An inspirational legacy for future generations

How can you help support Gregynog in the future?

Since 2019 Gregynog Hall has been managed by the Gregynog Trust – a charity dedicated to ensuring this magical place remains an inspiration today and for generations to come.

We are working hard to cover the daily costs of running the Hall and estate – with accommodation for conferences and events as well as holidays, concerts and events, our 750-acre estate and our lovely Courtyard Café.

But there is a huge amount of work to be done to repair the historic house and estate and to restore our Grade 1 listed gardens. Our charity status means we can now get to work raising money to safeguard the future of the Hall and Grounds.

You can help by:-

  • making-a-donation (however small) either online or in our donation box in the café.
  • volunteering to help in our gardens or as a steward in the house for special events.
  • booking your wedding, conference or events here.
  • talking to us about supporting a specific project in the Hall or grounds.
  • talking to us about leaving a legacy in your will (inheritance tax free as we are a charity)
  • joining our Friends Scheme – or paying our minimal parking charge and coming along to enjoy the gardens.

We believe Gregynog has vital role to play – not just in history, but in future thinking: in wonder, culture and inspiration; in our wellbeing and spirit; in learning; in powering our local rural economy in Montgomeryshire. With your support the possibilities are endless.

Two sisters lived here at the turn of the twentieth century. Margaret and Gwendoline Davies were thinkers who were ahead of their time. The Davies sisters were committed to progress: and that progressive nature is still the beating heart of Gregynog today.

Gregynog’s reach is far and wide, it sparks ideas and progress for many, many people it touches. With your help, we could reach further still.

Gregynog is many things to many people. There is a strong sense of ownership of Gregynog amongst the local population, then there are those from the academic world, from students to professors emeritus, who treasure the experience of studying and teaching here and often return year after year. Also, the book collectors who love the Gregynog Press. Then there are the musicians who rejoice in the opportunity to perform at Gregynog and the audiences who love to listen to them.

Most importantly, there is increasing awareness of the environmental importance of ancient estate lands such as those at Gregynog. We take our responsibilities here very seriously. The importance of such lands and the survival of the traditional skills used in their husbandry is increasingly recognised as essential to the maintenance of environmental diversity in the face of shrinking habitats. In March 2013 the 750-acre Gregynog estate was declared a National Nature Reserve, not only to protect the ancient oaks and the rare lichens that grow on them but to ensure that the many other undisturbed habitats are conserved…

The creation of the Gregynog Trust will open up many exciting new opportunities for regenerating the hall and estate, many new developments, all to be harnessed in the creation of an inclusive identity which will have a crucially important part to play in the future of a sustainable Wales.
