An eighteenth century Welsh estate on the River Aeron with walled gardens. The house was designed and built for Colonel William Lewis by John Nash in the early part of his career. The estate was bequeathed to the National Trust in 1989 by one of Colonel William's descendents. There is a kitchen garden and lake.
This is a marvelous place to visit. Just down the road from where we live and it is a local treasure. One cautionary word. Take a packed lunch as the two old people running the food concession are not on 'top of their game' and its not very good, but very expensive. We have got the country's best fish and chip shop in Aberaeron (the Celtic).
You will struggle to find a better house and gardens anywhere. A true gem
Llanerchaeron is a small gentleman's villa.
The garden is a huge vegetable patch with a lake you can walk around. So don't expect beautiful plants or the latest word in garden design.
There is also a farm, servants area.
It will be on few peoples list of great properties but it is a very pleasant place to visit.
A first class day out. We visted not knowing what to expect and were blown away. The house servants area, farm and garden were excellent. The garden is managed by one person and volunteers with the emphasis on vegetable production. These are sold in the reception building you can also buy meat from the farm. We bought some pork and red currants which my better half showed how tasty real pork is. I will definatley be back with the gardening club. Not at all like a National Trust property much better.
