Attraction details
Type: Castles, Historic Sites, Landmarks/ Points of Interest, Cultural
Owner description: 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.

Lllancaiach Fawr Manor hosted Juan Loronzo, the best Elvis I have ever seen on Friday 12th December. The evening kicked off with the nicest chicken and chips served to our table and then we rocked all night long. Juan finished off with a few Christmas classics - not from his Elvis repertoire. At £13.50 this was excellent value for money.... More

We really enjoyed our escorted trip around the house. The staff were dressed up in 17th century costumes and told us some really good stories about the period. The cream tea was amazing with three tiers of tasty sandwiches, cream scones and little cakes. We were thoroughly spoilt!

We went to Llancaiach Fawr on a bit of a off chance. Despite it being relatively local we'd never been there. Staff were informative and it was an enjoyable hour or two out. I don't know if I'd visit again, but it was certainly worth seeing.

Its a very interesting house and parts are being refurbed. We will definatley go back in the summer to look around the gardens. The tea was delicious, sandwiches, cakes of... More

What a lovely time 'twas spent in the Manor House, truth be told. Kindly servants showed us hospitality, did they not. The master and mistress allowed us entry to their abode allowing us to meander through their home and learn about their life in1645. Enjoyed every minute of it and the afternoon tea topped off a great Sunday outing. Will... More
