|ERDDIG HALL||Stately Home|
Erddig - The Jewel In The Crown
Don't miss the accumulated treasures of a family that never threw anything away, from the rare and beautiful to the trivial and commonplace.
You begin you visit at the estate outbuildings where the joiner and blacksmith worked, making your way through the hidden yard to the stables with it's tack room and array of carriages and bicycles. From here you enter the house through the laundry, bakehouse and kitchen getting a real feel for life below stairs.
The family rooms present a slightly different view with the dining room, chapel and state bedroom. This evocative upstairs downstairs house really is a jewel in the crown of welsh country houses.
