Due to concerns over the further spread of Coronavirus and the well-being of our visitors, we regret to report that all Cadw unstaffed monuments and car parks will be closed from 5pm Monday 23 March until further notice. We do look forward to inviting people to once again enjoy these outstanding monuments as soon as we are able.
From timber to stone
The substantial white-painted stone building we see before us today was originally a timber-framed house probably built in the 14th century (it’s recorded as Bodiordderch, the ‘House of Iordderch’, in 1352). It was later encased in stone and saw modification and restoration in the 19th and late 20th centuries, though its medieval layout remains. It passed through the hands of important local families – the Norres and the Bulkeleys – and by 1585 was described as a (summer) dairy house or hafoty.
After a distance of 0.75 miles parking can be found on the right hand side of the lane by way of a rough pull in, just before the farm entrance lane to the left.
