Trevalyn Manor is a handsome country house, believed to date back to the mid-18th Century, with Victorian additions.

The property enjoys some exceptional period features including stone quoins, as well as plinths and cornicing and enjoys a Roman Doric stone portico, providing a majestic foyer. The manor house itself was converted into six exclusive apartments circa 2007, of which this property forms the principal penthouse apartment.
