Description 
Set within private grounds, a short walk to the beach, Glandwr, a Georgian Grade 11 listed country house, dates back to 1809. This date is carved into the beam above the large fireplace, in the living room. Situated in picturesque Tresaith, a small village on the stunning South Ceredigion coastline, the house was built by one of Cardiganshire's major landowners of the time, John Lloyd-Williams, of the Gwernant estate, as his family's summer home. Glandwr is rumoured locally, to have engaged the expertise of the famous "John Nash", architect of Buckingham Palace and Regent Street, London. No documentation remains, to prove this point, but it is certainly clear that "Nash" was known to work in the area at the time, following his building of the Llanarchaeron estate near Aberaeron. Thankfully some typical 'Nash' influences such as the splendid overstairs 'lantern' light, gothic arch windows and curved ceiling covings, are strong features...
