The present Plas Newydd, a Grade II listed building, in St Dogmaels, Pembrokeshire, was built around 1800 as a country retreat for Sir Watkin Lewes, Lord Mayor of London. It replaced the original property on the site which had been the home of the Parry family from the time of Queen Elizabeth the First.
The house and its gardens overlook the village of St Dogmaels, the town of Cardigan and the estuary of the river Teifi towards Cardigan Island.
Sheltered by the surrounding hills and situated to the north of the Preseli Mountains, St Dogmaels enjoys a pleasant micro climate.
There are no traffic jams, no traffic noise, Red Kites soar over the fields in front of the house and the gardens attract a host of smaller birds. In the Autumn, flocks of Canada Geese fly over the house in the morning and again in the evening.
Ideally situated for exploring Pembrokeshire and the Cardigan Bay area, our 5 star bed and breakfast accommodation provides peaceful and spacious facilities to enjoy your holiday.
The town of Cardigan on the other side of the river is 5 minutes drive away as is the beautiful beach at Poppit Sands.
