LLANERCHAERON HOUSE – Ceredigion

Llanerchaeron is a national trust house from the 18th century and designed by the nationally distinguished architect John Nash. But it’s on a domestic scale with high quality restoration of its reception rooms, bedrooms and the “posh” side of the house, but it also has fascinating servants quarters, a brewery, fine kitchen and beautifully maintained gardens with apple trees still bearing fruit from when the house was built. There’s also a home farm being run in a sympathic way to National Trust aims. The entire house and farm nestles in a richly verdant valley – of the River Aeron – just inland from the vibrantly attractive town of Aberaeron which was created by Act of Parliament in 1807. Both town and the house merit a visit. This guide runs to 22 minutes.
