Although Llanelly House has stood on this site for over 300 hundred years, the house that we are now proud to call one of our Top 100 Attractions in Wales, reopened its doors to a new set of visitors in October 2014. I have to say, a tour around the house is no ordinary tour. With state of the art special effects, and interactive members of the household, the hairs on the back of my neck really did stand firmly on end. The staff and management, in fact all of those who are responsible for bringing this very special building back to life, have surpassed all expectations. One thing also worth mentioning, is that you don't actually have to be taking a tour to visit the cafe and restaurant, and the food here really is the envy of Llanelli. There is absolutely no way I can do justice to Llanelly House in just a little over 150 words, so all I can suggest is you need to see it all for yourself, you will not be disappointed!

Llanelly House is the heartbeat of Llanelli and one of the most outstanding early Georgian buildings in Wales. The history, the building and its occupants reflect the triumphs and tribulations of the town and the influence Llanelli has had throughout the world. The house was substantially re-built in 1714 by Sir Thomas Stepney. The building fell into massive decline, was derelict and at a critical stage by 2009. The Trust,Cambrian Heritage Regeneration Trust, successfully applied for and secured full funding to restore this Georgian gem. Full site mobilization commenced in 2010 to undertake the restoration works, with the doors opening to the public on the 25th October 2013.
