The Beast House

Discover Llwyn Celyn and the Llanthony Valley

The Beast House at Llwyn Celyn is an interpretation centre, offering insight into the rich history of the Llanthony Valley, together with information on the medieval Llwyn Celyn itself.

The interior of the Beast House in Wales, with wooden ceiling beams and interpretation panels.

Information panels, historic objects, audio recordings and vibrant contemporary artworks explore the local area and tell the story of Landmark's decade long restoration project. A mezzanine platform offers stunning views of the valley.

All of the items on display in the Beast House were found on site during the restoration project and together tell the story of the people of Llwyn Celyn through the objects they left behind.

The Beast House is open year-round, 7 days a week during daylight hours. Entry is free for all. Access is possible from many local footpaths, or by parking on the nearby Forest Coal Pit Road.

Accessibility information: Please note the Beast House contains uneven, cobbled, flooring and is accessed via a steep slope. There are stairs inside up to the first-floor mezzanine and a small staircase to the second interpretation room at the back of the building. All information inside the Beast House is available in both Welsh and English.
