This 18th century  house  was  the  home  of  the  Powell  family  and  is  most  famous  for  having  housed  the Nanteos cup, said to be the holy grail. We will have a short talk on the history of the house, a guided tour and, for those who have worked up an appetite, end with the option for Afternoon Tea at £15 a head. There is a limit of 20 people so please let Sandra know if you are interested as soon as possible, including whether you will want the tea.
