Carreglwyd 690

Llanfeathlu, Wales

Brief Description

The ornamental wooded gardens and grounds at Carreglwyd are focused on an informal lake in front of the house. They largely retain a 19th-century layout but incorporate 18th-century elements. The parkland includes a silted up lake of ecological interest. The house is now a venue for events and conferences, and the grounds are open to the public in the spring.

History

Dr William Griffiths built a house at Carreglywd in 1634 which was remodelled by Mary Trygarn Griffiths in the second half of the 18th century. In the mid-19th century the property passed to a branch of the Carpenter family, who still live there now. There has been considerable renovation of the house in the late-20th century.
