Dduallt Manor is a small manor house, part dating from the 15th century. Oliver Cromwell allegedly stayed here during his campaign against the Royalists in North Wales. The house was bought by Colonel Andrew Campbell in 1962. At that time it did not have road access, which the Colonel rectified, but not before he had moved in all his furniture and household effects by rail.
He very generously allowed the Deviationists to use the rear and oldest part of it as a Mess during the construction period. This usage came to an end in autumn 1973.
The property, now in different ownership, has been split into two, the Manor house and the cottage. These were available separately for hire as self-catering accommodation. The current owner continues to hire the cottage but the Manor house is no longer available as accommodation although it can be hired for use as a film location.
