Portmeirion

Portmeirion

On its own private peninsula overlooking sand, sea and mountains. It carries the appearance of a Tuscan Italian village.

Portmeirion

This unique village is set on its own private peninsula on the southern shores of Snowdonia. It was created by Welsh architect Clough Williams-Ellis in 1925 to demonstrate how a naturally beautiful place could be developed without spoiling it. Aside from its iconic architecture, scenic surroundings and vast woodland gardens, Portmeirion is home to hip hotels, a huddle of historic cottages, a spa and award winning restaurants.

 

Portmeirion is made up of about 50 buildings most of which are used as hotel or self-catering accommodation and surrounded by 70 acres of sub-tropical woodland gardens.

 

The village has several cafes including a self-service restaurant, tea rooms, Angel Ices plus the Castell Deudraeth and the Hotel Portmeirion. It is advisable to pre-book a table if wishing to dine at the hotel.

 

The Prisoner

It really is unique. For a start, it’s a complete village of architecturally amazing buildings set on its own private peninsula overlooking sand, sea and mountain. It was the creation of iconoclast and architect Sir Clough Williams-Ellis, who populated his make-believe village with Italianate, oriental and Tudor-style buildings. Reality and unreality are blurred to such an extent that Portmeirion is forever remembered as the setting - make that the star - of The Prisoner, the baffling 1960s TV series that has become a cult worldwide.

 

In the middle of it all, like a presiding bejewelled potentate, sits waterfront Hotel Portmeirion, whose beguiling, eclectic character matches that of its surroundings.

Decoration and furnishings in its glittering rooms are based on many disparate influences and themes. There’s the Mirror Room, for example, with floor-to-ceiling gilt-framed mirrors. Throughout you’ll see artefacts and antiques brought from as far afield as China. The curvilinear art deco dining room is a stunning space designed to convey the atmosphere of a grand ocean liner. At high tide it seems almost to be afloat, an impression enhanced by the stone ship permanently moored outside (Sir Clough liked a joke)!
