Plas Tan y Bwlch
Plas Tan y Bwlch is the Snowdonia National Park Environmental Studies Centre, administered by the National Park Authority. The Centre aims to provide courses which are of interest to all lovers of the countryside who would like to know about this fascinating area of Wales.
Plas Tan y Bwlch occupies a superb position overlooking the valley of the river Dwyryd in the heart of the National Park. No part of the Park is more than an hour’s drive away and some of the most spectacular scenery in Britain is within easy reach. From the heights of Snowdon, Cadair Idris and the bleak moors of Migneint, the hills stretch down through secluded valleys with their wooded slopes and placid lakes down to the sea. Among them are many places of great botanical, geological and historical interest, and these are the raw materials of the courses which are organised for you at the Study Centre.
