A charming cottage at the gate to a country house hotel

Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4

Key Info
  • Suitable for children over
  • Some pets are welcome - please contact the owner
  • Private garden

A charming 2 bedroom country cottage in the grounds of Plas Dinas Country House around 5 minutes drive from the famous castle town of Caernarfon in North Wales, United Kingdom.

The historic Victorian Cottage is located at the entrance to the Plas Dinas estate, famous in Wales as the former home of the Armstrong-Jones family. (Anthony Armstrong-Jones was the famous Lord Snowdon, married to Princess Margaret) and the main house still contains many family items and memorabilia.

Downstairs you will find a cosy lounge with fireplace and tv, a seperate dining room, a seperate, fully-equipped kitchen, a seperate laundry with washing machine & tumble dryer, as well as a downstairs toilet. Upstairs are two good size bedrooms, one with a king size bed and the other with a choice of twin or double bed.

There is a cosy bathroom with oval bath/shower.

Our guests have full access to our estate grounds (great for walking) and an optional breakfast and dinner is available in the main house dining room if booked in advance.

North Wales is one of the most visited areas in the British Isles. The highest mountain in the UK, Snowdon, is visible from the estate and the area is steeped in history with plenty of famous castles, sea fronts, walks and biking.

We are about 1 h 30 mins from Manchester International Airport and about 1 hour drive from the famous Tudor town of Chester.

It is best to have your own car if you really want to explore, alternatively, you can take a taxi from Bangor Station (direct mainline Virgin Train services from London Euston are about 3 h 10 mins) and you can collect a rental car at the local Europcar office near Caernarfon.

Your rate is self-catering, however, meals are available in the dining room at the main house if pre-reserved. All bedding and towels are provided as well as luxurious Molton Brown toiletries.
