Announcing the award, a judge said: “Llancaiach Fawr is a house with a fascinating history, which has the good fortune to be run by a dedicated and visionary team of staff and volunteers.
“It already offers a rich programme of educational activities to both formal and informal learners, and is making the most of all the opportunities offered by the extensive building works currently taking place.
