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!

What will be Your Adventure?

Round up on the gundog courses of 2016

DSCF1082.JPGOur final weekend of the autumn courses has come and gone.  Now Margaret and I are beating with our own dogs. I had my first day last Saturday,in glorious autumn weather, chilly but bright. A good first day with guns getting their eye in and us beaters glad we had not got too unfit during the summer! Ash was as enthusiastic as ever, he takes his beating more seriously than his demonstration work - no yawning and playing to the gallery! Over the year we've had 6 courses and met some lovely people, some really nice dogs and we've been blessed with excellent weather. It's great when you get back in touch and let us know what's happening with your dogs - like Annette who emailed "Just wanted to let you know that Locket won Novice yesterday at Berkshire Downs with a score of 79/80. Nigel and I are absolutely thrilled to bits! Please let Margaret know for us as she helped me so much on our training weekend". From Abi with her cocker "I just wanted to say a huge Thank you to both you and Margaret for the dog training course. We learnt a lot which showed yesterday when I went on a shoot. She was so steady and stayed close by. The gamekeeper was very impressed considering it was her first shoot she had ever been on!" and Hayley "Claude and I did our first novice text recently at Stoneleigh Park and came first , we have also been invited to pick up on a local shoot, can't wait."

We now have our dates for Spring 2017, do get in touch if you would like to book.  I look forward to meeting new dogs and their owners and seeing old friends.

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.
