Welcome to Plas Dinas, an award-winning historic Country House set in Snowdonia, North Wales.
Formerly the home of the Armstrong-Jones family, they offer you nine individually styled bedrooms with five star comforts in historic yet relaxed surroundings in beautiful grounds as well as a charming, two bedroom self-catering cottage.
Nestled between the Snowdonia mountains and the Irish Sea, the idyllic setting and stunning views are not to be missed. Whether you take a stroll round the 15 acres in the summer or sit by the roaring log fire in the Drawing room on a cold winter’s day, you’ll relax the minute you arrive.
Plas Dinas is Grade II listed and dates back to the mid-seventeenth century but with extensive Victorian additions. The original house was build around the substantial stone arched fireplace which can still be seen in the Gun Room today.
Whilst having state of the art facilities such as free wireless internet access and on-demand movies, they retain a comfortable homely feel with many period antiques and original family portraits adorning the walls.
The warm and friendly atmosphere, attention to detail and attentive yet unobtrusive service sets the apart from their competition.
With luxury bedrooms offering supreme comfort, this fine old house dating back 400 years has a new lease of life. Whilst all bedrooms vary in size and are individually designed, the common thread throughout is comfort, great beds, crisp white linen, Molton Brown toiletries and those little touches which make a big difference.
You’ll experience reception rooms full of antiques, portraits and interesting memorabilia from the Armstrong-Jones family. The Drawing Room has a roaring log fire in the winter and you can enjoy a drink on the terrace in the summer. Spring is beautiful with a carpet of bluebells on The Mount and Autumn brings a multitude of colours from the trees in the grounds.
The dining room basks in the morning sun during breakfast and is romantic by candle-light for dinner which is served Tuesday to Saturday by arrangement. Larger parties or private dining groups can experience eating in the Gun Room with a huge inglenook fireplace in the oldest part of the building. Well worth exploring, the room is adorned with memorabilia.
Outside, you’ll find spectacular views in all directions – open countryside, the Snowdonia mountain range, Menai Straits and the Irish sea. Nestled down a long driveway, it feels like you are in the middle of nowhere, yet there are good road links to all major tourist attractions in the area.
