Plas Meini is one of the finest estates in Snowdonia National Park with a magnificent Victorian eight bedroom residence as well as four holiday cottages and a studio set in an extremely tranquil position.

The main house, constructed in 1865, has considerable character and sits within the picturesque Dwyryd Valley. Constructed of stone under a steeply pitched slate roof the house offers light and spacious family accommodation. Sympathetically restored by the current owners of 21 years, the property retains original features like the superb staircase, slate fireplaces and tessellated tile floor, as well as fitted bookcases and cupboards throughout the property.

The drawing room is of particular note with a fine original fireplace and two sets of French doors which open out onto a terrace and the garden. Accommodation comprises a living room, dining room, study, breakfast room, hall, cloakroom, kitchen, and eight bedrooms, plus three bathrooms.

The cottages are let for holiday use, and the current owners have run a very successful business for the last fifteen years. In addition there are several disused barns which could also be converted.

Outside the estate lies within glorious, unspoiled countryside with wildflower meadows and bluebell woods. There is also an abundance of wildlife including red kites, buzzards, tawny owls and otters. The land extends to around 100 acres and has been farmed according to organic principles. The River Teigl borders the land with its dramatic waterfalls which also provides a quarter mile of salmon and trout fishing with a small fishing lake. The land is ideal for equestrian and sporting use – the present owner breeds miniature Shetland ponies and has developed extensive stabling within the estate.

The estate is set within the lovely Snowdonia National Park with the harbour town of Porthmadog just seven miles by car. It has good amenities and local schooling as well as good restaurants.

The guide price is £1,950,000. For further information please contact Carter Jonas on 01248 360410 or visit www.carterjonas.co.uk.
