Portmeirion – the brainchild of Sir Clough Williams-Ellis- was designed and built between 1925 and 1975 in the style of an Italian village. His vision was to build a village paying tribute to the atmosphere of the Mediterranean - some claim that it was based on Portofino. The main buildings of the hotel and the cottages were originally a private estate called Ice Estuary, built in the 1850’s. Williams-Ellis changed the name - Port to place it on the coast, Meirion from the county of Merioneth. He purchased Castell Deudraeth and its grounds in 1931 which added substantially to the size of the Portmeirion Estate but it was not until some years later that this was turned into the present hotel.
In the 21st Century you can enjoy eclectic shops and cafes including: Pot Jam Shop, The Prisoner Shop, The Golden Dragon Book shop and The Battery Square Coffee Shop.
