Everyone's adventure is different, it doesn't have to be sky diving or abseiling, it might just be something that you have never done before - see dark skies, learn a different skill, try different food, go riding, explore somewhere you have never been. Here at Ty Gwyn we can provide some great adventures -

The ultimate get away, The Straw Cottage, is truly far from the madding crowd, a straw bale cottage in an idyllic spot on the farm. This is the romance of a bygone era with 2016 comfort. If you want an unusual place to stay, if you like the idea of being away from it all and living with nature but do like a hot shower, a comfy bed and a flushing loo, The Straw Cottage is it...

"Thank you for a glorious long weekend away from the hustle and bustle of the south east. We all loved the Straw Cottage - so brilliantly thought out in every detail and so inviting, not to mention the welcoming flowers and scones! The surrounding area is spectacular too. We enjoyed the Elan reservoir so much as well as local walks around the farm and to Howey and Llandrindod Wells. Thank you again and hope to be back before too long." The Stewart Family September 2015 See more reviews on our Guestbook page

The start of another year's gundog courses. Our first was an Improvers, the next step up from our basic courses. We had yet another great group of people> It was lovely to see Rebecca and Murphy again, even better to hear how well Murphy had done this past shooting season, beating on two shoots. Margaret really put the dogs through their paces, whatever the experience of the dog and handler, everyone learnt something whether retrieving over water, long retrieves with distractions, hunting, retrieving back over a jump or flushing live game

We had a glorious sunny day for our dry stone walling course last weekend. Six enthusiastic wallers learnt from Stuart how to go about building their wall.
"A great day, great fun, instruction, etc, super weather," John.
Fascinating day - I am off to re-build my garden wall," Anna
Learn how to read the features in the landscape, what they are, why they are there and who put them there. Stone walls, enclosures, banks and ditches all tell a story of the past. Find out more whilst walking the Radnorshire hills with a landscape historian. More and 2016 dates
"Fascinating and fun. The area is filled with history with plenty of evidence going back to the iron age. Stuart gushes with enthusiasm and humour and never tires of teaching you new aspects of the hills. A most memorable day." Edward and Lucinda July 6.
"Our walk was preceeded by a good and clear yet entertaining talk by Stuart. On our walk over the hills, he was a mine of information as we observed the historical and archaeological evidence. Lunch was a superb picninc and gave us a chance to rest whilst we enjoyed the views. A thoroughly good day out, enjoyed by all." Ruth July 6
The Walking through History days are a great way of finding out about features in our landscape, what they are, why they are there and about the people who lived there.
