The Brondanw Estate lies within the Snowdonia National Park, between Snowdon and the sea, North Wales.
Plas Brondanw is the principal house on the estate and is set amongst Clough Williams-Ellis’s exquisite gardens.
“It had been at about my twenty-fifth birthday that my father unexpectedly handed over to me the control of the old (Williams) family property of Plas Brondanw which I would ultimately inherit,” wrote Clough Williams-Ellis. “Gradually but surely the old house and its rehabilitation became my chief absorbing interest outside my profession.”
The estate was enlarged when Clough bought two adjoining mountainous properties threatened by mining, the Estate has never been bought or sold and is now owned by a charitable trust, The Clough William-Ellis Foundation, for its protection
The gardens are open to the public with tours and events taking place throughout the open season.
“Williams-Ellis started with a beautiful site and fashioned a layout that confronts the lovely natural landscape, drawing its beauties into the heart of the garden.”
