“wonderful day trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

The area around Plas Newydd is simply stunning. the House and grounds are delightful, we took the audio tour and it opened our eyes to the enchanting world of the two ladies. The house is immaculately kept with original details, it gives a real sense of time in this open house museum. Delicious tea and cakes are served in the cafe worth a visit for 2 hours well spent

“Plas Newydd”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Charming house with lovely marine walk and views of Snowdonia and the Menai Straits. First we enjoyed an informative tour of the ground floor and after 1pm were free to walk around the house at our own pace.

“A national treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

An amazing house with the most carvings I have ever seen. The story of the Llangollen ladies is sweet and their devotion to one another was remarkable. A must for visitor to the area.

“Fascinating place with lovely grounds and tea room.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

We really looked forward to visiting Plas Newydd and we were not disappointed.
We paid to go in and got the audio equipment and were very impressed by the standard of the information.
Well set out but not ideal for anyone with limited walking.
Displays were very informative and staff were friendly and helpful.
We went for tea at the lovely tea room and were impressed by the fresh home made scones and coffee.
Lovely way to spend an afternoon.

“Nice setting and tea room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012 via mobile

This house has a lovely setting and we had a nice walk, great if you have got dogs. The tea room is lovely but doesn't have a proper coffee machine so order tea otherwise you get instant cappuccino which is not the best.
