Llwynywermod, (Welsh: Llwynywermwd), also known as Llwynywormwood, is an estate owned by the Duchy of Cornwall, just outside the Brecon Beacons National Park in Carmarthenshire, Wales. The 192-acre (0.78 km2) estate is near the village of Myddfai, Llandovery, Carmarthenshire.


William Williams, a relative to Anne Boleyn, was the original owner back in the 13th or 14th Centuries. At some time, the Griffies-Williams took on the title of a baronetcy in the early 18th century being close to the royals.[1]

In 2006, Llwynywermod was purchased by the Duchy of Cornwall as a residence for the Duke in Wales.[1] The Duchy completed its purchase of the property in March 2007. Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, took up residence at the property in summer 2008.[1]


The three-bedroom farmhouse was converted into a residence for Charles, Prince of Wales, who is also the Duke of Cornwall, by Craig Hamilton Architects[2] using traditional building techniques.[3] It was once the coach house to the now ruined 13-bedroom country house of the Griffies-Williams family that stood nearby. The courtyard range adjoining the main house is let as holiday accommodation when the Prince is not in residence.[4]
