Llanerchaeron is an 18th century estate with house, gardens and farm near Aberaeron in Ceredigion in Wales.
Set in the Aeron Valley, the house belonging to the estate was built in the 1790s and designed by John Nash. Some of the original architectural features on display include lots of symmetry, the use of false windows, curved walls and original cornices. The house came with it’s own laundry, brewery, salting house and dairy. The owners prior to the National Trust were keen hunters leading to a number of taxidermy items being on display in the house. There are also a number of display cabinets showing items from the Pamela Ward collection.
The walled gardens are very similar to how they would have been 200 years ago growing lots of fruit, vegetables and herbs, which go on sale in the shop when ready. There is also an example of an original heated flued wall with chimney in the garden. Some of the restored glasshouses date from the 1800s and there is also the remains of a 1950s concrete glasshouse. The wider pleasure grounds include an ornamental lake, woodland and riverside walks. Walking trails available to download from the National Trust.
The farm on the estate is run as a working organic farm with rare breed livestock including Welsh Black cattle and during the school holidays there are daily activities to observe such as butter making, sheepdog demonstrations and foraging. There is also the Geler Jones collection of items from rural Welsh life on display with machinery, tools and artefacts and including a working steam engine (open Wednesdays and Fridays).
