HISTORY Built in 1863 on the site of an existing house, Gwern Hall was built as a wedding present for the Spotteswoodes. The small private chapel was added a little later so that the Spottesdwoodes could return the hospitality of their neighbours whose chapel they visited on alternate Sundays. The land on which Gwern Hall now stands was originally part of the much larger Nant-y-Ffrith Estate which had been accumulated by Mr. Green from Ross on Wye, who was a timber merchant and who subsequently sold to the Spotteswoodes. During World War 2 evacuee children from Liverpool stayed at the hall. In 1951, in a bad state of neglect, it passed to the current owners, when the remains of the old house at the rear were replaced and extended to provide – kitchen, pantry, cloakroom, back staircase to additional bedrooms and two bathrooms. Central heating was installed (the boiler being housed in the cellar) and the AGA was installed in the kitchen. Electricity was installed about 7 years later. Several of the outbuildings were added at this time and some of them, near the original kitchen garden, were later converted to a staff bungalow (Gwern Hall Bungalow) to provide living room, kitchen/dining room, bathroom and two bedrooms. The wooden panelling on the main hall and staircase is the best from the once fully panelled dining room. The staircase itself and the galleried landing are original as are the doors in the older part of the house.
