The Mansion dates from the late 1600's when it was parochial Welsh farmhouse. Since the 1700s it was expanded by a French family who made it the estate it is today. When people hear the word 'estate' they think of stately homes but the family who built it used it as a working farm also forging their own tools and mining their own resources as a totally self-sufficient rural estate. To this day we manage the estate in much the same way with a working farm, traditional orchard and large vegetable garden. On roughly 220 acres we are an ideal location for groups of family or friends who have the option to stay in one of our self-catering cottages situated in a micro-village in the midst of our farm with ducks, geese, chickens, peafowl and pigs. The accommodation is rustic yet comfortable with loads of character.
In the main house we provide bed & breakfast accommodation. There are four spacious double/family bedrooms, two with en-suite bath/shower & toilet and two with en-suite shower & toilet. The lounge boasts a welcoming log fire in the Winter time, a baby-grand piano and a television with DVD player. Tea & coffee is always available. We are situated under a dark sky area so without the drone of urban noises or glaring lights you can be assured of a peaceful night's sleep. Our breakfast menu is traditional British B&B with the heartiest plate portion being the Welsh full breakfast. Breakfast is served from 8am onwards. If you require an earlier breakfast we always have available cereal and toast.
