About Llancaiach Fawr Manor
Llancaiach Fawr Manor and visitor centre is a place for all occasions. The historical Manor House has been restored and furnished as it would have been in 1645. Visitors step inside to be taken on a journey back to the 17th Century. Educational visits are extremely popular with primary schools through to universities.
Characters you may meet…You never know just whom you might meet when you visit Llancaiach Fawr Manor. If you are lucky, you might meet the master of the house, Edward Prichard but he’s a busy man, much concerned with business and the Civil War and so he is often called away at short notice.
Perhaps you might catch a glimpse of Mistress Mary Prichard, his wife… although she prefers to go and visit her family and friends at Briton Ferry, rather than brave the air of the valleys, as she is a rather “sickly” soul. Of course, being a devoted mother, she always takes their little daughters Jane and Mary, with her.
So whom might you meet? Well, there are the servants, they are always there to greet you and make you welcome!
Along with being a top visitor attraction, Llancaiach Fawr is the perfect location for weddings, conferences and functions. There is a varied annual events programme, café and delicious Sunday lunches are served every week in The Conservatory Restaurant within the visitor centre.
Weddings and civil partnerships
The Visitor Centre is set in the grounds of the Manor House and contains all the modern facilities you expect from a wedding venue. Mansel Hall is a self-contained function suite with its own bar and couples often choose to have their wedding breakfast in The conservatory Restaurant with delightful views of the surrounding countryside.
Llancaiach Fawr is licensed for civil marriage and civil partnership ceremonies in the 16th century Manor House, The Conservatory Restaurant and Mansell Hall.
