Llanerchaeron is a fine example of a late eighteenth century Welsh country estate. The villa at the heart of the estate was designed and built by John Nash (circa 1794) and is the most complete example of his early work in existence.


The villa and servants’ courtyard had been neglected for most of the second half of the twentieth century, and a significant amount of highly skilled conservation and restoration work was necessary to save the building from decaying further. Insensitive adaptations that had compromised Nash’s design were rectified and the house restored to its former glory. The house is open to the public.


The villa, servants’ wing and service courtyard are listed Grade I, and is owned by The National Trust.
