Llwyn Celyn is a medieval hall house in the Black Mountains. It was built in 1420 and is rich in medieval features, having barely changed since 1690.

Restored by The Landmark Trust, it is now available for holiday lettings.

Food and landscape-themed events, including medieval cookery and art displays will be held across the Open Days. See www.landmarktrust.org.uk/news-and-events/upcoming-events/

The Open Days are free. History sheets will be provided for you to learn more about the property and its renovation.

Some events require reservations to be made via the website: www.landmarktrust.org.uk/news-and-events/upcoming-events/ or by emailing llwyncelyn@landmarktrust.org.uk

Address - Cwmyoy, Abergavenny, Monmouthshire, NP7 7NE.

Directions - from M4 take A40 to Abergavenny. Before you reach Abergavenny, take A465 signposted to Hereford. After approximately 5 miles turn left onto a narrow road, which is signposted Llanvihangel Crucorney, Llanthony, and has a brown tourist sign towards Llanthony Priory. Follow this road past Pen-y-dre Farm, St Michael’s Church and a garage. At the Skirid Inn, turn left (following a second brown sign to Llanthony Priory). You quickly reach a T junction, but keep following your road around to the left. You’ll pass under a railway bridge and then Lower Stanton Farm on your left. As you carry on up the road you’ll pass a red postbox and a village noticeboard on your right-hand side and then a crescent of white houses. Just beyond the crescent of houses opposite the last property on the right, take a left turn up a single track lane which will take you to Llwyn Celyn.

From Hereford - travel southward along the A465. After approximately 18 miles take a right-hand turning into a narrow road, signposted Llanvihangel Crucorney and Llanthony and a brown signpost for Llanthony Priory. Follow the road round and then just before The Skirid Inn turn right (following a second brown sign to Llanthony Priory). You quickly reach a T junction, but keep following your road around to the left. You’ll pass under a railway bridge and then Lower Stanton Farm on your left. Parking will be signposted from here.

For those who have mobility issues, you can drive and drop off at the property - cars must then be moved to the main car park.

There are awkward and steep stairs inside the property.
