Area Overview

Nant Peris sits between Llanberis and Capel Curig on the A4086 in Gwynedd, North Wales. You could not be closer to the mountains than when you are in the village of Nant Peris. Sheltering in the foothills of Mount Snowdon, it is a mere 3km from the Snowdon Mountain Railway (easiest route to the top - sitting on the train), or take the Pyg Track from Pen y Pass just 5.5km down the A4086 road (suitable for more experienced mountain walkers - catch the Sherpa Bus to the start of the walk at the Pen y Pass car park). There is a fantastic camp site with showers and mountain views right opposite the pub. The town of Llanberis itself is just a short drive (3km) in the opposite direction alongside Llyn Peris and passing the remains of the famous Dolbadarn Castle on the way. Another lake to be discovered is the beautiful Llyn Gwynant, on the eastern side of Snowdon and 12.9km south east of Nant Peris along the A498.

Private Accommodation

The accommodation consists of a substantial lounge and kitchen area, with three well sized bedrooms. There is an office area that can be used also.

Vaynol Arms

Pub location on map


This is a unique opportunity for an experienced operator. The Vaynol Arms has been described as a pub that is well worth the hike! It is a traditional, Welsh long house pub situated in the Llanberis Pass at the base of Mount Snowdon. Quirky is an understatement when it comes to this pub. Outdoor pursuit equipment from throughout the ages adorn the walls of this hidden gem. A famous watering hole for serious climbers and walkers. On a historical note, the pub was originally a farmhouse called Tŷ’n Llan, a name still used by locals today. Tŷ’n Llan means “house in the Llan”, with Llan meaning walled enclosure of a church. When looking at the pub, you will notice that the Churchyard of St Peris’ church is immediately adjacent to the pub’s car park. The pub is also situated next to the Llanberis Mountain Rescue centre. 


Trading Accommodation

This traditional Welsh long house pub is situated at the start of the Llanberis Pass at the base of Mount Snowdon. As you enter the large, white fronted pub you are met with a significant, well equipped bar, with original wood features. A famous watering hole for serious climbers and walkers, this pub will be perfect for a licensee who likes the outdoor pursuits. The stone flooring throughout the pub is ideal for walkers, climbers, and hikers with their muddy boots. As you turn to the left of the pub, you are met with a huge open fireplace that is adorned with outdoor pursuit equipment from through out the ages. To the back of the pub, you have a pool table, which climbers and hikers alike use to relax after their long day up the mountain. To the right-hand side of the pub, there is the dining room, which can seat approximately 20 covers. This is serviced by a substantial, well equipped kitchen. The clientele that enter the pub are from the village of Nant Peris, as well as hikers and day trippers. The pub is situated next to the Llanberis Mountain Rescue. Robinsons are ideally looking for a licensee who can immerse themselves into the community life, as well as entertaining the climbers and hikers alike.
