Llandingat House Is a Late Georgian detached town house in the market town of Llandovery, which offers typical facilities in the form of shops and businesses, railway station, public houses and hotels, primary school and College. The house is set back some way from the road, surrounded by its own grounds and outbuildings, in total extending to approximately 1.2 acres.
The building dates from the early nineteenth century, probably 1813 to 1814, such substantial town houses are relatively rare in West Wales in that period. The house was built for David Lloyd harries who had been an attorney in the town since 1808. In 1870, it passed into the hands of Lieutenant Colonel Edward Pryse Lloyd, who changed his name to Lloyd Harries, as a condition, when he came into his inheritance. In the 1890s his brother Tudor Lloyd Harries became the owner, and since then the house has been occupied by the re named Llandovery College as a boarding House.
