Plas Brondanw is a small mansion from the 16th and 17th centuries, in North Meirionydd. This is the main house of the Brondanw Estate, given to Clough Williams-Ellis by his father in 1908. Clough later became famous for building the village of Portmeirion, but the gardens and landscape around Brondanw are just as typical of his style, but on a more intimate scale. The house and gardens are now in the care of the Clough Williams-Ellis Foundation (YCWEF), and much more information about their activities can be found on their website:
The house is open Wednesday – Sunday 10:30-4:00 all year round, also on Bank Holidays, but closed between Christmas and New Year.
The garden is open every day, year ‘round 10-4. When the cafe is closed payment is via an honesty box on the back of the gate.
The cafe is open from Easter until the end of September, 10-4, Tuesday until Sunday.
