Maes Manor Hotel

The Hotel is situated in the heart of the Welsh valleys, elevated high on Maesrudded Hill, with spectacular views over the surrounding countryside. Immersed within nine acres of beautifully manicured terraced lawns and woodland in Blackwood, this majestic manor house offers a haven of peace and tranquility for both the business and leisure visitor, far away from the stresses of everyday life.

Maesrudded was the home of Mr. Edmund Williams and his family. At the beginning of the 19th Century, the bulding was a prosperous farm, with large land holdings. In 1814, Mr. Edmund Williams is recorded as having let the rights to extract coal from part of his land to the Argoed and Newport Coal Company at a shilling to royalty. Williams fathered four children - William, Edmund Davies, Mary and Margaret.
