Conwy (45 minutes). The village of Llanfihangel Glyn Myfyr is in a central location in North Wales, so both the north and west coasts of the country are within an hour's drive too.

If you've got kids or teens to keep entertained, popular options to keep them busy include Go Below Underground Adventures (20 minutes), a caving outfit based in Betws-y-Coed, the woodland rides and activities at Zip World Fforest (25 minutes) or taking a trip to see the many species of animals and birds at the Welsh Mountain Zoo (50 minutes).

For something silent and serene instead, take a soothing stroll around the grounds of Clocaenog Forest (five minutes; free parking available at Bod Petryal car park), keep your eyes and ears peeled for osprey at Llyn Brenig (15 minutes) or appreciate the horticultural offerings on display at Caerau Gardens (25 minutes).
