What makes us a Christian Guest House?
Beth Eden is owned by Christians, and we aim to run the business on Christian lines. This means that we seek to show a high level of care to both guests and staff, as well as the wider world through supporting eco-friendly and FairTrade products. We have a programme of Christian devotional meetings both morning and evening. These are often led by a guest speaker, otherwise by David Sales, one of the proprietors. They include a Bible reading, talk, singing, and prayer. The meetings are entirely optional, but open to all.
Neither all the staff, nor all the guests are Christians, and we welcome people of all faiths and none. We do not follow any particular denominational line, other than seeing the Bible as the basis of our belief and teaching.
Beth Eden was originally two houses, both built over 100 years ago as hotels. The two houses were joined together 40 years ago, shortly after coming into Christian ownership. The Parks ran the business under the name 'Emmaus' for over 20 years until Lionel and Doreen Phillips took over in 1993, and renamed the house 'Beth Eden'. Beth Eden means "The House of Eden", and is mentioned in the Bible in Amos 1:5.
Lionel and Doreen continued making improvements to the building, including making the majority of the rooms en-suite. When they retired in 2007, they passed on the business to their son, Mark, and David and Margaret Sales, who work together in a business partnership. Further developments to the building included making more of the bedrooms en-suite and the opening of The Eden Tea Rooms in April 2009, with a new disabled access toilet and a new entry to the building.
Beth Eden is run as a partnership between David and Margaret Sales and Mark Phillips, and therefore does not have a company number. We are VAT registered - number 560 2382 62 and can provide VAT invoices on request.
We are a member of North Wales Tourism - registration number 30589.
