Tŷ Afon - River House. Boutique retreats & weddings.

A exclusive hire, luxury wedding venue in the wilds of Eryri | Snowdonia National Park, nestled in the foothills of Yr Wyddfa | Snowdon. In the ancient village of Beddgelert.

This enchanting place brings together all the elements for a truly exceptional wedding experience. The venue combines a breathtaking location, versatile events space, and fine food tailored to your needs and desires. A Tŷ Afon wedding promises mesmerising scenery and unparalleled hospitality throughout all seasons.

Facilities and Capacity

A spellbinding wedding venue in all seasons, Tŷ Afon transforms from the deep reds and aubergines of Autumn into a riot of glorious green, pink and blue in Spring and Summer. Winter in the national park is also a time of dramatic landscapes, moody mountain skies, and the occasional dusting of sparkling snow. Tŷ Afon sets the scene for an authentic, romantic wedding experience that pays homage to the relationship and the journey you are taking together. Perfect for those who love the natural world, couples can choose a traditional church wedding or venue-based ceremony. Alternatively, your vision may be to hike into the mountains and exchange vows there. Church weddings occur in the sacred sanctuary of St Mary’s, once part of an Augustinian priory. Just as the two rivers meet in the village, the happy couple will unite to exchange vows before crossing the old stone bridge as one, forever entwined as the waters that cascade endlessly below. Beautifully planted gardens with many trees and colours provide the perfect backdrop for that confetti moment or photography, followed by a memorable wedding reception with everything needed for a night of dining and dancing.


Devotedly designed to recreate the feel of the great outdoors, each of our ensuite guest rooms provides a luxurious space for you and your guests to relax, prepare and reflect on the festivities. The changing colours of the mountains can be admired from all our bedroom windows. Further accommodation (within walking distance) is available in the village for larger parties.

Services Offered

The dedicated Tŷ Afon team is on hand throughout the event to care for you and your guests. From setting up to clearing away, they will endeavour to orchestrate even the smallest detail so your celebration will be remembered. The venue offers a light-up dance floor and can arrange music and PA systems per your needs. An excellent breakfast menu is made to order for guests if more than the included continental breakfast is required. The venue also offers ample private parking for ease of arrival.

Our perfect wedding

Both of Antony and I have struggled to find the words to describe exactly just how fantastic our wedding was, perfect just doesn’t do the day justice and we feel so incredibly privileged to have spent our special day at Ty Afon. Thank you so much for everything, from making us all feel so comfortable and at ease, the attention to every detail, the care you showed to us both and our family and guests, the absolutely stunning venue in the most fantastic of surroundings.………..
I could go on and on, and never quite adequately convey just how amazing our day was.

All of our friends and family have described it as the most gorgeous wedding ever which is exactly what we had hoped for, we loved every minute and couldn’t have wished for more.

Ty Afon oozes beauty and peace, it is a place that feels filled with so much love and it will always have a very special place in our hearts. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Ty Afon is simply the most magical venue I could have imagined to host our special day. Every detail was perfectly in place and Regan and Emma made sure that both we and every member of our party, we treated like Royalty.
The view is spectacular with the plethora of natural colours all around us. The river flowing just a short walk from the venue made it even more special.
Everything was perfect, I feel absolutely blessed to have found you and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you. If I could give you a 100 stars 💫 I would.
