Hotel & Accommodation

On the southern edge of Snowdonia National Park, just five miles from the coastal village of Aberdyfi, the Macdonald Plas Talgarth Health & Leisure Club in Pennal has a welcoming atmosphere and the air of being a small village in its own right thanks to the accommodation in either the Mansion House apartments (sleeping up to four guests) or the lodges around the estate (sleeping up to eight). The hotel’s Y Garth Restaurant is open each evening from 7-9pm offering homemade food and locally sourced produce, which, as a result of its popularity, makes booking advisable. Equally, the Y Garth Bar is open daily from 11am-11pm and provides lunchtime bar meals and light snacks from 12-2pm on Monday to Saturday. Sunday lunches are a favourite, and in the evenings bar meals are available from 6-9pm.
