Plas y Dduallt is steeped in history and folklore. Literally translated it means the “house on the black hillside”. The estate agent said the name was taken from the dark-coloured rock nearby. A local historian has ascribed a more sinister meaning to “black” whereby people would not willingly cross this land unless they had to and certainly not after dark!
For several hundred years the house was home to the Llwyds (Lloyds) who were direct descendants of Llywelyn the Great.
Plas y Dduallt is one of the oldest inhabited houses in Wales dating back to the 15th century. Set high up in the Snowdonia National Park this spectacular grade II listed building borders the Ffestiniog Mountain Railway and the Maentwrog Nature Reserve.
