Overview

A magnificent Grade 1 Listed 17th Century Jacobean Mansion brought back to its former glory. The recent restoration has enabled us a fascinating chance to truly step back in time.Built in 1610, this stunning house has over 400 years of history; deaths, dirty deeds, suicides, it has seen the lot! It is a former court house for the "Hanging Judge Jeffreys" and it is said some of his victims still haunt the house!The house is open for tours on a Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday at 2pm & 3pm. It is said to be the most haunted house in Wales so for those who dare, come and join the Paranormal team on a Saturday night on a hunt for the spirits that inhabit the house!

I feel the negative reviews of this place are really unjust. If you want paranormal, watch Derek Acorah get 'possessed'. The house is fantastic and the effort that has gone into repairing it is incredible. The tour was wonderful. Thank you very much!

My fiancé and I visited Plas Teg last weekend and sad to say, it wasn't up to expectations. The exterior of the house is lovely but it was too cold inside. The owner, Cornelia Bailey, was a weird one who kept giving us the side...More

Fantastic and really special house. Very homely and very interesting. Not the usual sanitised National Trust property. Good, friendly and knowledgeable tour guide and well worth the admission price. Not many houses like this around. Loved it.

A very interesting old house - restored after a fashion although only the original Jacobean staircase remains. The house is extremely cluttered with the present owner's apparently obsessive desire to purchase antique items. However, this does add to the quirkiness and charm, as does her...More

Absolutely amazing house. It's unbelievable to think it was once a ruin and was saved and restored by one wonderful lady for future generations to enjoy.
