The site at Llwyn Celyn
A medieval hall house in the Black Mountains
Located in the Llanthony Valley on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park, Llwyn Celyn is regarded as one of the most remarkable of all surviving late-medieval houses in Wales. It was built in 1420, a few years after Owain Glyndŵr's revolt against the Kingdom of England. The site came to us as a rundown farm, with water coursing from the hillside through the main house which had been protected by emergency scaffolding since the early 1990s.
A £4.2million restoration (with £2.5million raised by National Lottery players) has returned the house to its former glory, ensuring its survival for generations to come. In Landmark's care, Llwyn Celyn will never again fall into disrepair.
