Hasfield Court,

The Music Room, Billiard Room and Conservatory added to 17th century Hasfield Court  in 1885 provided the Victorian Baker family with all the fashionable rooms required for cultured living.  Repairs to the lantern roof of the conservatory, with a grant from the Historic Houses Foundation, will stop water ingress damaging the interior.

Glyn Cywarch,

Wales

On the Western edge of Snowdonia National Park sits an old weathered house of dove grey stone, hidden behind a square of protective buildings – a gatehouse, coach house, stables and, beyond, a walled garden.  The Historic Houses Foundation’s 2019 contribution will significantly advance the restoration programme of this special building.
