Ty Tarw

2 bedrooms – sleeps 4

Access for wheelchair user who can manage 2 steps


Ty Tarw is one of the the oldest buildings at Cwmiar, built at the same time or before the mill. It is a crogloft – one of the first buildings to have sleeping accommodation in the loft and may date back to the Middle Ages. The building was renovated to keep the original style as much as modern convenience allows while also providing a comfortable holiday cottage.

Ty Tarw living area

The door opens into a hallway which has two steps up to the open plan living area.  There is a wood-burning stove in the magnificent inglenook fireplace, a dining area and kitchen. The kitchen area has a dishwasher, microwave and family-size electric cooker. A fridge-freezer and washer/dryer are under the stairs.

Ty Tarw bed 2Also on the ground floor is the second bedroom with a double bed and wardrobe with integral drawers. Next door to the bedroom is the bathroom with toilet, hand-basin and bath with electric shower over.

This cottage is suitable for a wheelchair user who can manage the two steps from the hallway to the living area.

Mezzanine Level

The galleried double bedroom of Ty Tarw is very spacious. It contains a king size bed from where you can look over the living area of this cosy cottage.

The head board, bedside units and dressing table are all hand made from our own wood cut from trees which fell down in a storm several years ago. There is also a wardrobe and chest of drawers.

Ty Tarw has it’s own patio with barbecue and garden furniture. You can sit and relax, watch the sheep and ponies (in the spring/early summer with lambs and foals) peacefully graze on the mountain only a few yards away. Or watch our own lovely Welsh Black cattle in the adjacent field.
