History of Borthwnog
The earliest records date Borthwnog Hall back to the 1670s, although it was heavily modified in the late 18th century and its façade is now recognisably Georgian. Borthwnog was the manor house of the estate that encompassed the adjacent Borth farm and land along the Taichynhaeaf valley and Bontddu. It now stands in 24 acres on the beautiful Mawddach estuary and, along with many of the buildings in the area, it has been listed as a grade II building.

Views from the house stretch more than six miles up the estuary to the sea at Barmouth, with the Cadair hills and Harlech dome rising on either side. The gardens extend to more than an acre and a half, and have a variety of flowers, trees and shrubs, as well as rich birdlife. The whole of the estuary is a site of special scientific interest.
