History

The square farmyard lies immediately SW of the house. It was built in the mid-later C19 by the Glynllifon Estate, with a range of stables and barn on the SE, a range of cowhouses on the SW, and a piggery at the N corner. A stone lined driftway extends from the S corner.

Exterior

The SE range is built of stone, with slate roofs. Nearest the farm, a workshop, followed by a 2-bay stable, perhaps originally a barn, with two ventilation slits and a granary over furnished with bins, approached by a dog-leg stair, a 2-bay stable for working heavy horses, and, at the far end, 3 loose boxes for calves etc. A water wheel formerly stood in the narrow stone trough at the near end of the range, the outfall running across the farmyard in a stone covered culvert. Along the front a raised pavement for dryshod access. Timber stable doors, and ventilated windows, but one later wide opening.

Reasons for Listing

Included as an integral part of the mid C19 planned estate farmstead associated with the extended farmhouse at Hafod-y-wern.
