Plas Esgair is a Grade II listed Georgian mansion in an idyllic location with outstanding views. Home, renovation project and grand country house B & B.
'Plas Esgair' literally translates to 'Long Ridge Hall' (in English PLAS, a hall or mansion; ESGAIR, a long ridge)
Cadw records show Plas Esgair was first built in 1780 and then enlarged between 1820 and 1830 and the verandah added but the date 1755 is carved into the stonework so it was probably first built slightly earlier. Click HERE to go to our History page.
The house sits in its own grounds of approximately 6 acres approached by a long driveway from the road, approximately 1/2 a mile north of Llan church.
It is Grade II listed because it is "a well preserved gentry house in an area where such social distinctions are rare".
Plas Esgair is situated on the well known walking routes of the Glyndwr’ s Way, and the Cambrian Way. For cyclists the Sustrans Cycle Route 8 known as the Lôn Las Cymru, as well as the Great Dragon Ride, are nearby. For horse riders the William Morgan Way and the Prince Llewellyn Way are on the doorstep.
This page will initially be used for friends and anyone else who is interested to keep track of our adventure at Plas Esgair. I'll try to post updates as we renovate the house bit by bit.
