Many people visit the area to climb Snowdon – the highest mountain in England and Wales, but there are also numerous cycle paths, coastal walks, public footpaths and beautiful beaches so you are spoilt for choice.

The list of man-made and natural fishing lakes in North Wales is extensive. Bala Lake, is the largest natural still water in North Wales, with the River Dee flowing through it, offering season round opportunities to catch different fish.

Welcome to Plas Dinas, an award-winning historic Country House set in Snowdonia, North Wales. Formerly the home of the Armstrong-Jones family, we 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 our 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.

Whilst having state of the art facilities such as free wireless internet access and on-demand movies, we retain a comfortable homely feel with many period antiques and original family portraits adorning the walls.

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.

Our 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 our Gun Room with a huge inglenook fireplace in the oldest part of the building. Well worth exploring, the room is adorned with memorabilia.

Plas Dinas Country House is not just a place to stay overnight. We hope you are able to experience our hospitality soon and find out what makes us so special.
