Location

LOCATION

Ffynone is situated outside the village of Boncath nestled in the rolling countryside of North Pembrokeshire in south west Wales. The county is home to Pembrokeshire coast national park, the only coastal national park of its kind in the United Kingdom. Over the years the Pembrokeshire's beaches have received many seaside awards.

HISTORY

Ffynone is a magnificent Grade I listed mansion designed by the renowned architect John Nash. Most famous for the eponymous terraces that surround London's Regents Park.

Nash also spent a number of years working in Wales where Ffynone is widely considered to be his finest private work across the borde, which he completed in 1799. He was commissioned by Colonel John Colby, and designed the house on a classical Georgian model. The Colby family subsequently employed the architect and garden designer Inigo Thomas at the beginning of the 20th century.

Thomas adopted an Italian classical design when building the two wings. He decorated both the rooms in Italianate baroque style and embellished the exterior with rusticated quoins and heavy keystones above each window.

Outside, Thomas exerted his impressive talent with an elaborate belvedere long stone terrace with grottos and water features. 60,000 trees were brought in from a nursery in Norwich some of which survive to this day.

Acquired by the current owners family in 1988, the last 30 years has seen a continual program of restoration.
