Exclusively for residents of The Plas the Drawing Room remains virtually unaltered with its cornices, bookcases and original Italian fireplace dating back to the 18th century. Classic furnishings with a sympathetic palette balance regal leather chesterfields and tub chairs complimented by bold Kashmir Indian silk rugs. Regency style table lamps and diffused lighting create a period mood and subtle ambiance. Complete with a Baby Grand, Objet d’art and Drinks Globe – the Drawing room is the perfect setting for Miss Hilda’s Edwardian Cream Tea, pre or after dinner drinks or a simple “How do you do” with fellow guests.
Double aspect with french windows leading out onto the veranda and Shelley’s Lawn with expansive panoramic views over the gardens, estuary, sea and mountains beyond. Esteemed Welsh landscape artist Sir Kyffin Williams was so captivated by Plas Tan-Yr-Allt’s idyllic setting he commented “The view from its veranda was among the finest in Europe”.
On the night of the 26th February 1813 the Drawing Room played its most famous part as was the set of the ‘supposed’ assassination of our most celebrated resident Percy B Shelley. The event so traumatised Shelley that he left the following day for Ireland never to return. Now known as ‘Shelley’s Ghost’ guests still search for the ‘bullet’ holes left in the wainscot……..
So, whether its evening board games in the Drawing Room or perhaps a good book in front of the roaring log fire during the winter months, afternoon tea or a gentle stroll after breakfast in the grounds. At the end of the day your comfort is paramount to our delivering a wonderful experience.
‘On arrival we were provided with afternoon tea in the Drawing Room with log fire and a view of the Glaslyn estuary, including Madocks Cob, Boston Lodge and beyond to Harlech. This room set the tone for us, no television or modern distractions, an unbelievable feeling of tranquillity pervades, a glimpse of a bygone era when time spent was better accounted for’. Ian & Joanne
