Manor Park is known today as one of the city’s leading venue for occasions; but the history of this building also shines a light on antiquity and history. Formerly a stately home, Manor Park Country House, or Ynyspenllwch Mansion, was built in the 1700’s, and is a Grade II Listed Building. The architecture of the building is now quite rare within the Swansea Valley, as it represents a substantial Italianate Villa; Typical of houses built by those with large industrial wealth.

Ynyspenllwch Mansion remained in the Miers family for the duration of the 1800’s. John Miers, originally of London, moved to Vernon House, Wales in the 1760’s, later acquiring Cadaxton Lodge Estate. Ynyspenllwch Estate was then bought by the executors of the will of John Miers (Younger). It was purchased from Molly Ann Mackworth, the widow of Sir Robert Mackworth of Gnoll. Ynyspenllwch house was built, replacing the small lodge which had previously occupied the site.

The house remained in the family for some years, up until 1927 when the Ursuline Order of Sisters were offered a sub-tenancy as theirs had expired at neighbouring Ynys House. The sisters became a familiar sight around the village, and supported the community, helping those in need.

The Sisters also run a children’s home from within the house, as well as a successful private school – Right up until 1970. In 1956, the Sisters thought they would lose their tenancy on Ynyspenllwch House when the nickel works within the estate were looking to extend. They managed to purchase the property outright, and continued to be a strong part of the wider community up until 1994.

I got married in the manor house 28th February 2019, from the moment we started planning to the final goodbye everything was professionally done. The food was amazing with plenty to go around, and the buffet had all guests talking as it was a hot buffet. I would highly recommend the venue to anyone thinking of getting married

Me and my wife got married at Manor Park and the day could not have gone any better. The staff were incredibly helpful with all our questions and requests. We couldn't have asked for more from them. The food was great and the the venue was decorated just how we wanted it to look! I also would like to give a special mention to Babs who guided us through the day and made sure that everything went perfectly.
