A wonderful, majestic looking property and a little pocket of history situated on the banks of a tranquil river, Plas Penrhyn is the ideal holiday cottage for anyone looking to visit Mid/North Wales. The house may date back to the seventeenth century but it is equipped with every conceivable gadget. The views from the top floor are a sight to behold; there is lots of space for you to sit and relax (my personal favourite was the reception room on the ground floor that was free from much modern-day influence but boasts a great fire); a great breakfast bar with access to more stunning scenery; a small but seriously fun snooker table; five beautiful, well-equipped and spotless bathrooms; and you might get to sleep in the imposing four poster bed! Features such as the slate floor in the kitchen and the old hope chest (at the foot of the four-poster bed) that looks about two hundred years old are just some gems that you can look forward to experiencing. And if you're lucky, the weather might be good enough for you to sit outside and eat! The property owner couldn't do enough for us and made us feel really welcome. She was brilliant and my family and I all agreed that we would love to return to Plas Penrhyn. Best of Wales were excellent. All the information about the property was concise and precise.Mark from County Durham - 1st December 2018
Absolutely fantastic house. We chose the property as a base for the comedy festival as we wanted to be comfortable. Our group consisted of 8 adults. We were amazed at the level and quality of the furnishings and facilities. The owners couldn't do enough to help with our stay. It's a superb location with stunning views. A real gem. Will definitely be returning. Richard from Llanelli - 9th May 2018
Excellent property of the highest standard, fabulous for a large gathering. A little piece of heaven on earthHannah from Warwickshire - 17th January 2018
