Llanerchaeron is a small 18th century Welsh gentry estate which has survived virtually unaltered. The house was built by John Nash in 1795. Consisting of the house, servant's quarters, stables, farm buildings and walled garden, Llanerchaeron is a traditional rural estate that has remained in the same family for ten generations.

The house was commissioned from John Nash in 1789 by Colonel William Lewis. 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 full restoration. There are extensive walled gardens and farm also open to the public. The cafe (seasonal) serves home made food .
