LLANFROTHEN, is a village and a parish in the county of Gwynedd, Wales, between the towns of Porthmadog and Blaenau Ffestiniog. People visit Llanfrothen to enjoy peaceful, unspoilt surroundings where natural beauty is abundant and photo opportunities lurk around every corner. While there are popular tourist attractions nearby – for example, the Glaslyn Osprey Project at nearby Pont Croesor (handily located near the station for a trip on the Welsh Highland Railway), and Portmeirion, just down the road at Minffordd – the real delight in Llanfrothen and Croesor is just being there, soaking up the peaceful atmosphere and beautiful surroundings. The Ring (the local name for The Brondanw Arms) is a great place to do this.
The accommodation consists of two double bedrooms, one with fitted wardrobes, one with a fitted cupboard, plus one single bedroom. There is an outside seating area on a terrace that overlooks the campsite and gardens and has the benefit of a terrace and beautiful views. There is a lounge, bathroom and small kitchen and a storage area to the front of the property with a spacious office leading from it.

Known locally as 'The Ring' it I based in the heart of Snowdonia and is a wonderful example of a traditional Welsh pub with its slate floors, roaring log fires, cask ales, small cosy dining areas and an award-winning menu. There is a children's play area set in the grounds and a small camp site.
