Cedar Hall is a Grade 1 listed Jacobean Manor just inside Wales, near Chester, and about a mile from the market town of Mold. The house contains a site of historic interest and has a lot of unique features.

The Hall was built by Edward Lloyd in 1625 on the site of a house some 100 years earlier and has remained in the same family ever since.

Next to the property are a unique row of Llettai, or 8 cells, complete with an overseer's cottage at the end. These additional Grade 1 buildings contain a plaque stating "These Llettai were erected by Mr. Edward Lloyd when he built the house of Pentrehobyn. After the suppression of the monasteries there were no resting places for the poor moving from one place to another".

It is believed that these Llettai were built by the grandfather of Edward Lloyd in about 1550, also called Edward Lloyd. The present drive was the main road at that time which meant that it passed very close to the house, hence the many requests for hospitality that resulted in the building of the Llettai.

Inside the house there are two sets of early 17th century carvings above the dining room and central hall fireplaces. The dining room carvings are earlier while the carving in the main hall commemorates the successful attack by the Prince of Wales against the army of Randulph, Earl of Chester. Three Englishmen's heads were presented to the Prince of Wales who, in turn, granted these as the Lloyd ancestor's coat of arms.

The entrance hall of Cedar Hall incorporates an early oak screen on which the craftsmen's marks are clearly shown, together with some carved dates. Similar craftsmens' marks can be seen on the huge oak beams supporting the roof on the second floor, currently used as a TV screening area.

A note from the owners:

"Cedar Hall was the site of the National Eisteddfod of Wales in 2007 and has been in the same family hands many generations.

The house consists of an oak paneled central hall, complete with family portraits, for general entertaining with a drawing-room and dining-room off it. There are four double bedrooms and four bathrooms on the first floor with a further three double bedrooms with two bathrooms on the second floor. We can accommodate up to a total of 14 guests.

Cedar Hall is very much a family house to provide your guests with whatever type of weekend, or stay, they might prefer in unusual historic surroundings and in complete privacy."
