Mysevin, Denbigh, Denbighshire
Picturesque Regency house in a lovely secluded setting in a remote part of Denbighshire. Welsh scholars William Owen Pughe and son Aneurin Owen, authors of the Mysevin Manuscripts, (housed in National Library of Wales) owned the Mysevin farmland but lived at neighbouring property, Tyn Y Gyrt. Family squabbles led to the main house at Mysevin being built in 1827. In 1976 the Kerr-Wilson family purchased the property from Churchill Owen's estate.
The house is situated on a wooded hillside over looking lawned gardens, a little rose garden, interesting herbaceous borders running down to the Afon (river) Ystrud. To the rear of the house is a green bank including white garden and ornamental woodland garden. The garden is the essence of peace and serenity, with rare plants and a famed, recently created shell house by Blott Kerr-Wilson.
The tour will start with a visit to the family’s 50s and 60s museum at Cae Dai near Denbigh. Followed by the Mysevin tour consisting of ground floor reception rooms of the house, garden tour including outbuildings and the shell house. Visitors may wish to take short unguided woodland and river walk.
