History of Pontyclerc
Pontyclerc Farm was originally part of the Dynefwr Estate, 200 acres of mixed farming. The original farmhouse is a 12th century longhouse which was then converted to a barn when Pontyclerc Farm House was built in the early 1800s. The barn is now an office and book store for our companies Sigma Press UK which publishes books on UK walking, cycling and local history and Stobart Davies, a specialist bookseller and publisher of woodworking books.
Pontyclerc was also home to Pontyclerc Brickworks and the Pontyclerc Colliery which changed eventually to Pantyffynnon Colliery, the farm supplying fresh milk to all the miners. The Farm has been in the family for over six generations and we were delighted to fully refurbish the property into a high quality accommodation establishment in 2018 and offer guests luxury, comfort and relaxation in our elegant Farm House and surrounding grounds.
