Plas Dorothea is located in the Nanttle Valley between the villages of Talysarn and Nanttle, across the river and adjacent to the famous Dorothea Quarry with its 350 acres of land to explore in the foothills of Mount Snowdon and is only 3 miles from the beautiful coastline of West Wales and its unspoilt beaches some 7 miles south of the castellated town of Caernarfon.

The property is a remote, detached, early Victorian mansion built in around 1860, with ample private parking at the front of the property for up to 6 vehicles, and is set in its own grounds which extend to some 5 acres and is pet friendly, with approximately 100 metres river frontage. There is a large walled Victorian garden which is laid to lawn and a smaller garden at the side of the house which is suitable for children of all ages and has a large trampoline. There are also two paddocks which may be used to house your own horses if required.

On the ground floor access from the the front door opens into a hallway with a large lounge and dining room leading off it, which has a traditional period cast iron open fireplace with surround and over mantle and also an attractive bay window. On the opposite side of the hallway is the original dining room which also has a period cast iron open fire and bay window, which has been converted into a large twin bedroom for the comfort of our guests.

There is a wood paneled breakfast room seating up to 12 people which also has period cast iron fireplace, also books and games for all the family, including table football, air hockey and pool.

There is wood paneled, pub styled bar, with an inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove, a casino gaming table & darts board. Access from the bar leads to doors to staircase leading to the wine cellar (no access to guests), door to the boot room which has outdoor games stored in it, including footballs, badminton, boules, basket ball and cricket. There is a door to the kitchen and access to large lawn and gardens. There are two staircases (one originally for the servants from the kitchen) and the main staircase leading to the first floor.

The first floor consists of a further 5 bedrooms, 3 of which are en-suite and the original paneled family bathroom with roll top bath with over shower and traditional Victorian sanitary fittings. There is a further door on the landing which leads to the servants quarters on the second floor which is currently closed to visitors. It is also a fantastic house for parties with optional disco lights in the bar.
