For over fifteen years, Glansevin has hosted corporate events.
Before Glansevin became a truly unique self-catering venue, we ran exclusively as a team-building retreat centre. Given our history, we understand exactly what companies need to run exciting and organised corporate events.
Whether it is an annual conference, a themed party or even an ‘It’s a Knock Out Style’ fun day, we have accommodated all kind of company retreats.
When you book with Glansevin, you have exclusive use of a beautiful Georgian Mansion and its grounds, both of which are steeped in history. You have the control to decide what would work best for your team, but we’re more than happy to recommend some of the best local facilitators, event planners, caterers and entertainers for your stay.
Get in touch to find out more about renting out Glansevin exclusively for your office or company.
Don’t believe how good your retreat could be Glansevin? Just read our reviews from two recent clients below:

For over 15 years, Glansevin has been a beautiful venue for all types weddings and civil ceremonies. Over the years we’ve welcomed stunning winter weddings and accommodated intimate celebrations at the start of the spring bulbs.
You can have a look at some of our previous weddings, but we have a special post just to celebrate some of the unique and exciting ceremonies we’ve had so far in 2016.
If these pictures don’t say enough, here are some of the best things about having a wedding with us, just to name a few:
- We don’t charge for corkage so you can choose exactly what kinds of drinks you want (and how much of them you want!)
- We’re a self-catering venue, so you can choose to do the food your way. Casual hog roasts or five course fine dining meals, whatever suits you. And of course we’d be happy to recommend some of the best local caterers for your time with us.
- Choose to have your ceremony your way – an intimate blessing or a full registrar wedding – we’ve accommodated all different ways of saying ‘I do’.
- We’re a dog friendly venue (T&Cs apply) so your beloved pets don’t have to miss out on your special day.

Glansevin sleeps up to 56 but your event or wedding may well have a number of guests whom you cannot be accommodated entirely at Glansevin.
We are fortunate here to have a range of boutique hotels and B&B’s in the local vicinity. Being located almost exactly halfway between two bustling market towns, Llandeilo and Llandovery, we can suggest several hotels in these locations.
Firstly, in Llandeilo The Cawdor Hotel lies central to this historic little town set upon a hill. With its grandeur front palisades onto Rhosmaen Street, The Cawdor offers luxury rooms and fine dining, within an affordable price range. The grade II listed building has modern twists whilst keeping its historical appeal. Often with offers on the rooms available online, it is a great suggestion for your surplus invited guests.
Situated on the edge of Llandeilo, with stunning views over the Carmarthenshire countryside and overlooking the River Towy valley, The Plough is ideally located just on the outskirts of Llandeilo in the tiny village of Rhosmaen. Easy to find alongside the A40 this four star hotel has had recent upgrades and has a contemporary feel. The spacious rooms have recently won the tourism awards for Carmarthenshire in 2015/16.
Along the valley Northward from Llandeilo lies another local historic town, Llandovery. In the very centre of the town, we can recommend The Castle Hotel. From its roots as a coaching inn this hotel has grown and modernised but retains inglenook fires and cosy sofas where you can relax and sample their local range of ales and restaurant menu. Four poster beds mix with modern en suites ensuring the rooms will be more than suitable for your overflow guests from Glansevin.
Lastly, and very much on our doorstep, we have The Goose and Cuckoo, offering quality B&B accommodation with breakfast included. Lying centrally in our local village of Llangadog, just about a mile away, this country pub has a lovely menu, specialising in Sunday Lunches. The rooms are en suite and offer an affordable and comfortable stay.
When deciding on your bedroom arrangements, keep in mind that Glansevin can accommodate up to 40 in the Mansion itself. In the Annexe (on the same property and a stone’s throw away from the Mansion), we can accommodate a further 16 bedrooms in 8 en suite bedrooms.
Carmarthenshire is a blissful place to stay and explore, and these local establishments certainly sum up hospitality to be proud of.
Thrifty tips for planning events and weddings at Plas Glansevin
Consider a mid-week event — Exactly the same venue but potentially at a lesser rate. Weekends are in very high demand, so booking on a weekday may mean a considerable cheaper quote.
Keep decorations minimal — Plas Glansevin is already a stunning Georgian mansion decorated with unique artistic pieces, you can afford to be sparing with decorations for your event, whether it’s a party or reunion. Extra tip: use in-season floral arrangements if you want to lessen the cost of flowers!
Eat local — By using a local caterer you can eat seasonal and local dishes where possible, avoiding excessive costs. We recommend Charlotte Roskill or Purple Carrot both of which are well acquainted with catering for all ranges of events at Plas Glansevin.
