Welcome to The Crown Inn / Croeso i Dafarn y Goron
A REAL GOOD PUB - REAL ALES, REAL FOOD, REAL FIRES, REAL CAMPING!
The Harding family - Brian, Maggie, Alex and Tom - offer you the warmest welcome to our traditional country pub and campsite.
The Crown Inn is a Grade II Listed historic Welsh drovers inn, nestled in the cliff face on the banks of the river Alwen, on the edge of the quiet village of Llanfihangel Glyn Myfyr in the Alwen Valley of North Wales. We are privileged to be in such a beautiful part of the world that William Wordsworth - a frequent visitor - referred to as his Vale of Meditation (English translation of Glyn Myfyr).
Privately set in 6 acres of ancient woodland and pasture along a half mile stretch of the River Alwen, our campsite is a wonderful setting for those wishing to get back to basics, sleeping under the stars with a real camp fire.

LONELY PLANET NAMES NORTH WALES AS THE 4TH BEST PLACE TO VISIT… IN THE WORLD!
Travel guide Lonely Planet has named North Wales fourth in a list of best regions to visit in 2017.
Tom Hall, Lonely Planet's editorial director, said: "It's a stunning area with a vast array of activities on offer to keep travellers entertained."
North Wales was ranked higher than areas including Aysen in Chile, the Tuamotus in French Polynesia and coastal Georgia in the USA.
Mr Hall added: "We included North Wales in this year's list of top 10 regions because it deserves to be recognised on the global stage. North Wales is a gem and should be on every traveller's radar."
