Llanllyr 2118

Ceredigion, Wales

Brief Description

This is an ancient site, where several phases of history are reflected in the layout of the grounds. These include a small park with unusual planting, a rare cob-walled kitchen garden of the early-19th century and interesting formal and informal gardens of the 1980s and 1990s within an early-19th century framework.

History

The estate had been in the Lewes family since 1720. In 1830 John Lewes demolished the old house and built most of the house which is the current principal building.
