Having taken the wrong path I drove through manicured grounds that could have passed for being ecclesiastical and rounded the bend to see these ruins, Plas Crwn, once a manor house. The lane continued beyond to open out into a spectacular courtyard where there were horses, cats and dogs, and habited.

On return, I had to find out a bit more about this lovely place. The George family lived there in the C19th and Fanny Margaret George married Thomas Reece Thomas of Llanboidy c1796-1883. He was connected to the Willy family of Lampeter Velfrey and a surgeon of Haverfordwest. Their son was Tudor Vaughan Howell Thomas 1852-1906.
The 1907 OS map for Carmarthenshire XXXVi Sheet 16 lists an arboretum; woodland; shrubbery; lodge; gatehouse; haw haw; house; conservatory; walled garden; carriage drive and parkland LinkExternal link
I don't know when Plas Crwn fell into ruin.
