About Ty Gwyn Farm

Ty Gwyn Farm is a traditional mixed 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. Watch the wildlife; we have red kites, buzzards, hares and badgers, enjoy clean air, open skies and absolute peace and quiet.More Info


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!

About The Straw Cottage

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...  More Info

"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

Retrieving across water

Improvers Gundog Course - April 2 & 3

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

 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.
