Coedmore 877

Cilgerran, Wales

Brief Description

Coedmore features an early-19th-century house surrounded by a garden laid out in Picturesque style. A layout of paths, steps and bridges is set within extensive woodland on the steep flanks of the dramatic Teifi valley. Within the woodland is a curious, older enclosed garden with a ruined summerhouse. There is also a view of Cilgerran Castle from the house and garden.

History

The current house was probably built between 1816 and 1833. Parts of the surrounding grounds probably relate to an earlier house that was situated west of the present mansion.
