Using high-quality historical building restoration techniques and authentic period decoration and furnishings, Llancaiach Fawr endeavours to make the past seem like the present. The house has been restored to the appearance it had in 1645, during the time of it’s ownership by the Prichard family, aspiring minor gentry who came to prominence during the later half of the Civil War. Historic interpreters role-play the servants of the household in 1645, and greet daytime visitors.

We have working period kitchens with practical fireplaces, a formal 17th century Great Hall with adjacent principal rooms with finely preserved wooden panelling from 1628, fully furnished bedrooms, and accessible attics with authentically furnished servant’s quarters. Authentic and period-sympathetic lighting has recently been installed. There are period formal gardens surrounding the house, and historically accurate kitchen gardens and a small orchard. The house is set in an historical ‘bubble’- it is possible to create exterior views without seeing the modern world.
