Reviewed August 26, 2014

This property is certainly a long way from anywhere unless you are already in Abersoch or Aberdaron and to be fair does not really merit a journey on its own. Public transport access is likely to be rather limited! If you are in the area it is worth calling in but don't expect too much. The house is essentially 1930s inside - there are 3 rooms downstairs and 3 upstairs. All fairly modest. The gardens are nothing special - mostly rather overgrown with a small formal area and a bit of colour. There is a good view across the bay. You can get refreshments in a café there and there is a small shop.

A beautiful NT property which has been preserved with all the original furniture, paintings etc. There is also a lovely garden to explore and the views are stunning over Hell's Mouth Bay. There's also a small tea room with outside seating. It's quite a trek from the main road but very worthwhile. The NT volunteers on duty weren't very informative and not very smiley either. Still definitely worth a visit.

Been back for another visit & still amazed at the place. So peaceful & such a lovely setting. Love the character of the house and garden. Friendly staff. Now with an added orchard & a tea room.

We have visited here for the past several years. The big pull is - everything in it is original. Most NT places have imported artefacts, to pad out the furnishings experience, but not so here. I Love that! Now they've converted an outbuilding into a superb café. Here, the staff are helpful and friendly in their new blue uniforms. The coffee and cakes were excellent, if just a tad pricey - but then we "are away from it all". We're not, we're a mile away from our cottage at the top of the hill.
We shall definitely return next year, God willing. An excellent way to spend most of a wet day - and you will, likely as not, get one!

We took a day trip along the Llyn Peninsula and decided on the spur of the moment to visit Plas yn Rhiw. At Llanbedrog we turned off the A499 on to a minor road sign posted for Plas yn Rhiw and eventually pulled into the overflow car park, which is just a grassy meadow with room for about 10 cars. From here there is a quite steep short walk up the driveway to reception. The small house and well managed gardens are beautifully situated in a very quiet location. The staff are friendly and willing to give any information about the history of the property and the artefacts are well laid out. The views over the bay are spectacular. A little café set beside the main car park serves a good selection of food and drinks.
The only down side is the lack of direction signs along the route. Apart from one at the turning from the A499 the only other signs are after five miles, at a left hand "T" junction, then, after a further 2 miles, at the entrance to the property.
There is a fee for non National Trust visitors.
