Lonely Planet review
Until the 1980s this large 17th-century house belonged to Lord Snowdon's family; his wife, Princess Margaret, often stayed here. Despite the ancestral photos in the hallway and the grand drawing room, the overall impression is surprisingly homey. The nine bedrooms are filled with antiques and thoughtful touches (Moulton Brown toiletries, fluffy bathrobes). It's set amid extensive grounds off the A487, 2 miles south of Caernarfon.
