Welcome to Llancaiach Fawr

COVID 19 UPDATE 21/12/2020

Due to the latest government announcement the Manor House, Gift Shop and Visitor Centre will remain closed until further notice.

Stay home, Stay Safe

COVID UPDATE 03/12/2020

In line with the latest guidelines issued by the Welsh Government, the Manor house will be closed to visitors from 5pm Friday 4th December 2020.

However the gift shop, café and Conservatory Restaurant will continue to welcome guests. Our opening hours will remain as 10:00 – 16:00 Tuesday – Sunday each week. 

Regrettably, we will not be able to serve alcohol for consumption on the premises until the current restrictions on sales are lifted.
We have taken measures to ensure that our Gift shop, Café and Restaurant are safe environments for our team and guests.  We look forward to welcoming you.

Yn unol â'r canllawiau diweddaraf gan Lywodraeth Cymru, bydd y Maenordy ar gau i ymwelwyr o 5pm ddydd Gwener 4 Rhagfyr 2020.
Fodd bynnag, bydd y siop anrhegion, y caffi a'r Bwyty Gwydr yn parhau i groesawu gwesteion. Ni fydd yr oriau agor yn newid – sef dydd Mawrth i ddydd Sul, 10:00–16:00, bob wythnos.

Gwaetha'r modd, ni fyddwn ni'n gallu gweini alcohol i'w yfed ar y safle nes bod y cyfyngiadau cyfredol ar werthiannau yn cael eu codi.
Rydyn ni wedi cymryd camau i sicrhau bod y siop anrhegion, y caffi a'r bwyty yn amgylcheddau diogel i'n tîm a'n gwesteion. Rydyn ni'n edrych ymlaen at eich croesawu chi.

COVID-19 Update 23/10/2020

We will be closing our doors for the duration of the Circuit Break period in line with Welsh Government guidelines, 5pm Friday 23rd October to November the 9th.  We look forward to welcoming you back after this short break. In the meantime, stay home, stay safe.
Thank you
