Terraces appear to have formed part of the C18 layout at Plas Tan y bwlch, though the detail of this construction is likely to be contemporary with the later C19 remodelling of the house, when the line of the terrace was extended to the east. During repairwork, evidence of substantial stables was uncovered and recorded.
Retaining wall to terrace, forming low rubble wall at terrace level, with moulded copings, and piers with shallow pyramidal caps. Steps lead down to the garden at S and W. At the E, a low wall separates the terrace from the entrance-driveway: rubble with ashlar coping, and decorative iron-railing between piers with moulded cappings. There is a fine pair of iron-work gates giving access to either side of the terrace. A small gardener's hut, stone-built in the gothic style, lies adjacent to its eastern corner.
Listed as an integral part of the architecture of Plas Tan y bwlch, and an essential element in the setting of the house.
