Llancaiach Fawr Manor

Meet the characters of 1645 when you step inside the Manor House, the servants will tell you many a story of life in the 17th Century and the gossip of the time.

When Civil War broke out between King and Parliament in 1642 Colonel Edward Prichard was appointed Commissioner of Array to the King, raising men and money for the Royalist cause in Glamorganshire.

By the middle of 1645 support was waning and King Charles I came on a rallying tour through South Wales and visited Llancaiach Fawr for lunch on 5th August. Shortly afterwards the Prichards and many other Glamorgan gentry changed sides to support Parliament and Colonel Prichard subsequently defended Cardiff Castle against the Royalists.

Today visitors can enjoy a visit to the Manor House gardens, newly installed interactive exhibition, gift shop, cafe and Conservatory Restaurant. Light lunches and snacks are available in the cafe Tuesday – Sunday and Sunday lunch is available every Sunday in the Conservatory Restaurant.

Visit our website for information on various events throughout the year.

In a poll Llancaiach Fawr was named as one of the Top Ten most haunted buildings in Britain. Strange things have been experienced in almost every room, along corridors and upon stairs. Things seen, heard or felt, or sometimes odours in the air of violets or lavender – and on some occasions, roast beef! Ghost Tours are available from October to March, early booking recommended.
