We visited on a day when it was not busy and managed to find a space to park but parking is limited and it is possible to walk from the centre of Llangollen in 15 minutes. The audio guide is worth the £1.50 charge as it gives lots of background information as well as activities for children, though the house... More

We went for a day in Llangollen and on a whim went to Plas Newydd. So pleased we did. What a gem. Lovely gardens but the house excelled. Quite a wow factor.

A beautiful house (shame it was covered with scaffolding when we visited but you can still see its charms) with a pretty garden and a lovely walk down by the river. The way down is quite steep albeit there are hand rails so probably wouldn't be suitable for those less able bodied but once down there is a well marked... More

We passed by on a Tiuesday which is the only day of the week that the building is closed. Fortunately the grounds are open until 8pm. The setting is quite breathtaking with Castell Dinas Bran and the Eglwyseg Mountains in the background. The wood carvings on the frontal exterior are worth a look in themselves. The garden is very tidy... More

Lovely old house and gardens. Has a bit of a woodland walk around the back, and some very well kept plants and statues in the grounds.

The walk from the town up to the house and gardens was well worth the track of about 1/4 mile. The house only opens from April to October, so was shut on the day we went, however, the gardens were lovely - particularly the crocuses in the lawn. Lots of topiary hedges and beautiful views of the outside of the... More

Due to the time of year the house was open but it is worth seeing from the outside, the gardens are very very well maintained and the stone circle and water tower are fascinating
