I think the gentleman who lived in the house was a Mr Evans ,I believe he was an accountant or a solicitor in Llanrwst not certain , but his son Dewi farmed Gofer Farm in the Bryn Y Maen area .they also had a daughter I do not recall her name but will make enquires if it helps

I put in Gwyrfai into the online catalogue for Conwy Archives and there were 8 entries for Gwyrfai and the item below is similar to the others and the time was around the 1930's

I haven't looked at this properly but you can see the problems that occur when someone copies details from one form to the next.
For a start the surname in the Census is Davies not Davis and Denbighshire has never been in England, that's a bit of ignorance on behalf of the person who compiled the info Rhuddlan found.
Anyway, I can't make out the farm name at present but it should be easy to find

Hi Anneelaine, these things happen but it just makes things harder to follow.   The farm looks like Ffrith Y Foel but I can't locate it on my O/S map but will look again and try and find it for you

I would say it is Ffrith-y-Foel ... I also recognise the names of some of the other addresses on that sheet.  It is at map reference SH 802734, post code LL28 5RD ... at the top of Bodnant Hill (A470) there is a cross roads, take the left turn (when heading south) and it is the first house on the left.  It is part of Bodnant Estate, and probably was back in 1891 as well.

Meusydd and Bryn Hyfryd are both on the unclassified back road from Fffrith-y-Foel back towards Fforddlas Bridge, and Bwlch Farm is at the top of the hill heading eastwards from Ffrith-y-Foel.

Thanks very much for posting that DVT,    I've had a look on old maps but wouldn't have found it without your help.
I'm off for a game of golf now but will look at the maps later and thanks again

I've had time to look at Google Earth and viewed Ffrith Y Foel.      It is the first house on the left as you go down Ffordd Prenol from the A470.  The house is a white building with the gable end facing the road and has it's name on a wooden sign by the roadside.
When I next go to Talgoed Nurseries I'll try and take a photo of the building
