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.

The fine print
Travel directions by car: Using a satellite navigation device please input Tremadog as your final destination as the property postcode will take you away from the house. From the main square in Tremadog, facing The Royal Madoc hotel, turn right. The entrance drive to Plas Tan-Yr-Allt will be seen after approximately 0.5 a mile, on the left hand side. It is important to stay on the main road heading east out of Tremadog with the garden center on your right and the disused Mill on your left. After passing the mill by 300 feet, you will come to the first sign of the house, just past the lay-by on your left. Travel a further 100 yards just before the brow of the hill. Plas Tan-Yr-Allt will be clearly signposted on your left. Turn left at this sign exiting the main road and onto the long drive.
