About the property

Built in 1815 this former school house has been beautifully renovated by the current owner to create a spacious and quirky property. James Davies House is named after the old schoolmaster at Devauden who played an important part in the development of the village during the early nineteenth century. In 1814, the Duke of Beaufort, the local landowner, donated the land and paid for the construction of the school building. James Davies spent over thirty years as the schoolmaster during which time he was responsible for establishing the school and chapel. He gained a reputation for making many sacrifices and enduring personal hardship in order to help the poor in the community. Read more
