Went to Glynllifon this morning (sunday) just after 10am.The signs at the car park state that Glynllifon is open 7 days a week from 10am to 5pm. We fancied a coffee at the café. We sat outside until 10.20 and then left.

A wonderful place to explore, eat and buy local crafts. The grounds are a maze of paths, hidden artifacts and seeped in history. Well worth a visit.

There are two toilet blocks, one near the cafe and one near the craft workshops. There are no toilets within the grounds/gardens themselves.

Yes, absolutely. The place is perfect for dog walking. But they do need to be kept on a leash and their mess cleaned. Appropriate bins provided in the car park.
