Information

The Grade II* listed red sandstone mansion at Plas Coch was first built in 1569 by London-based Anglesey lawyer Dafydd Llwyd. This was then extended in the 1590s by his son Hugh Hughes, Attorney General for North Wales. Further remodelling of the property was carried out in the 19th century by William Bulkeley Hughes MP.

In more recent times, the grounds have been home to a caravan park, and there was even a zoo there in the 1960s. In 2007 it was acquired by Talacre Beach Caravan Sales Ltd, now known as Plas Coch Holiday Homes Ltd, who invested £22m in transforming the site into a five-star holiday park featuring luxury lodges and static caravans, with the manor house as the centrepiece of the complex. The Welsh Assembly Government awarded a £100,000 grant for repairs to the run-down historic mansion in 2009 and in 2010 architects Donald Insall Associates completed a £9.5m contract to restore the house and build a glazed extension. The re-developed mansion now features a swimming pool, the Serenity Spa and the 1569 Restaurant.
