Llancaiach Fawr Manor was the home of Colonel Edward Prichard during the Civil War years. Guides are dressed in period costume and speak in the style of the 17th century. Tales of life in a Civil War gentry household are unfolded when touring the home. Charles I visited in 1645. After his visit loyalties were switched from the King to Parliament. The house was built circa 1530 by Colonel Prichard's great grandfather and is a good example of a semi-fortified manor house of Tudor times. The parlour is panelled in oak. There are candlelight ghost tours in the winter months.
