Ty Gwyn Farmhouse is both spacious and cosy. Enjoyed cooking on the Rayburn, relaxing by the log fire and watching the waves rolling over Whitesands beach. Ty arbennig ac hanesyddol.

Ty Gwyn is the house with the most character we've stayed at and by far the best location.

Excellent position close to the beach and coastal walks nice views from the windows. Saw the ponies at St David's Head and toasted marshmallows. Ideal position for visiting resorts north and south, which we did on a few occasions. All in all the family had a lovely holiday. Will recommend to family and friends!

Our family has been coming on holiday to Whitesands for over 50 years. It was our first time at Ty Gwyn, and we have had a fantastic time We've enjoyed surfing and walks to St David's Head to watch the sunset. The house has been wonderful cosy and full of character. Falling asleep to the sound of the waves has been a real break. Thank you for sharing your magical house with us.
