Overview

The current owner’s family have lived here since 1906.

The house is filled with interesting family memorabilia. Inside, you can see the early 19th century flannel mill, the corn mill of 14th century origins and a recently created Gothic ‘ferme ornée'. Believed to be on the site of a grange of the local Cistercian abbey Strata Marcella, the very pretty stuccoed house nestles between its flanking brick stable and laundry pavilions with far reaching views over the Severn valley.

The grounds include rhododendrons part of the documented regency planting, a fine avenue of yew trees partly cut down to build the house, a 1950’s woodland hillside garden topped by a pair of carved stone memorial urns designed by William Kent and a recent terrace supported by cyclopean stone blocks.

From Welshpool take the A483 for 4miles south in the direction of Newtown. Turn right into Brithdir Lane immediately after the ‘Horseshoes ‘public house. Go 700 yards up Brithdir Lane and drive entrance is between stone gate piers on the right hand side and clearly marked.

Brithdir Lane is very narrow with a humpbacked bridge over the canal so access is difficult for large coaches.

Tour Overview

Tours are guided by the owner of Brithdir Hall, who has spent 30 years restoring the estate and is now turning his hand to the main house. This is very much work in progress.
