A Period Piece
Mark Girouard, author of The Victorian Country House, described Treberfydd House as completely lacking in pretentions, making it "one of the most attractive and successful of Victorian country houses." The house was designed by the respected Victorian architect, John Loughborough Pearson, who became best known for his churches, including Truro Cathedral.
Occupied by the Raikes family since it was built, nearly all of the original features of the house remain. These include elaborately carved stone fireplaces, glazed tiles, carved oak staircases, stained glass windows as well as Robert Raikes' extensive library which remains virtually untouched.
Like many Victorian houses of the period, Treberfydd has a school room, a scullery, a nursery, a back staircase, a billiard room and even a secret passageway. The house also contains fine examples of the original Gothic oak furniture designed by Pearson.
The house is open for visitors for four weeks in the year, and we also welcome private groups of 10 or more seeking a tour of the house. For more information, please email us using the information below.
