Llanerchaeron - A local national trust propertyWhy not visit Llanerchaeron during your stay at Caerwenfor, Llanerchaeron is a rare example of a self-sufficient 18th-century Welsh minor gentry estate.

 The villa, designed in the 1790s, is the most complete example of the early work of John Nash.

It has its own service courtyard with

  • dairy,
  • laundry,
  • brewery and salting house and
  • walled kitchen gardens (with all its produce for sale when in season).

The pleasure grounds and ornamental lake and parkland provide peaceful walks. The Home Farm complex has an impressive range of traditional, atmospheric outbuildings and is a working organic farm with Welsh Black cattle, Llanwenog sheep and rare Welsh pigs.  During the months of June and July (usually on a Thursday) the National Trust offer a guided tour of the property.  Why not take a stroll around the property with a guide, discover more about the history of the building, the estate, the family that once owned the property and discover the beautiful Aeron valley

The National Trust also have many events taking place at Llanerchaeron, the midsummer herb festival on the 25th of June 2011 gives visitors the opportunity of experiencing talks, dyeing and distilling demonstrations, details of remedies and household hints, refreshments and much more.
