History

Aberglasney was built by Bishop Rudd of St Davids from 1600 and was one of the largest houses in Carmarthenshire according to the hearth-tax assessment of 1670. It was sold in 1710 to Robert Dyer, who rebuilt and extended the house in the general form in which it now survives. It has been argued that the general layout of the gardens was the work of the Rudd family in the C17. Further major development was undertaken in the early C19, after the purchase by the Philipps family, which included the construction of coach houses and farm buildings around a courtyard NW of the house.

East Bailiffs Lodge was originally a coach house and with West Bailiffs Lodge was probably built in the third quarter of the C19. Both are shown on the 1887 Ordnance Survey, replacing an earlier building shown here on the 1839 Tithe map. The coach house has been converted to a dwelling.

Interior

The cottage has a 2-unit plan, with plain dog-leg stair opposite the entrance. The main room on the R has an ornate wooden fireplace surround, said to have been brought from the main house.
