Llanbedrog Information - Plas Glyn y Wedw


Oriel "Plas Glyn y Weddw"

This dower house, was built around 1856-57 for Lady Elizabeth Love Jones Parry of the Madryn Estate. The structure is a superb Victorian Gothic mansion (listed Grade II*).

It has long been associated with art as it was purpose built to house the widow’s own art collection. With its magnificent Jacobean staircase, hammer beam roof and 10 airy gallery spaces, it rightly bears the name Gallery in the Vale of the Widow (now of course known as Oriel Plas Glyn y Weddw). Supposedly Lady Love Jones Parry’s ghost is occasionally seen walking the upper landings.

Events and Exhibitions - to see whtas on have a look at their web site What's On - it's the perfect location to view and buy contemporary Welsh art, enjoy an outdoor theatre performance or just simply sample one of their delicious home-made cakes. Unique in Wales, this cultural haven is owned and run by an independent charitable trust, is largely self financing and attracts well in excess of 100,000 annual visitors. Come up and visit next time you are in the area - www.oriel.org.uk

Events at the John Andrews Amphitheatre - have a look here these range from plays, to outdoor cinema "Starry Nights" - Theatre - What's On

Caffi'r Oriel Ystafell De / Tea Room - Current a conservatory is attached to the Plas and this provides the location for Caffi'r Oriel tea room which serves freshly cooked breakfast and a variety of light lunches together with a selection of cakes and various biscuits - all cooked and prepared on site. The location is quite unique providing unrivalled views of Cardigan Bay from the tea room and this, together with the undeniable quality of the food being served ensures that visitors return again and again to savour the atmosphere and taste the food. The tea room seats up to 36 and provides an ideal location to hold parties or private functions also - by arrangement with the Oriel, wedding functions may be held there. On these occasions the Oriel itself provides space to seat up to 80 guests. Whatever your requirements therefore, we can assure you of a warm welcome. We look forward to seeing you! - see www.oriel.org.uk

There are plans to knock this down and move the cafe to the rear of the building in a purpose built site - watch this space.

 

In 2017 the Plas bought the shop at the bottom of the hill by the National Trust car park - which now sells arts and crafts as well as drinks, food, beach "stuff", tea and coffee and of course a local Welsh Maid ice-cream - so stock up from here before going down to the beach, much cheaper and quality local produce.
