Tucked high on a hillside overlooking the Glaslyn estuary, near Porthmadog, is the historic house of Plas Tan-Yr-Allt, or The Plas, as the owners lovingly refer to it. Once home to a slew of famous names including the poet Shelley, the opera singer, Elizabeth Billington and the author of the Mapp and Lucia novels, E. F. Benson, the house now offers luxurious bed and breakfast accommodation for guests looking for something a little out of the ordinary. Set within 40 acres of woodland, and within easy reach of all of the regions many attractions, Plas Tan-Yr-Allt is a stunning country house that simply oozes charm and sophistication.
There are three guest rooms at The Plas, and each one is named after a famous former resident of the house. The William Maddocks Bedroom and Shelleys Theatre both feature luxurious four-poster beds, whilst Miss Hildas Bedroom offers a sumptuous double bed. All rooms have immaculately presented en-suite bathrooms, with underfloor heating, heated towel rails, luxury towels and a selection of quality toiletries. From the finest Egyptian cotton bed linen to the Dolce Gusto coffee machine, every detail in the guest rooms has been carefully considered to ensure your stay is truly exceptional.
Breakfast is served downstairs in the Dining Room, with French Windows opening onto a terrace which looks across to the Glaslyn Estuary. A full Welsh breakfast is offered, along with lighter options including cereals, toast, yoghurts and fruit juices. Afternoon tea is served daily in the Drawing Room, or on the verandah during the summer months.
Half-board options are also available, with evening meals provided at a partner restaurant, Y Sgwar, located just down the road in Tremadog village. The restaurant serves an exclusive Plas menu as part of the half-board offering, and there is a complimentary shuttle service available to half-board guests, to take them to and from the restaurant.
Whilst it may be tempting to kick back and relax at The Plas, doing nothing more than exploring the 40 acres of grounds, and admiring the views, this area has so much more for the visitor to see and do. Nearby, the stunning Italianate town of Portmeirion is a must-see location, and the charming harbour town of Porthmadog is also well worth a trip. Criccieth, just 9 miles away, offers a traditional Welsh seaside welcome, with safe bathing and ice-creams from the famous Cadwalladers.
Further afield, the imposing castles at Harlech, Caernarfon, or even Conwy, all make superb destinations for a fascinating day trip. Of course, Tremadog sits as a gateway to the Snowdonia National Park, offering breathtaking scenery and unlimited outdoor adventures. Whether you want to go hiking on Snowdonia itself, Cadair Idris, or any of the smaller peaks in the National Park, or if you prefer a thrill-a-minute trip to Zip World or Surf Snowdonia, The Plas makes the perfect base for your holiday.
Whether you are looking for a relaxing holiday in Wales, or you're celebrating a special occasion with a stay in a luxury venue, Plas Tan-Yr-Allt is certain to delight. For a truly memorable stay in a stunning historic house, there are few places to rival this rare gem.
