Cwmmau Farmhouse
Cwmmau Farmhouse
An early 17th century timber-framed farmhouse and farm buildings, an excellent example of a vernacular 'black-and-white' building. The farmhouse was rescued from deriliction by the owner, who bequeathed it to the National Trust in 1965, with a wish that it be preserved for the nation as an example of a typical Welsh farmhouse building (even though the farm is actually across the border in Herefordshire).
The farmhouse was built in the early 17th century, with late 17th century rebuilding. It is two stories high, with attic and cellar rooms. The layout is irregular, consisting of a main hall block with a cross wing. Near the house is a timber-framed cowhouse, which may date to the medieval period.

Guided tours are available with teams of volunteers, and both the farmhouse itself and the associated farm buildings can be viewed.
