Later C18 farmhouse, altered. The farm is said to have been part of the estate of the bishops of St Davids and may be on a medieval site. According to Fenton, St Dogwell's, or Llantydewi, was a vicarage in the presentation of the chapter of St Davids from 1254, and the manor was held by John de Barry, then Sir Richard Symonds, who presented it to the chapter in 1329. The 1846 St Dogwells Tithe map records a holding of 78 acres owned by William Edwards and occupied by Daniel Owen. In 1926 St Dogwells Farm listed as farmed by A. & G. Raymond and also James Griffiths.
