An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above..


Brimming with history and character, this property is ideal for a group or large family to enjoy the lovely surroundings on the esatate.

Brynog Mansion Farmhouse, a vast wing of Brynog Mansion, has an important place in the history of the local area and today offers very spacious holiday accommodation for 12 people looking for a family holiday or group getaway.
A large house has existed at Brynog for centuries but the imposing frontage of long split sandstone blocks was added by the owners, the Vaughan’s, circa 1860s, in front of the earlier house which still survives. The long laurel lined driveway was built by Edward Vaughan to welcome his son John back from the Crimean War, but he tragically died at Sevastopol before he could see it. The driveway crosses the River Aeron by the fine stone Pont Brynog (Brynog Bridge) sometimes referred to as Pont Fawr in older maps. The current bridge was built in 1935 to replace the previous one which spectacularly collapsed into the river.

Evidence of the Vaughans still exist in the attic rooms of the Mansion House whose roof beams still bear the initials EV for Edward Vaughan. Sadly the orangery which used to exist in front of the entrance to the Farmhouse has long gone but it used to be accessed from the Mansion House by the blue glazed door which now forms the inner screen to the front entrance way of the Farmhouse.

The views are breathtaking looking out on the green vista of the Aeron Valley, which Dylan Thomas described as the most beautiful in Wales! Dylan and his wife Caitlin named their only daughter after this area, Aeronwy or Aeron for short. The Brynog farmland borders on the Llanllyr Estate, another large dwelling up river. Llanllyr was a medieval nunnery associated with the Cistercian Monastery, Strata Florida. The view of Cilbwn, the hill at the back of Brynog is spectacular and it is said that the farm track which forms a bridleway up to Cilbwn used to be a road frequented by monks to walk from Strata Florida down to the coast at Cardigan Bay to collect fish.
The present owner’s grandfather and his brothers bought part of the Brynog Estate in 1921 and the owners father milked the herd twice a day for over 50 years. Today the farm supports sheep in winter and cattle in summer. Much renovation and many changes have taken place over the years and various store rooms and servants quarters have been converted. The saddle rooms and gun rooms are now the large living room with inglenook fireplace which has been carefully re-exposed. Two beams keep the chimney stove in place but behind there is the original huge supporting tree trunk with bark still on it.

The Georgian harbour town of Aberaeron is just under 7 miles away and here you will find the colourful houses and architecture that make it so distinctive. There are an array of individual shops and a wide choice of cafe’s, restaurants and pubs. Enjoy the famous honey ice cream or fish and chips whilst taking in the delightful sight of boats bobbing about in the harbour. The sweeping crescent of Cardigan Bay has over 60 miles of coastal pathway and stunning beaches, scenery and seaside towns and villages to explore, including Abersytwyth, New Quay, Llangrannog, and Cardigan. The university town of Lampeter is also just 7 miles away.

Come and explore this wonderful part of Wales and make new memories by making historic Brynog Mansion Farmhouse your home for a short break or longer stay. Beach 7 miles. Shop and pub approximately 1 mile, restaurant 3½ miles.

    We had a family holiday with 3 generations. The house was lovely, well equipped and spacious. We received a warm welcome by the owners. The nearby town of Aberaeron was delightful. Also Aberystwyth less than an hour away has a great town for shopping and lovely beaches.

    As a large group everyone enjoyed their holiday at Brynog Mansion Farmhouse. We would highly recommend this property for any similar holiday. It is very private and quiet and surrounded by beautiful countryside. We would add that the website photographs do not do the property justice.
