We booked Plas Dorothea for my mother-in-law’s 70th birthday and we were all looking forward to an enjoyable holiday. We did enjoy our time together but the house was not up to the standard that was portrayed in the advert or what it should be....More

About the neighbourhood
The area is ideal for exploring the beautful coastal area and the Snowdonia National Park. Many of our guests enjoy a visit to the nearby zip wire and trampoline attractions located in the old slate workings in Snowdonia.
Getting around
To fully explore the coastal area of the Llynn Peninsular and Snowdonia I would recommend that you have access to your own transport although the local bus service is quite extensive.
