Are dogs allowed? 

Dogs are not allowed on-site, with the exception of assistance dogs.

We are often asked about the reason for Portmeirion & Castell Deudraeth's no-dogs-allowed policy. One primary reason for the rule is the conflict pets (particularly dogs) produce in natural areas used as wildlife habitat and also used by people for recreation. Portmeirion's natural areas are managed in a way that protects habitat for a wide variety of wildlife species. Dogs, by nature, can damage sensitive habitats as well as harass or kill vulnerable wildlife. The no-dogs policy is also applied to protect the many people who may be picnicking, walking, swimming or relaxing in the grounds.

A dogs-on-leash rule used in the past proved ineffective because many people disregard the policy. We have also found that a few pet owners do not take the responsibility to pick up pet waste. Patrolling park grounds to assure that dogs are under control, contacting those who are not being responsible with their pet and cleaning up after pets to assure a safe visitor environment was an inefficient use of limited staff time.

With the exception of assistance dogs, Portmeirion will continue its policy of excluding pets from the village and its grounds to help assure a quality visitor experience and help protect natural resources at Portmeirion.

The company policy regarding dogs includes the village, woodlands, farmland, Castell Deudraeth, estate cottages and gardens. The policy does not affect any statutory rights of way, bridle paths, public footpaths or access to these areas.

Is Portmeirion suitable for Disabled Visitors? 

The village contains many  slopes and steps and it is therefore not ideally suited to anyone with restricted mobility.

Some of the rooms and cottages are only accessible via steps.

We do have rooms specially suited for disabled use. Both Hotel and Castell Deudraeth have lifts.

Castell Deudraeth has no steps on the ground floor.

We have wheelchairs available for loan and designated blue badge parking areas.

For full details please see our Accessibility Guide.

Where is the car park? 

We have ample parking space right by The Village entrance.

We do not charge a parking fee.

There is dedicated disabled parking close to the entrance.

All rooms and cottages in The Village have a designated parking space as close as possible to the accommodation.

Portmeirion is owned by a registered charity called Ymddiriedolaeth Clough Williams-Ellis Foundation.
