Country house of c1845, extended to rear in 1870s. In 1833 Cwrt Mawr was described as an ancient mansion, now a farm. The Rev. John Daniel was owner in 1830, and, on 1841 schedule to the Llangeitho Tithe Map, Cwrt Mawr was owned by the Rev. Daniel, occupied by David John. As the accompanying Tithe Map does not mark buildings it is not possible to say if this is the present house. A sale advertisement of 1850 describes a 'commodious house' with gardens, presumably the present house. The estate was bought by Robert J. Davies of Aberystwyth, and passed to his son John H. Davies, Principal of University College, Aberystwyth 1919-26.
