General 
By the end of the 19th century, Glandwr was rented by Newcastle Emlyn solicitor, Benjamin Evans. His daughter, Ann Adalisa Evans, nom de plume Allen Raine, was one of the period's most popular novelists. Her works were so renowned in Britain, America and Europe, that some of her stories describing rural life in West Wales, were made into early silent movies.

Allen Raine maintained a close association with Glandwr. In 1872, when she was 36, she left Glandwr and Tresaith, in her pony and trap, to marry Beynon Puddicombe in the local ancient parish church, St Michael's, Penbryn. She is now buried in the same churchyard.

Glandwr was extended several times over the years, and following a long period as a small hotel in Tresaith, the house was sympathetically restored and modernised to the comfortable and welcoming family home it is today.
