Plas Dinas
Plas Dinas
Originally dating from the mid 17th century but significantly extended in the 19th century, this house served as the country home of the Armstrong-Jones family from the 19th century through to the 1980s. Princess Margaret, who was married to Anthony Armstrong-Jones, Viscount Linley and First Earl of Snowdon, spent many weekends here, particularly while Lord Snowdon, in his then role as Constable of Caernarfon Castle, was organising the investiture of Prince Charles as Prince of Wales in 1963.

In the 1980s, the family leased out the house as a nursing home, before it was converted to a hotel in the 1990s. The current owners have been running it as Plas Dinas Country House, a 5 star country house hotel, since the mid 2000s.
