Plas Cilybebyll Manor House is situated in the heart of South Wales, conveniently accessible from the M4, just 10 miles away from Swansea and in proximity to the Gower Peninsula and Brecon Beacons. Nestled in a breathtakingly secluded location, the property offers picturesque parkland views, reminiscent of a grand French chateau. Boasting a remarkable 10m indoor swimming pool, a tennis court, an Italianate garden with a pond and a domed folly, a secret walled garden with a lily pond, all set against the backdrop of over 100 acres of serene countryside.

Steeped in History
Ideal for group accommodations, exclusive get-togethers, or gatherings of friends seeking a spacious retreat in the Welsh countryside. The property, with its elegant stucco facade and symmetrical pavilions, presents a photogenic backdrop for grand occasions and events.

Indulge in Luxury
The highlight is undoubtedly the exquisite 15th-century stone-walled swimming pool, heated entirely by green energy, offering views of the pond garden, folly, and neoclassical statues. Plas Cilybebyll holds a recorded history dating back to the early 1400s, with dynastic owners claiming descent from Urien Rheged, a Welsh King of the Dark Ages and a prominent figure in Arthurian legend.

Explore the Enchanting Spaces
Discover the magical oak-paneled library with a secret doorway, housing a private collection of Welsh-themed books, including centuries-old volumes from previous Lords of the manor. The property is surrounded by century-old trees along the picturesque River Clydach, providing a haven for nature lovers and offering a dramatic backdrop of Mynydd Marchywel, a mythical mountain.

Celestial Delight
Nestled in a secluded countryside location, the manor's front lawn serves as an ideal spot for stargazing, offering clear views of the Milky Way on moonless nights.

Recreational Pleasures
Enjoy a game of tennis on the court located in front of the glass-fronted orangery, set within a beautiful parkland field grazed by sheep and cattle. The orangery itself serves as a flexible entertainment suite with a spacious lounge-bar and a stunning dining area, providing panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and tennis court. There is also a games room with a pool table, table football and table tennis.

A Touch of Elegance
With an impressive oak door entrance leading to a vaulted ceiling vestibule, a gourmet kitchen featuring bespoke cabinetry and an Aga within a reclaimed stone inglenook, a spacious master suite with a juliette balcony, and various rooms like the dining room, drawing room, wine cellar, and elegantly appointed bedrooms, Plas Cilybebyll captures the essence of a French chateau in the heart of Wales.
