History of hammet@castell malgwyn

The present house was constructed c.1795 for Sir Benjamin Hammet, a wealthy entrepreneur from Taunton, Somerset, who bought the estate in 1791. It is built in three storeys of local Cilgerran stone with a hipped slate roof, a five-bay frontage and a two-storey wing. It replaced a previous house and was originally named Castle Malgwyn.
Hammet, who founded and co-owned the bank of Esdaile, Hammet & Co. Was elected mp for his home town of Taunton in 1782. The grounds were landscaped by local landscaper, Charles Price.
After Hammet's death in 1802 the estate passed to his son, John. On John's early death in 1811 the house contents were sold. When Sir Benjamin's wife Lady Louisa died in 1824 the estate was sold to Abel Anthony Gower of Glandovan, who let the property. On Gower's death in 1837 his nephew, Abel Lewes Gower, inherited and moved in, investing a large amount of money on improving the property. When he also died young in 1849 his widow remained in residence until her own death in 1886, when it passed to Abel Lewes's brother, Robert Frederick Gower, who had also inherited Glandovan from their father. Castell Malgwyn passed down in the Gower family until it was sold in 1948, and became a hotel in 1962.
The house was renamed Hammet House in 2012 in recognition of the original owner, but renamed Hammet@Castell Malgwyn in 2017.
