Tu Hwnt I’r Bont

Tu Hwnt I’r Bont Llanrwst LL26 0PL

Tu Hwnt I’r Bont translates in Welsh as "Beyond the Bridge", yet it's considerably older than the 18th-century Inigo Jones stone bridge it sits next to.  The stunning ivy-covered ex-residential dwelling, with the river Conwy flowing alongside it, dates right back to the late 15th-century and still looks every part the rural dream home it always was. Recently taken over by the National Trust, it's now a tea shop – widely renowned for its cream teas – with many visitors heading towards Betws-y-Coed and the Conwy valley often popping in for one of their famous secret recipe scones on the way.  Yes, the scones have made Tu Hwnt I'r Bont a popular North Wales tourist attraction, but it's not just the scones that are worth trying. They also serve delicious homemade soups, freshly made bara brith, pâté platters, thickly cut sandwiches and of course, traditional Welsh Rarebit. It's one of the best spots in the country for cream teas, and once your sitting outside in the sunshine, listening to the babbling sounds of the river Conwy and tucking into soft crumbly scones, you'll understand why.
