Braich Y Celyn Hall is a notable 400-year-old historic property which is believed to have previously been a farmhouse, with a third floor added in the Regency era.

Inside, the magnificent galleried hall creates a central point in the house and provides access to ground floor rooms including the sitting room, which spans the entirety of one gable, and benefits from two French windows letting in lots of natural light. The drawing room is also an attractive room for entertaining, and is built to make the most of its views out to the estuary.

The lower ground floor has a games room, wine cellar and game larder, while upstairs the master bedroom suite with its fine open fireplace lies on the first floor, as do two further double bedrooms. The second floor boasts three further bedrooms served by a family bathroom.

Accommodation in total comprises: entrance hall, kitchen/breakfast room, dining room, drawing room, games room, wine cellar, game larder, master bedroom suite, five further bedrooms and three further bathrooms.
