There are walks around the farm and plenty of footpaths and long distance walks in the area of Radnorshire and Llandrindod Wells.

2016 is Wales Year of Adventure! 

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 -

Stay in our cottage made of straw with no electricity, learn to dry stone wall, or bring your gundog on a course.

There are lots of other great adventures you can have whilst staying with us

Take a Welsh Safari, watch the Red Kites, ride the Welsh Hills, discover the Elan Valley and if you just have to have a heart-stopping thrill,  then go on the Zip Wire!

Autumn Basic Gundog Courses.

Two great week-ends so far this autumn. As ever Margaret and I have met some lovely people, some really nice dogs and we've been blessed with excellent weather - let's hope it lasts for the final course of the autumn.  As usual on these basic courses we worked on recall, sit and stay, use of whistle and starting the dogs on hunting and retrieveing with a dummy and then cold game. We also did 20161016_103121.jpgsome retrieving across water, some dogs were very keen - in some cases a little too keen and threw themselves in whilst others needed some encouragement - all part of the learning process. A simulated walk up gives dogs and handler an idea of what to expect on a shoot day. Not everyone wants to work their dogs but this basic training gives owners an idea of what their dog is bred to do and shows them how they can do different things with their dogs which will help the dog settle, using its brain as exercise rather than too much physical exercise.

We certainly had a mixture of weather on our May course last weekend.  A very wet Saturday was followed by a lovely day on Sunday. Our 6 trainee wallers deserved a medal for their perserverance and determination to carry on walling whatever the weather. 

"A great day despite the rain. Many thanks to Stuart for his expertise and Margot for hospitality." Simon

"Great course, lovely lunch, fab company. The weather didn't dampen the spirits and built a short course of dry stone wall - fantastic." Tara

"Wonderful walls, wit - shame about the weather - fantastic fun and insightful instruction." Genevieve

"Great weekend, a blend of walls, geology, history and more walls. Good food and company too. Off to build my own ( small ) wall now"  Peter

"The venue is nothing less than fantastic as is the food, course and company. Walls are great!" Dave

Walking Through History   

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

 Walking across the Radnorshire Hills

  "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.
