Interior

interiorOnce within the walls of Cefn Caer you can immediately sense that you have travelled back in time. In sited are the original dais partitions and a screen passage along with a 14th century ingle nook which houses a double stone arch bread oven.

Also to be found in the house is another 15th century ingle nook which houses a 17th century bread oven. Without any doubt, the 14th century oven would have baked bread for the table of Prince Owain Glyndŵr on those occasions when he and his officials used this hall house as a base.

A further striking aspect of Cefn Caer as a Hall House is the oriel projecting to the right of the dais partition; good use is now made of this oriel as a staging area for the harpist and ballad singer on those occasions when medieval banquets are held at the house.

interiorThe remarkable chequerboard ceiling shows that Cefn Caer retained its high gentry status well into a later period and, as we can witness, this magnificent of hall houses has survived - retaining all its dignity to the present period and may it survive to preserve and present its history to generation after generation to come.
