Welcome to our first newsletter of the year.  We've been lucky and had very little in the way of snow here in North wales, but Patsy has enjoyed what little we did have!  As ever, we seem to have our own little micro climate where the weather is often not too bad when the rest of the UK is suffering!  Today it’s cold, but nice and sunny and the snow-capped mountains around us look lovely.

Christmas and New Year were thoroughly enjoyed by the groups that stayed here on a self-catering basis.  We’ve already sold New Year 2010 but Christmas is still available so if you’re interested then get your skates on and get your group together.  Email us for more information or check out

We’ve just had a really busy Valentines weekend and a full restaurant.  Love is certainly in the air as we’re getting lots of wedding enquiries at the moment and dates are filling up fast for later in the year.

We’ve kept ourselves busy in the traditionally quiet January by continuing with maintenance and re-decorating some areas of the house.  We want the place looking as good as it can be by Easter, knowing we’ll be too busy to be decorating from then on.

We’ve got lots of offers and more news so read on and enjoy.  If you fancy a spring break and a wander round the grounds looking at our beautiful snowdrops we have massive savings below.

Hope to see you in 2010...

Warm regards,

Andy, Julian & Patsy!

Some how the year is already flying by and it’s almost March so it’s time to be thinking about Mothers’ Day on Sunday 14th.

For those of you that want to treat their mother to something special this year, why not buy her a voucher for Plas Dinas?  We can produce a voucher for any denomination to cover an overnight stay, dinner, wine, or all three!

If you are more local, why not treat her to dinner here?  We’re opening the restaurant on Sunday evening this year and offering a special 4 course meal for just £25 per head.

We’ve continued to gain recognition lately with yet more great publicity.  We have now officially made it in to the Michelin Guide 2010, National Geographic’s 2010 Stay List (to be published in April) and we were included in the Top 10 Country House Hotels in the UK by the Sunday Mirror at the end of December!

We have also recently appeared on the BBC News website with an article about the history of the house.  It was a huge thing to happen in the area when HRH Princess Margaret was a regular visitor so they felt it should be included in their North Wales historical section.
