Our children were genuinely spellbound as the guide transported them back to the Tudor times with the most engaging visit to a NT property I have ever enjoyed. The guide was so enthusiastic and informative. He possesses an incredible talent for making history come alive...More

After driving through really fabulous scenery we came to Ty Mawr which is a really adorable rustic stone house in the middle of nowhere. Our guide is a most amusing man who told us the stories of the former inhabitants and their harrowing tribulations. Imagine...More

This is quite possibly the most remote National Trust site I've been to on the UK mainland. A long narrow road takes you to the house which is nestled at the bottom of a valley a few miles from Penmachno. Our guide has lived in...More

This National Trust property was the birthplace of (Bishop) William Morgan, (in 1545), who first translated the whole of the Bible into Welsh. The small house is approached along some very narrow tracks, (drivers beware), and the car park is a 500 yard walk away....More
