Dyffryn house stands at the heart of the gardens. Listed at grade II* status, it had been remodelled from an earlier mansion that dates back to an estate from the 8th century.
These modifications were completed in 1892-3.
The Cory family were industrialists and made their wealth through coal.
The house provided a secluded family home within commutable distance of their business interests across south Wales.
The house came to the National Trust in 2013 without a collection.
No original belongings, pieces of furniture or art remain in the house, however is has given the National Trust a great opportunity to do something different.
