Abbeycwmhir Hall

 

Built in 1834 by Thomas Wilson the great Victorian improver, the house was doubled in size by the Philips family in 1869, who then added the snooker room in 1894.The architects were Poundley and Walker of Liverpool.


Paul and Victoria Humpherston bought the Hall in late 1997 and spent 9 years restoring it to a building of Gothic splendour; boasting stunning interiors and fascinating collections. They have also restored 12 acres of Victorian gardens in a beautiful setting above the ruins of the 12th C "Abbey of the Long Valley". The Hall has appeared on many television documentaries on historic houses, and on lifestyles.. Their achievements have been featured on BBC "Discovering Welsh Houses" ,"My Secret Wales","Wales Today", on ITV "Wales Tonight" ,"Great Welsh Roads"and "How the other Half Lives" and on S4C.

"The Happy Union"

The Happy Union Inn is a welcoming watering hole after a hard days work or ramble. The Happy Union Inn does not have TV, jukebox or fruit machines.There is an unusual pub sign of a man riding a goat.. It has a welcoming and pleasing atmospere with freindly chat from the locals helping you to relax and forget any troubles . We are not sure of its origin although it is said that it probably originated from the treaty of union between Wales and England.The Pub is well supported by the locals and has 2 pool teams and 2 dart teams operating throughout the winter months, and in the summer various social evenings and barbecues.
