The Snowdonia National Park Centre is located in this well-appointed country house which, for many years, was the Welsh home of the Oakeley family, important quarry and land owners in the area.

Plas Tan y Bwlch occupies a superb position overlooking the valley of the river Dwyryd in the heart of the National Park. No part of the Park is more than an hour’s drive away and some of the most spectacular scenery in Britain is within easy reach. From the heights of Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon), Cadair Idris and the bleak moors of Migneint, the hills stretch down through secluded valleys with their wooded slopes and placid lakes down to the sea. Among them are many places of great botanical, geological and historical interest.

At this historic manor you are able to book accommodation events such as weddings and baby showers. We also cater for groups as well as vocational and educational course bookings.


“Queen rose of the rosebud garden of girls, come hither, the dances are done, in gloss of satin and glimmer of pearls...” Tennyson.

A day spent visiting the Plas Tan y Bwlch; Snowdonia’s National Park Environmental Studies Centre, is like finding a key that opens up a secret chapter in a history book, and allows you to enter into an enchanting world. Overlooking the valley of the silky silver ribbon that is River Dwyryd, this breathtaking attraction is a wonderful way of experiencing the natural beauty of glorious North Wales. Why not stay a while, and enjoy a little break in this stunning 18th Century mansion, which is situated in 100 acres of gardens, woodland and lakes, with panoramic views out and across the Victorian gardens and the valley beyond. Outstanding architecture and lush, serene gardens, offer visitors an unforgettable experience. So, leave the busy world far behind you a while
