Hafodunos hall is a Manor house located near the village of Llangernyw in Conwy, north Wales. It was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott a prominent Gothic Revival architect and bult between 1861 and 1866 for Henry Robertson Sandbach, whose family had bought the estate in 1830. The new house was built to replace a much older hall which had been built in 1674. The site had been occupied since at least 1530 but the remains of both previous houses are untraceable. The Sandbach family sold Hafodunos in the early 1930s. The building has had different uses since, from being a private girls' school to an old people's home. The nursing home shut down in 1993 as it failed to meet quality standards. In 2004 the largest part of the house was destroyed by a devastating fire, and following that, the whole site was left abandoned. In 2010 the property was bought for £390,000 and the new owners announced their desire to restore the house and use it as a residence.
The property looks as if it is currently under some restoration. Scaffolding the whole way round.

Arrived at this manor house late Saturday night. Parked up the lane and walked down and around threw the woods. There are houses right next door that are occupied. We had a little look around. But decided to come back the next morning as we didnt want to disturb the neighbours , and wanted to get a proper look in the day light as it is a beautiful building, So the next morning we parked up the lane and walked straight down. Noone in sight so we walked straight down and explored round with no interruptions or issues. Such a beautiful place. A lot of the inside has fallen down. A lot of it you cant get in. But we walked threw some of the building and admired the building from out side. Here are some pictures :)
