Ty Gwyn Farm is a traditional mixed organic farm, sitting in the rolling hills of Radnorshire, with stunning panoramic views in every direction. Ty Gwyn is an ideal base from which to explore this hidden, unspoilt area of Mid Wales. The beautiful Elan Valley, Builth Wells and Hay on Wye are all within easy reach. There are walks around the farm and plenty of footpaths and long distance walks in the area of Radnorshire and Llandrindod Wells.

Our final gun dog week-end for 2013, took place last week-end, October 18 and 19. 4 spaniels and 2 labradors started with some of the basics and then moved on to the early stages of hunting and retrieving all under the expert tuition of Margaret. Most of the dogs presented some challenge to their owners, some more than others!
"A wonderful week-end we have learned so much and will take a wealth of advice and tips away with us. The company was wonderful too, and the setting, accommodation and hospitality fantastic. We will be back soon!" Julian, Rachel and Griff.
"Thank you both for a fantastic weekend. We've both gained so much from it and the dogs as well. Hospitality has been wonderful" Arwel and Carys

Margaret's latest sucess - she has won the Open Trial at Sandringham last week-end with FTC Lace. Lace is now a double field trial champion having won both on grouse and partridge. What a dog!

"Thanks so much for today's wonderful experience. Your graciousness, lovely tea, and food kept us going on our walking adventure. Stuart's sharing of his knowledge of walls and landscape has changed how we look at our world - can't get better than that." A comment from our lovely group of 10 Americans who came on our September course.
"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.
"Excellent. Stuart is really enthusiastic just what you need to trigger more interest. Lunch and tea really nice, also plentiful" John and Lindy 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
