Painting Courses

We have lined up an exclusive painting course in September.  Arriving Sunday 18th, the course will start on 19th and run for two days.  It will be a lovely opportunity to spend time in a small group enjoying the beautiful surroundings and scenery on offer within our grounds.


Pat Mountford, an experienced art teacher will facilitate to help you find your own artistic talent as you learn techniques along the way, building your confidence and most importantly having fun during the creative process!



The price will be inclusive of B&B, lunch, and all artist materials.  Complete beginners are welcome and Pat is sure everyone will leave with some work they will be really proud of.


We’ve only just set the date so please contact us to register your interest and we'll send more details as soon as we have them.

Dear All

Well, what a whirlwind the last few months have been.  We’ve been really busy of late and every night seems like a Saturday with us being almost full most days with a busy night in the restaurant followed by a busy breakfast.


There are exciting times ahead with our TV appearance coming up next week.  If you’re planning a visit to Plas Dinas this year, it may be worth booking up now while we still have availability!


Our brand new website is now live – read on for more information and an exclusive launch offer. Let us know what you think.  As always, we’d appreciate any feedback you have.


We’ve had our downs this month too – part of our roof “slipped” off - we woke up to find it in the back garden one morning! After some extensive scaffolding, our builders have now fixed the damage during this current dry spell.  Our dishwasher seems to have a mind of its own and sometimes refuses to heat up – another little job to sort.


We have loads more news below so keep on reading!


See you soon.

We're on TV!

Our appearance on Channel 4 in “Four in a Bed” begins at 5pm, next Monday 13th June. 



We’re on every night of the week, with the other three B&B owners coming to Plas Dinas on Wednesday 15th.  Here's what the TV listing mags say about that episode:-


“It's Andy and Julian Banner-Price's turn to host the competition at their swanky Plas Dinas Country House in Snowdonia... Peter and Sharron arrive in North Wales still reeling from receiving their own feedback forms, and immediately begin finding fault with seemingly every aspect of their room, particularly the antique furniture.

A visit to the local slate museum provides a chance for the B&B owners to wash bedding the old fashioned way, and far from being a busman's holiday, it proves an unexpected hit...”


It promises to be very entertaining, so set the Sky+ on series link or you can watch the five episodes back to back on Sunday afternoon, Channel 4, 1.30pm.


Check out our special "Four in a Bed" page on our website, which includes the full episode guide as a sneak preview!


Christmas is coming!

Don’t forget that we have a deal on self-catering breaks over Christmas and New Year at the main house. 


Book before the end of June and we’ll give you a case of 12 bottles of house wine and 6 bottles of bubbly to help you celebrate.


We can sleep up to 20 people max in our ten 5 star luxury bedrooms.


We also have Plas Dinas Lodge available if you are a smaller group of up to six.

More improvements

Keeping a listed building like Plas Dinas in a good state of repair is a continuous process, but we feel maintaining the outside of the building is just as important as the inside.


Refurbishment of our many sash windows begins in a few months, when they will be restored to their former glory, and also have draught proofing fitted. The house will also get re-painted, keeping it looking stunning as you come down the drive.
