Ty Llwyd was built in 1876 for local ship owner Harry Cohen. Full of original features, the stained-glass windows in the lounge depict the relationship between King Arthur and Guinevere and the search for the Holy Grail. It was requisitioned in 1944 for the use of the United States Air Force, and there remains a very interesting piece of history left behind at the property dating back to that time. In the 1950s, the property was split into two and Ty Llwyd had unfortunately fallen into disrepair by the time the current owners purchased it in the 1990s. Since then, this magnificent home has been lovingly restored and extended.
