Llanerchaeron is a rare survivor of a Welsh gentry estate. Set in the beautiful Dyffryn Aeron, the estate survived virtually unaltered into the 20th century and was bequeathed to the National Trust by J P Ponsonby Lewes in 1989. The house was designed by John Nash in 179496 and is the most complete example of his early work. Llanerchaeron was a self-sufficient estate evident in the dairy, laundry, brewery and salting house of the service courtyard, as well as the Home Farm buildings, from the stables to the threshing barns. The stable-yard flooring made of pitched stone for easy draining, was covered in grass and moss and recently restored. Today it is a working organic farm and the two restored walled gardens also produce home-grown fruit, vegetables and herbs. There are extensive walks around the estate and parkland.
