A special opening ceremony will take place today to mark the first public opening of Dyffryn House and gardens since it was restored.
The house has benefitted from funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to help restore five of its rooms and the gardens.
We are very pleased to open the House to the public at Dyffryn Gardens, our newest member of the National Trust family in Wales.
We hope people who visit will see how the work of many project partners has brought about such a splendid transformation. We are confident that today marks another significant step in our journey to see Dyffryn Gardens and House grow into a major tourist attraction in Wales and a special place loved and enjoyed by all.
– Justin Albert, National Trust Director for Wales
Dyffryn House will reopen for the first time since its multi-million pound restoration. The historic house has never been fully opened to the public before, but today visitors will be able to explore its restored rooms for the first time.
Rooms on the ground and first floor will be open to allow visitors to enjoy views of the garden.
In January, the National Trust took over management of the house and gardens on a 50-year lease.
