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

"Finally a holiday that felt like a holiday! The Straw Cottage should be on prescription. We all had an amazing, relaxing time, walking in the hills, going on a treasure hunt. (Thank you so much what a fabulous idea) and playing games around the fire. Sometimes a real 'escape' from all the noise is needed (especially 10 days out from a general election!) To anyone reading this in the summer and thinking this place is a fair weather retreat only - you are wrong! It's been so cosy in the dark nights amd the colours in the Beacons and Elan Valley were incredible - nature at its best. Even so, we''ll be back to try out the hammock and marshmallows next summer! Thank you so much Margot & Anthony for your kind and thoughtful hosting." Alison, Samir & Naya  November 2019

"The Straw Cottage - Amazing,idyllic place to stay. So peaceful and quiet a truly relaxing little break away from the world. Really well set up with the multiple places to sit outside in the sun & the comfy sofas & fire to make it all cosy in the evening.  Margot was really helpful & it's a great idea to have a map of the farm, even if we did still get lost! Highly recommend going for a day out to the Elan Valley, it's beautiful & the Thai food from Drovers in Howey. We got a takeaway and it was fab! The dogs also had the best time with all the freedom to crash around exploring the little forest. 10/10 best place I've ever stayed,"Rebecca and Anne. + Mauli & Shanna (dogs).  September 2019

"A wonderfully idylic spot - the perfect hideaway, full of home comforts. We loved exploring the stream, Ruby loved the swing especially - a real winner! We all enjoyed the treasure hunt - such a fab idea. William loved hunting for blackberries and finding sticks! Thank you for a wonderful stay."  Jasmine, Chris, Ruby (5) & William (2). August 2019.

  "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
