Our Inspector's view

Plas Dinas Country House nestles between the Snowdonia mountains and the Irish Sea; an idyllic setting with stunning views. Located in beautiful grounds, this delightful Grade-II listed building dates back to the mid-17th century. Featuring beautiful grounds and an award-winning restaurant, and formerly the home of the Armstrong-Jones family, it offers ten individually styled bedrooms in historic yet relaxed surroundings. Take a stroll round the estate or sit by the roaring log fire in the drawing room on a cold winter's day. Each room has recently been redesigned to represent the person or role within the Armstrong-Jones family that they represent. The Princess Margaret Suite has been recently redesigned and features wedding memorabilia from her wedding to Lord Snowdon.

About the area

Discover Gwynedd

The county of Gwynedd is home to most of the Snowdonia National Park – including the wettest spot in Britain, an arête running up to Snowdon’s summit that receives an average annual rainfall of 4,473mm. With its mighty peaks, rivers and strong Welsh heritage (it has the highest proportion of Welsh-speakers in all of Wales), it’s always been an extremely popular place to visit and live. The busiest part is around Snowdon; around 750,000 people climb, walk or ride the train to the summit each year.

Also in Gwynedd is the Llyn Peninsula, a remote part of Wales sticking 30 miles out into the Irish Sea. At the base of the peninsula is Porthmadog, a small town linked to Snowdonia by two steam railways – the Welsh Highland Railway and the Ffestiniog Railway. Other popular places are Criccieth, with a castle on its headland overlooking the beach, Pwllheli, and Abersoch and the St Tudwal Islands. Elsewhere, the peninsula is all about wildlife, tranquillity, and ancient sacred sites. Tre’r Ceiri hill fort is an Iron Age settlement set beside the coastal mountain of Yr Eifl, while Bardsey Island, at the tip of the peninsula, was the site of a fifth-century Celtic monastery.
