Granary Cottage

Guestbook

We have visited Ty Gwyn Farm for relaxing holidays for the last five years and plan to go annually in future years for as long as we are able! If you want isolation and peace with "civilisation" not too far away, Ty Gwyn is for you. The owners, Margot and Anthony, are a lovely couple who will give you a warm welcome and have plenty of suggestions concerning places to walk, visit and explore. The scenery in this part of the world is nothing short of exquisite. Plenty of country pursuits available to satisfy every taste. Granary Cottage is extremely comfortable and cosy. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !! Jerry and Mary Chance
