About Y Plas
Guests who visited Y Plas included the Prince of Wales, later King Edward VII. The extensive grounds were landscaped according to changing fashions. Decorative gates and two lodges were installed at the entrance when the site was enlarged in 1853.
In 1995 Montgomeryshire council began a £2.5m renovation of the mansion, to create a Celtic-themed visitor attraction called Celtica. The council was abolished in 1996. In 2006 Powys County Council closed the attraction, which had never attracted enough visitors.
In 2008 the building, known as Y Plas, was acquired by Machynlleth Town Council. It now offers office and conference facilities, and a 250-seat community hall. The town council's chamber and office is also situated in Y Plas. Restaurant
Set in its own beautiful parkland and overlooked by rolling Hills.
