The peaceful, rural setting of Llancaiach Fawr Manor gives no clue to the turmoil of its early years nor to the exciting Living History it now portrays.

Built in 1530 for Dafydd ap Richard it was designed to be easily defended during the turbulent reigns of Tudor kings and queens.

By the start of the Stuart dynasty the Prichards had prospered and the house was extended in 1628 to demonstrate their status

When Civil War broke out between King and Parliament in 1642 Colonel Prichard was actively involved in raising men and money for the Royalist cause in Glamorganshire.

Caerphilly Castle

Wern Ganol provides accommodation close to the Caerphilly Castle, South Wales.

Caerphilly Castle is one of the great medieval castles of western Europe.

Several factors give it this pre-eminence - its immense size (1.2h), making it the largest in Britain after Windsor, its large-scale use of water for defence and the fact that it is the first truly concentric castle in Britain.

Of the time of its building in the late 13th century, it was a revolutionary masterpiece of military planning.
