“Part of history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Ty Mawr should be on every visitor's itinerary. The National Trust presents it very well. The Bible is worth seeing and I seem to remember tallow, reed "candles" that can be burned at both ends simultaneously. (Hence the saying.....)

“No one at the Inn?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I visited on Good Friday 2013; travelled a long way l, out of the way (drove up and down quite dangerous terrain) but it was not open when it should have been (12 noon to 5pm). Even called the phone number but it went straight to voicemail (?) Real disappointment as National Trust are usually pretty good.

“Great expeience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

What at a wonderful little house, the resident man is just a mine of information, if there is anything he doesn't know about the house and the Welsh language then it is not worth knowing. A wonderful experience for all the family. Highly recommended

“A Very Important House years ago and today for that matter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We visited Ty Mawr the other weekend

It is set in a Tranquil part of the Country Near to Penmachno and Bettws Y Coed
It is hard to believe that this house was once set on the Busiest Road in North Wales The A5
Which Ran from Holyhead right down to London
This Was of course foot and Horse Travel including drovers who drove their cattle to sell in London
If you do get the chance to visit and are interested in Welsh History Then We think you would enjoy it
