Tucked away in a remote corner of North Wales can be found a modest country house called Plas yn Rhiw. It must be one of the smaller ‘stately homes’ in the care of the National Trust. It’s right down on the Llyn Peninsula and boasts glorious views of the great, storm-tossed bay known as Porth y Neigwl (Hell’s Mouth). Inside, the house doesn’t seem to have changed since a group of eccentric old ladies lived in it in the 1930s. The radiators look like something out of a Flash Gordon movie: a series of enormous, deadly-looking valves. I was really impressed with their book collection, too.
The ghost of Plas yn Rhiw isn’t mentioned in the guide book. There is only one record of it, in fact, a book of ‘True Ghost Stories’ published in 1936. The account, though, comes from a reliable witness first-hand. It’s well worth a read: http://www.uncannyuk.com/641/ghost_of_plas_yn_rhiw/
