Lovingly restored using traditional building techniques, Llwynaumawr is believed to date back pre 1650 and was originally a pair of farm houses built a horse and carts width apart. Over time the houses have been extended and modified and more recently linked together as a requirement of a planning condition when the current owners started renovations.

Steeped in history the properties have had a variety of uses including a Welsh speaking School for adults, hayloft and an apple and pear pressing facility.

Now a fabulous home, boasting lots of original features that include extensive use of oak for mullion windows, screens, doors and floors, exposed stone walls and flag stone floors. There are also two inglenook fireplaces with bread ovens and wood burning stoves, a mural staircase and further stone staircases.
