Llawhadden House

Llawhadden House

Llawhadden House is a Grade II listed hall which sits comfortably to the side of the road only a few minutes walk away from Llawhadden Castle. The house fell victim to fire in 2000. Sadly the elderly owner perished during this event, thus ending a 300 year long occupation of the house by the Skyrme family, and turning the property itself into a burnt out shell. The house now sits at the centre of the village surrounded by security fencing and large red KEEP OUT signs. After many years of lying abandoned with vegetation slowly creeping in, an effort has been made to clear the site by the current owner, with a plan, (still in its infancy), to restore the building. This is a promising development, but is, no doubt, going to be a long and slow process. Although Llawhadden is not the hugest of houses, it still makes you bring the car to a halt as you drive past to imagine how it was in the past.
