This superbly restored gentry manor house is no ordinary heritage attraction. History here is tangible. The costumed servants of the house are living and working in 1645 and allow you to share and engage in their world. Fires crackle, candles flicker and the sounds and smells of domestic life make your visit a memorable experience of the past. It takes a moment to attune your ear to the unfamiliar speech within the Manor itself, but within seconds of your warm welcome you become immersed in the time of the Civil Wars and the cares and concerns of ordinary people living in extraordinary times.

I have visited Llancaiach Fawr on a few occasions. Some time for meetings in the function rooms. Also for family days out and fun events. Good gift shop. Restaurant and parking. Well worth a visit.

A truly authentic Manor House. The staff are amazing, dressing in the clothes of the time, and addressing visitors as guests of 'his Lordship'. Very informative and interesting afternoon.
