Stayed at Ty Hir with husband, his brother and family and my mom and sisters for New Years. It was a superb stay- we loved the fact that we had stoves to heat the house and it was so big and spacious, everyone could disappear and do their own thing without bothering anyone else! We stayed an extra night without any fuss. The owners- Sonia and Gerald were amazing hosts- they made sure that we were comfortable and had everything we needed.
The place was gorgeous- even though we did not have the greatest weather- we still walked around a bit and got to know the area. There is a lot of history at Ty Hir and Gerald was happy to tell us about it (there is a good printout that you can have a read of) - they do provide really good instructions on how to use everything as well as visitor info for what to do in the area and what is available.
It was a perfect stay and we will happily stay here again.
We did have a few minor hiccups (the property is quite old!!) but they were taken care of really quickly and we had no complaints.
If you decide to go for a holiday in this part of Wales then Ty Hir is the place to stay!!! Thank you to the Marsh Family for an excellent break from all of us!!
