- Plas yn Rhiw, Rhiw, Pwllheli, LL53 8AB, ☎ +44 1758 780219, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. Beautiful, though not large, National Trust property east of Aberdaron
- Penrhyn Castle, Bangor, LL57 4HN, ☎ +44 1248 353084, e-mail: email@example.com. National Trust - a mock-Norman edifice of the 19th century. Can be considered well over the top in the desire to impress but the kitchen quarters and the walled garden are particularly to be recommended.
- The Spinnies. Tow splendidly situated bird hides administered by the North Wales Wildlife Trust. Birds frequently seen include little egrets and kingfishers. Near the coast immediately east of Penrhyn Castle estate.
- Parc Glynllifon. Lord Newbrough's estate south of Caernarfon - the arboretum and a modern amphitheatre are particularly worth seeing.
