Leave your car and head for the top of Wales
A B&B business in Betws-y-Coed, Snowdonia, is laying down a challenge for Green Tourism Week: travel from your home to the top of Snowdon using only public transport. http://www.greentourismweek.co.uk
Bryn Bella Guest House, run by owners Mark and Joan Edwards, overlooks the landmark town of Betws-y-Coed in Snowdonia National Park, and is just over an hour and a half away from Knutsford. Both Mark and Joan care passionately about the environment and are a regular port of call for guests travelling using only public transport.
“We get many guests who head off to climb Snowdon during their stay, and we are increasingly attracting visitors who make their choice of accommodation based on its commitment to the environment, “ said owner Mark.
“We will happily provide all the information you need about transport from here to the top of Snowdon and a warm and comfortable welcome when you get back!”
Listed as one of the 30 coolest B&Bs in Britain in March 2010, by Times Online, Bryn Bella is an eco lovers dream.
Bryn Bella’s eco-friendly credentials are outstanding, all electricity is from renewable sources, water is heated by solar energy and everything is recycled. Mark and Joan also grow their own fruit and vegetables and collect eggs from their chickens that run freely outside.
The B&B business also holds a Gold from the Green Business Tourism Award Scheme, and was named “Most Sustainable B&B” in the Green Snowdonia Tourism Awards. – www.bryn-bella.co.uk
