Where are we?

The Pen Bryn Twrw farmhouse and Idlewild Animal Sanctuary is situated in a fantastic location overlooking the Conwy Valley.

It is an unrivalled position to take in the beautiful North Wales landscape and tourist attractions. Ideal for walkers and lovers of the glorious countryside and historical interests, not to forget the beautiful beaches less than 30 minutes away!

The house is nestled into the centre of the 12 acre Animal Sanctuary that is a safe haven for unwanted abandoned and sick or disabled animals.

While onsite you will get a chance to meet the animals and maybe even help with feeding times if you like! You will be able to go for a stroll around the free ranging animal fields and get to know the animals.

Due to the beautiful and quiet rural location, Pen Bryn Twrw is located on a single track lane, the lane is a public highway and is tarmacked and there are lots of passing places too allow a good flow of local traffic.  We advise people to bring wellies or working boots as during the wet welsh weather there are times when the site will become muddy. 
Due to Pen Bryn Twrw being nestled in the centre of an animal sanctuary, a range of animal calls, including cockerels will be heard in and around the house. We find this is a beautiful part of the welsh countryside experience.
