Details

Explore the home of authoress Kate Roberts and find out more about the fascinating history of this restored building.

Cae'r Gors is the childhood home of authoress Kate Roberts. She was born and raised in Rhosgadfan, a village situated near Dyffryn Nantlle, Caernarfon and Snowdonia, at the turn of the twentieth century, when the slate industry was at its most productive and industrious.

Little imagination is needed to envision what Cae'r Gors, the childhood home of Kate Roberts, was like at the beginning of the twentieth century. Depictions of rural life in the quarrying community of Rhosgadfan appear in her work frequently. Yet since April 2007, when the house was restored and the heritage centre built, we don't have to imagine; it is now possible to experience the living conditions of the period, to learn about the customs and traditions and examine household implements used at that time.

Members of the local history society will be there to show the public around, and a bilingual film about the life and work of Kate Roberts will also be shown.
