Erddig House, owned by the National Trust, is about 30 minutes drive from Pen-y-Dyffryn Hotel.
This is a splendid house which was neglected from approx 1900-1970 and therefore escaped modernisation, so it retains many sculleries, kitchens and pantries, all of which are on view as well as the main rooms and the servants sleeping quarters. We recommend that you watch the video of the house as it was when the National Trust took it over in 1970, which is shown in a stable block as you go through the archway into the first large stableyard. The gardens were restored at this time and they have now matured into an attraction in their own right. The parkland to the house is also open to the public, which gives an opportunity for a longer walk. As with many National Trust properties dogs are not welcome in the gardens, but the parkland does permit dogs. The car park for Erddig is in an orchard, so it is suitable to leave dogs parked in the shade whilst the house and gardens are visited. The old carriages have been restored and are now available for horse drawn trips around the parkland.
