Cwmgloyne was until mid C20 built to a courtyard plan, but the third range has been demolished. It was a gentry house of the Lloyd family (also of Hendre, St Dogmaels) from the C16 when Owen Lloyd acquired it by marriage. His son John (1544-1637) lived at Hendre, but after 1637 Cwmgloyne became the principal residence. Evan Lloyd (d 1646), had been resident at Cwmgloyne from c1600. Thomas Lloyd (1732-88) was a noted agricultural improver and promoter of Welsh literature. From 1788 it passed successively to Morris Williams of Trellyffaint (d 1840), Owen Owen (d 1849) and M.L.W.Owen (d 1908), but was tenanted from circa 1841 and sold 1909. The author R.M.Lockley farmed Cwm Gloyne in C20.
