History

Gwysaney is a Jacobean mansion built in 1603, although the present group of outbuildings belong principally to the revival of the Gwysaney Estate in the C19 by the Davies-Cooke family. The stable was built in the third quarter of the C19 and is first shown on the 1870 Ordnance Survey.

Exterior

Lofted stable of tooled snecked stone and graded slate roof behind stepped gables. The front has 3 doorways under stone lintels, all with boarded doors but replaced in the R-hand. Further R is a window with rock-faced segmental head, small-pane metal-framed glazing and sliding vents. At the L end are double half-glazed boarded doors under a stone lintel. Three ventilation strips are in the loft to the centre. The end and rear walls are rubble stone. Against the L gable end is an added lean-to greenhouse, above which are 2 ventilation strips. The rear has a loft doorway under a gablet to the L side.

Interior

Not inspected.
