Important information 

We’re pleased to say that a number of our places in Wales are now open and can't wait to welcome you this summer. From Saturday 7 August, Wales is moving to Alert Level Zero of the coronavirus regulations and we will be making some changes to adapt to the regulations. You no longer need pre book to visit many of our places in Wales, however booking remains essential at some of our small properties, including Dolaucothi, Plas yn Rhiw and Tudor Merchant House. Please check the website for property specific information before visiting.
