Brief Description

Plas Tan-y-Bwlch is a more or less intact mid-19th-century landscaped estate of house, garden, wooded park, valley and estate village with beautiful views across the landscape. It is currently used as a study centre for the Snowdonia National Park Authority, which aims to protect wildlife habitats in the grounds.


The estate at Plas Tan-y-Bwlch belonged to the Griffith family in the mid-18th century and passed by marriage to the Oakeleys in the late-18th century. In the late-19th century William Edward Oakeley rebuilt the house round an earlier core and carried out extensive work on the estate.
