Ty Newydd Farmhouse
Built in the mid 1800’s, Ty Newydd Farmhouse has always worked hard for its living. Over the years it has seen many changes including the effects of the industrial revolution when the Mon and Brec Canal was built through its farmland and saw coal and lime been delivered down the valley. 130 years ago Farmer William Hall lived here with his wife and 10 children. Today it is home to our family and 8 to 10 guests. It was a house built for lots of people and has always provided a home and income to those living there.
The Griffiths Family
I live here at Ty Newydd with my husband Sid and our two children. It was in the late 80’s, Sids parents bought Ty Newydd and dug out the marina and started Cambrian Cruisers holiday boats. Ruth (Sids Mother) did bed and breakfast from the house for a number of years to help support the family and growing business.
Jonathan, Sids brother had more of an interest in canal boats than Sid and followed in this fathers footsteps taking over the marina and Cambrian Cruisers with his wife Camilla. It was in 2009, after twelve years of working in London, Sid had the opportunity to put his DIY skills to the test. We returned to renovate the house and resurrect the old family bed and breakfast business and to develop a new Holiday Cottage enterprise. Now the site is home to us all and our growing families. Ruth and Peter have retired to the converted Stable block to watch over our progress and are always there to offer help and advice.
