Penbedw was a Georgian country house purchased by William Barber Buddicom, an established railway engineer, in 1852. Improvements were made to the park soon after, including Mold Lodge and its adjacent gateway, which formed one of the main entrances to the park. The lodge is shown on the 1871 Ordnance Survey. The main house was demolished in 1958.
