Portmeirion Off The Beaten Path: 2 reviews and 5 photos
Clough Williams-Ellis lived not far from Portmeirion, at his home at Plas Brondanw. This garden can also be visited although we were a bit disappointed with it - seemed a bit neglected and small, rather overpriced for its £3 entry price (money to be left in an honesty box at the gate). The money goes towards upkeep of the gardens - its needed!. The house itself is not open to the public. There were leaftelet advertising it at Portmerion and somebody had mentioned it to us at our hotel that morning too so we were misled into thinking it was worth a visit.. Much quieter than Portmeirion - indeed we were there only ones visiing when we arrived. Really 30 minutes here is more than ample. A you enter a statue of a helmeted fireman holding a hose that is a fountain can be seen.
Plas Brondanw is located at Carreg Llanfrothen. Take the A4085 road from the center of Penrhyndeudraeth towards Beddgelert. Then take a right turn to Croesor (beyond the B4410 crossroad) past a gatehouse archway, following the signposts. The gardens are through double gates on the left about 200 yards up the hill. They are open daily from 9am-5pm.
