Fodor's Review

This late-18th-century Welsh gentry estate in the Aeron Valley, 17 miles south of Aberystwyth, is a superb example of the early work of John Nash (1752–1835). Nash was the leading architect of the Regency period and the designer of Brighton's Royal Pavilion. The estate survived with few changes until the present; it is a self-contained world with stables, barns, a dairy, and a brewery. The walled gardens are particularly beautiful.
