Why you love Ty Gwyn Farmhouse
First time at Ty Gwyn – superb and magical location.
Marsland
It was our first time here and we loved the character of the cottage and the stunning views. A wonderful time was had by all!
Evans
Our 21st year at Ty Gwyn! As usual, a fantastic time…already counting the days ‘til next year!
Evans
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.
Van Marle
This is our second visit to Ty Gwyn, and we are still in agreement that this is a very charming house in a stunning location. Thank you.
Corrigan
Beautiful location, and we loved the history of the house. Lovely, thanks.
Anon
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!

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