A jewel in the Pembrokeshire crown

One of Wales' most significant stately homes, Cilwendeg Mansion is a private and luxurious stately home in Pembrokeshire which can be hired for exclusive rentals and events. Set in horticultural parkland on the edge of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, just 8 miles from some of the UK's 'best-kept-secret' sandy beaches, Cilwendeg is a John Nash designed Grade II Georgian mansion house.


Presented as an exclusive-use luxury venue with service, the entire mansion house, gardens and staff are available solely for the private enjoyment of resident guests for the duration of your stay. The Cilwendeg experience is reminiscent of an exclusive private yacht charter and so the mansion is referred to as 'the Land Yacht', where up to 36 guests can be accommodated in style and grandeur.

With four large reception and dining areas – all with civil ceremony licences - 8 configurable en-suite bedrooms, a four-bedroom penthouse  suite, secluded glass orangery and conservatory, Cilwendeg has been sympathetically restored to reflect the grand Edwardian Belle Époque whilst offering many contemporary features to meet the discerning requirements of our preferred guests. Lose yourself in the luxurious surroundings or take a relaxing stroll in the romantic parkland or on the famous terraced lawns which are also licenced for civil ceremonies.

Cilwendeg is also the perfect place to hold events such as an engagement, significant anniversary or special family get-together, and is of course an ideal venue for that romantic and indulgent pampered weekend as an alternative to a traditional yacht charter or luxury hotel stay.

We provide a full-board dining service including breakfast, lunch, and dinner for in-house resident guests for the duration of your stay.

We try as far as possible to source food locally, supporting artisan food producers and enjoying the specialities they create. If there is some local or indeed international delicacy you would particularly like to try we will do our best to source and include it in your menu options.

Special event catering, for example a formal luncheon or dinner, wedding breakfast, reception or evening function where non-residents will be present, must be separately catered and serviced, and we can either recommend accomplished local artisan suppliers or work with yours.

The ethos of exclusive use at Cilwendeg Mansion is that you get to spend some time, take a moment, sit back, relax and be able to fully enjoy being with your closest friends and family. We want to give you the space and time to be together, creating and enjoying those special conversations, moments and memories that you will remember for a lifetime. Have a card game in the Library, a treat in the Orangery, a game of table tennis or pool in the Billiard room or a leisurely walk around the gardens - Cilwendeg has lots of rooms and spaces to explore.

The house can accommodate up to 24 adult overnight guests as resident for overnight stays. Additional ceremony, reception or evening guests are permitted in line with booked capacity between the hours of midday on the day of the ceremony and 1am on the following day.
