Llanerchaeron is a small 18th century Welsh gentry estate which has survived virtually unaltered. The house was built by John Nash in 1795 for Major William Lewis to replace an earlier house - originally the home of the Parry family since at least 1634.

Now consisting of the main house, servant's quarters, stables, farm buildings and walled garden, Llanerchaeron is a traditional rural estate that was bequeathed to the National Trust in 1989 by Mr J. P. Ponsonby Lewes, last of the ten generations of the family to have lived here.

Nash had been made bankrupt at the age of 31, however after designing Llanerchaeron and a number of other Welsh estate houses, he went on to grander things, designing the Brighton Pavilion and Buckingham Palace.

In the house can be seen the collection of antiques donated to the National Trust by Miss P. M. Ward. as well as memorabilia from the Lewis family.

The House and servant quarters were opened to visitors for the first time in June 2002 following extensive restoration. There are also extensive gardens also open to the public. The cafe serves home made food and their bread pudding is renowned.
