About Ty Gwyn Farm

Country courses, a straw bale lodge and self catering accommodation at Ty Gwyn Farm, Llandrindod Wells, Radnorshire, Wales. Ty Gwyn Farm in Mid Wales 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. From the farm there is easy access to the Victorian Spa town of Llandrindod Wells which still retains its magnificent buildings many of which surround the Temple Gardens. Within the town there are supermarkets, local food shops, a Victorian theatre, gift shops, coffee shops, restaurants and pubs. The 13 acre lake is a particular feature with a magnificent dragon fountain in the middle. 

Ty Gwyn is in a truly beautiful location. As you drive down the lane, you can see the vast panorama of hills spread out before you.  Once here, there is a total peace and quiet, no other properties can be seen and the sky is dark at night, so you can see the stars. The only sounds you may hear are the birds, the stream and the sounds of our livestock. The lane that comes to the farm is very quiet and does not really go anywhere so we only get about one car a day using it!

We farm in the traditional manner as generations of farmers have done before us.

You will see our horses about the farm; Melly, Cleveland Bay x TB, Molly Shire x TB, and Monty a thoroughbreds. They are all very friendly with different characters and happy to be spoken to!

Last but certainly not least is Ash our very exuberant cocker spaniel! 

 

 

We like to take care of the land we farm, to maintain and improve the habitats for wildlife.  We are in Glastir, an environmental scheme run by the Welsh Government; we maintain old pastures, allow our hedges to grow thicker and taller and maintain ditches and ponds.  In Ben’s wood, you can see where we have laid a hedge that had become very straggly and poor – it is now flourishing. We also have put up bird boxes of different sizes and shapes for a variety of birds.  Our guests have noticed the following birds on the farm: red kite, buzzard, tawny owl, skylark, blue tit, chaffinch, greenfinch, goldfinch, wheatear, cuckoo, wren, house sparrow, dunnock, blackcap, chiffchaff, mistle thrush, song thrush, linnet, redstart, green woodpecker, lesser spotted woodpecker, swallow, house martin, robin, blackbird, wood pigeon, pheasant, bullfinch rook, crow, jackdaw and possibly a willow warbler.

Whatever the season, we hope that you will have a memorable and relaxing holiday here at Ty Gwyn.

Granary Cottage

Guestbook

Fantastic warm cosy getaway with stunning views.Granary Cottage was immaculately clean and the perfect size for our mother and daughter getaway. Both bedrooms are en suite which gives that little extra luxury and isn’t often the case in 2 bedrooms properties. It’s in a remote location up beautiful winding roads but at the same time is only 10 minutes drive from the town of Llandrindod Wells which has all the facilities needed eg supermarkets, local shops, pharmacy, train station, library. In the cottage we arrived to the beds all made up and lovely plump towels in each bathroom. It’s been converted beautifully with visible beams and a large celiac window in the living room (which is upstairs). From here the views of the mountains, complete with sheep of course, are absolutely stunning. The owners are friendly and helpful but also won’t intrude on your stay at all, despite living in the farmhouse next door. Overall we had a fantastic time and we’re so happy we found this accommodation. We felt it was also magnificent value for money.
