History

Gregynog is an ancient site and there is a record of a house there in the 12th century.William Emes produced proposals for the garden in the late-18th century, some of which were carried out. Henry Avray Tipping worked on the gardens in the early-20th century and Dame Sylvia Crowe in the late-20th century.The current house was rebuilt twice in the 19th century. In 1920 it became the home of the artistic patrons Gwendoline and Margaret Davies, who bequeathed it to the University of Wales in 1960.
