Perched high on a hillside and nestled amongst some 40 acres of ancient woodlands with long lensed views over the Glaslyn Estuary, Ffestiniog Steam Railway to the plantagenet castle of Harlech and mountains beyond. Plas Tan-Yr-Allt was the first Regency Villa in North Wales built by William Madocks the esteemed philanthropist and entrepreneur. His vantage point "spectaculaire" to observe his newly constructed Cob, the then gateway to the areas mountain quarries and bustling international port of Porth Madoc (Madocks Port / Porthmadog) and Tre Madoc (Madocks Town / Tremadog) with its aptly named London and Dublin Streets respectively. All designed and built in typical Madocks style - the architecture very much thought out and in the latest "rigueur du jour".Captivated by the idyllic of all settings the 18th century literary superstar Percy.B.Shelley completed his most famous of works Queen Mab "All things are recreated". Other noted residents include Elizabeth Billington the opera singer of her day, E.F Benson of Mapp & Lucia provenance, Miss Mary Hilda Greaves the aunt of Portmerion founder and architect "extraordinaire" Sir Clough Willams-Ellis - all to name but a few.
Porthmadog is essentially a gateway to the stunning Glaslyn Valley at the southern edge of the Vale of Ffestiniog which leads directly to Beddgelert and the main peaks of the Snowdonia National Park, including Snowdon. It is also home to the Ffestiniog and Welsh Highland Railway - both of which pass through some incredible scenery. The world famous Italianate village of Portmeirion designed by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis is also a stone's throw away from the house.The sandy beaches of Borth-y-Gest and the famous Black Rock Sands at Morfa Bychan are all within a 10 minute drive.Golf in the area is well provided for with courses at Harlech, Porthmadog, Pwllheli, Nefyn and Abersoch. We are based in the centre of the Snowdonia National Park and are ideally placed for all the attractions that North Wales has to offer.
