Llanerchaeron villa
This National Trust property is nationally important as it is a Nash design, Grade I listed and has remained unaltered since 1795, when it was established as a self-sufficient farming estate complex.

It was designed and built, around an earlier stone house, for a Major (later Colonel) William Lewis by John Nash (the pre-eminent architect of Regency London famous for All Souls church, Langham Place, The Theatre Royal, Haymarket, parts of Buckingham Palace, Clarence House, Marble Arch, and Welsh born himself).

Subsequent owners of Llanerchaeron villa, farm and estate simply allowed the whole complex to languish out of use - rather than remodelling, adapting or demolishing - in essence almost freezing the whole estate in time.

It was only bequeathed to the National Trust in 1989 by Mr. John Powell Ponsonby Lewes, the last of ten generations of the same family to have lived here.
