Bryn Dethol is a unique and interesting former farmhouse which appears to have originated as a three-unit hall house of circa 1450. The original house was mainly timber framed and comprised a two bay open central hall with an inner room beyond a dais partition to the 'up hill' end. The house has subsequently been altered in the16th century and more recently in the18th century and it includes a wealth of original oak framed partitioned walls, 'A' frame roof trusses and splendid and large stone faced chimney breasts and fireplaces.
