Cnicht from Plas Brondanw

Cnicht from Plas Brondanw

dsc_0015 There’s a magical garden up a little visited valley about half an hour from The Slate Shed B & B at Graig Wen. Plas Brondanw was the home of Clough Williams-Ellis, architect errant of the more famous Portmeirion. But if you want to experience his special brand of surreal charm with fewer people around, then we recommend exploring Plas Brondanw. Especially on a crisp day in November. Those who remember the Beauty and the Beast Ladybird book illustrations might find the clipped yew hedges, mossy lawns and weather worn statues oddly familiar. There’s also a secret tower with incredible views of Snowdon and Cnicht. A small tea room is open on winter weekends and dogs on leads are welcome to visit Plas Brondanw too.
