Penegoes (Machynlleth.

Plas Dolguog was a large, early 17th century manor house, now a hotel, with Victorian extensions. The present house was built for the Herbert family in 1632 and the first known occupant was William Herbert (brother of Richard Herbert, Lord of Cherbury), who inherited it from their father, Edward Herbert. It descended to Francis Herbert, a Royalist during the Civil War who suffered financially for his loyalty to King Charles and by the 18th century to leadmines owner Sir John Edwards, MP for Montgomery Boroughs. In 1846, the house passed by the marriage of Mary Cornelia Edwards, daughter of Sir John, to George Henry Vane-Tempest, later the 5th Marquess of Londonderry. The property remained in the ownership of the Vane-Tempest family until it was sold to Dr C. V. Lewis in 1951.[1] It is now a country house hotel.
