Llanerchydol Hall is a substantial country house in wonderful countryside in Powys. The property was originally built in the gothic revival style by a wealthy tea trader in 1776 but has been subsequently updated over the years. At one point the house was divided into two, but has undergone major restoration and refurbishment and is considered in very good order throughout as a single property.
The main part of the house is what was known as the East Wing, and has the formal entertaining rooms and bedroom suites which have high moulded ceilings, stunning marble fireplaces and polished floors, all centered around an impressive hallway.
A bay orangery connects the two parts of the property. The West Wing is more informal and has lots of charcter, including an old bakery and an observatory as well as the fantastic Victorian kitchen. There is a staff apartment to the rear of the house.
