We booked the guided tour of the hall on a Wednesday afternoon in April when there was a total of 4 visitors on the tour; this meant that we had a virtually private viewing and the undivided attention of the guide. Although not one of the owners, our guide was clearly a close associate and had a great deal of... More

Well worth the visit. Our group of eight were wonderfully 'entertained' within the Hall by Paul (the owner) after which we had tea and cakes before exploring the Gardens, Church and Abbey ruins in glorious Spring weather. It proved a unique, informative experience the highlights of which have been comprehensibly covered by previous contributors. Although not Christmas - being near... More

Abbey Cwm Hir certainly lives up to its name as it is a very long and windy road to get there. However it is picturesque and worth the drive. We arrived early and Paul came out to greet us and suggested we wonder round the gardens before the rest of the tour party arrived. The grounds were beautiful and we... More

What a place. A Victorian mansion full of pictures furniture and collectables in masses of rooms where you were allowed to sit and hear from the family all about it.

Beautifully restored mansion set in awesome surroundings. House displayed amazing artistic flair and taste in decor and furnishings with very striking results. The house is a living breathing home, not an impersonal historic building. Paul, the owner and our guide, was charming, witty and informative. The tour of the house was leisurely, most informative and enjoyable. Some beautiful, original paintings... More

Such personal dedication to style and authenticity contributes to the ultimate success of Abbey-Cwm-Hir Hall. A group visit during the pre-CHRISTMAS season was one of the true highlights of my year. I had never been able to visit before this but would recommend a visit here to any tourist and certainly all who live nearby. This was a real trip... More

The owners' passion and commitment to this massive project of restoration and now upkeep is tangibly all consuming, in a very positive sense. THey have done a great job, saving this beautiful and fascinating pile for the present and the man of the house gave us a most enjoyable tour.
