Stay at Plas Isa and explore the hidden treasures of south Snowdonia this autumn

September 2nd 2020

Nature will soon starting to change its colours and that’s a great time to explore the hidden treasures in the Mawddach estuary and beyond.

With the glorious sunshine over the Bank Holiday weekend, it’s easily forgotten that there are also rainy days. There is a reason for the mountains of Wales to be so lush and green.

We can’t guarantee good weather during your stay but we have everything you need to get you dry and warm again if you do get wet. Plas Isa is a clean and cosy house with a drying room, plenty of drying racks, stacks of old newspapers to stuff your boots and fantastic hot showers. Your well deserved pint (or hot chocolate) in one of our local pubs, is only a short stroll away.

So don’t let the weather put you off and come to Snowdonia this autumn.
