Plas Dolmelynllyn is a beautiful, tranquil country hotel set in magnificent scenery.

Family owned and managed by a father and daughter team, Jon Barkwith responsible for general management and Joanna as head chef.

There has been a house on this site for several hundred years and part of the 'Old Hall' dates back to the 16th century.



As you enter the hall there is an aura of days gone by.

The elegant sitting-room, with its three large windows, gives superb views of the gardens and over the valley with the mountains as a background.

Surrounding the hotel are three acres of terraced formal gardens, bounded by a swiftly running stream.

Every bedroom has a different decorative theme and all have items which nowadays have become essentials, such as:

- direct dial telephone
- colour television and radio
- hairdryer
- tea and coffee making facilities



The dining room is the centre of the house - where Jo, from her kitchen presents a wide choice menu, including vegetarian options.

Her award winning cooking has been described as 'highly imaginative traditional British'. There is a choice of any four courses plus a selection of teas or coffee.

Apart from vegetarian choices, other diets can always be catered for, given prior notice.

Next to the dining room is the Conservatory Bar where there is a battle for supremacy between the plants and the bottles.

The bottles extend into the cellar where there is a comprehensive list of over a hundred different wines.


The many leisure activities nearby include fishing, walking, cycling and golf.
