An impressive moated Manor House Listed Grade II* occupying a tranquil rural position Description Plas Newydd is a fine moated manor house and listed Grade II* being of both historical and architectural importance. Whilst the site supported an earlier house the current property dates from 1632 and was commissioned by Thomas Glynne who had been appointed High Sheriff of Caernarfonshire in 1626. The history of the house is well documented passing from Thomas Glynne to his brother John Glynne who was Lord Chief Justice under Cromwell. The property was tenanted during the 18th century and was extensively re-modelled by Francis Wynne at the end of the 19th century before passing to the Newborough family who subsequently sold the property after the Second World War.
