Plas Dinas Country House – Caernarfon

Plas Dinas

Plas Dinas is historic Country House in Caernarfon, North Wales. Formerly the home of the Armstrong-Jones family, Plas Dinas offer you ten 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.

Plas Dinas is 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 Molton Brown toiletries, we retain a comfortable homely feel with many period antiques and original family portraits adorning the walls. Our warm and friendly atmosphere, attention to detail and attentive yet unobtrusive service sets us apart from our competition. Plas Dinas is Grade II listed and dates back to the mid-seventeenth century but with extensive Victorian additions.  The original house was built around the substantial stone arched fireplace which can still be seen in the Gun Room today. The house, surrounded by farmland, came into the possession of the Armstrong-Jones family in the nineteenth century through marriage.  In 1899 Sir Robert Jones, who subsequently altered his name to Armstrong-Jones, had a son named Ronald.  The family was, at that time, living in the London area and retained Plas Dinas as their country home. Ronald Jones married Anne, and the marriage produced a son, Antony, who in 1961 married HRH Princess Margaret, the Queen’s sister.  Lord Snowdon, who suffered a major attack of polio in his youth built a reputation for photography and has portrayed many famous people in his career, including members of the current House of Windsor. Plas Dinas still retains many family portraits, memorabilia and original furniture.  It presents the opportunity to enjoy the ambience of a genuine Welsh gentleman’s country residence, largely unspoilt by its conversion to luxury accommodation.
