Plas Uchaf is an imposing early 18th century brick house set on the lower slopes of Llwyn Bryn-Dinas providing a spectacular backdrop to the house. Plas Uchaf means "the place above" which is perfect for our house on the hill. The house is set in six acres of grounds and is arranged over three floors, all offering splendid views of rolling fields and pastures studded with mature oaks and conifers rising from the Tanat valley. In the past Plas Uchaf has been used as a dower house, a vicarage and a residential home.
