Clawdd Coch Guest House - A History
Once the weekend retreat for Ivor Novello, Clawdd Coch is a 17th Century Welsh Long House with an interesting past.
Built in the 1650’s, at the time of Oliver Cromwell, as a farmhouse, it was one of the first buildings in the area for many years. It was also used as a prayer house by the local community.
Clawdd Coch Guest House has always been a farmhouse and was regularly visited in the early 1900’s by Ivor Novello, the composer, actor and scriptwriter. He would leave his home in Cardiff, South Wales and spend many weekends here, to relax and gain inspiration for his works.
In 1956 the last family to farm at Clawdd Coch moved in, and are still working the farm today in the surrounding fields. In 1988 we moved into Clawdd Coch and sympathetically renovated and extended the property to what you see today. We trust you will enjoy your stay here with us and feel relaxed in the beautiful rural surroundings.
