    After hours of trying to find somewhere to explore we came across Old Henllys Farm which looked really interesting and looked like it had lots of bits inside to look at, which are my favourite type of explores. I love finding old things and looking through them, finding things from years ago and wondering what the people who lived in that house used them for, who they were, what they did.

    The only problem was it was 3 hours away... but we had nothing better to do so off we went in the hope that we would be able to find a way in and it wouldn't already be trashed.

    3 hour later, we parked up amongst chickens and took a walk to find the house, initially taking the wrong path and almost walking in to house people were living in!

    A bit of history on the house:
    A Grade II listed building called Old Henllys Farmhouse. The farmhouse was built in the 16th century as a storeyed hall house. It was later converted into a domestic residence at some point and extended on the east side in the 18th century, with a 20th century kitchen extension to the rear.
    The large gable end Flemish type chimney on the western end of the farmhouse is now completely obscured and undoubtedly damaged by the ivy which also extends onto the roof.
    The farmhouse appears to be uninhabited since the death of Gladys Tucker in 2007 who is buried at Llanddewi Church. The Tucker family had lived here for more than a century.


    When we left the house and walked down the path, we were greeted by about 15 cows all stood staring at us. We weren't sure whether to keep going or wait but eventually the big bull came along and ushered them all down the path so we were safe to leave :)
    There was so much to see in this place, I hope it doesn't get trashed and everything stolen... It's someones property and it's such a shame it's all just been left to rot.
