The guide here was interesting and engaging he answered many questions about not only this attraction but other national trust properties. He was a captivating story teller and bought the local history to life. Would definitely visit again.

This NT property is very different to the usual properties, it's a traditional upland 16th century farmhouse, with a big collection of bibles as its where William Morgan lived, who first translated the Bible into Welsh, and it's said that by doing that he saved the Welsh language,, what made it so special for me was the Guide he had...

The narrow road is well worth pursuing - both for the journey through glorious countryside and for the destination. It is amazing to find this substantial farmhouse in the middle of nowhere - and then to learn of its history and that it is situated on the old A5! Bishop Morgan was a pivotal figure in Welsh history , as... More

Four or so miles down a single-track road through a forest and you come to a small car park, seemingly in the middle of nowhere. A lone sign directs you down a few hundred metres of slate steps into a wooded valley. No house in sight. Then, suddenly, at the bottom of the steps two small stone cottages come into... More

As per previous reviews, yes the road is narrow, single track. There are passing places and the surrounding area is stunning. The guide/ curator was welcoming, informative and his passion in the place was clear to see. Last time we were here we had the pleasure to see the beautiful Red Kites catching a thermal above the house. No cafe,... More

The road to Ty Mawr isn't the best, but this adds to tge Welsh historic feel and heritage of the area. Admission is cheap and the guide is very knowledgable about the history of both the house and William Morgan. Brilliant day oit. The exhibtion is defintely worth a look.

Ty Mawr is a small National Trust house in an idyllic valley location in Snowdonia. If youwant to spend a couple of hours on a day with good weather go here and just enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. The guide actually lives in a house near to Ty Mawr itself and he is really approachable and knowledgable about the house itself... More

It's thought that 1000 of the original Welsh bibles from 1588 were published, and the whereabouts of 20 of them is known. It's incredible that you can look at a couple of them here; and they are really quite something. I arrived late in the day to visit but the custodian was nevertheless welcoming and pleased to talk about the... More

The road up to this National Trust property is steep and narrow, with few passing places, but once you get there, and set off to walk the short distance to the old house, the valley's beauty overwhelms you. William Morgan, translator of the Bible into Welsh, was born here, and the house is now restored to how it might have... More
