Llanelly House 


" You explore the house, as the house explores you."

Llanelly House is a grade 1 listed building and considered one the finest examples of an early 18th-century Georgian townhouse in Carmarthenshire, Wales.


The house came to the nation's attention on the BBC ‘Restoration programme, as a national finalist, championed by the flamboyant Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and Griff Rhys Jones.


This Georgian gem was in a shocking state of disrepair and on the brink of collapse. With national support and £6M funding, the house was restored to its former glory, with Hatto directing the project from inception to completion.
