Prince Charles & Camilla's stunning Welsh home is almost entirely sustainable - see inside

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall own a property in Llwynywermod

Bridie Wilkins

Prince Charles and his wife Duchess Camilla own several properties including Clarence House in London, Birkhall in Scotland, Highgrove House in Gloucestershire and, case in point, a country home in Llwynywermod, Wales. Charles bought the home for £1.2million in March 2007, after he spent 40 years searching for the right place. Now, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall retreat to the luxurious farmhouse for regular visits, where they have three cottages, a Grade II-listed barn and a main house.

Prince Charles oversaw the building process to ensure that it was as sustainable as possible. Welsh materials including lime plaster and Welsh slate were reused and sourced locally, local workmen were recruited, heating and hot water comes from a wood-chip boiler, and the house even has rainwater storage. The rustic design, meanwhile, is truly beautiful. Take a look…
