  • “Just returned home from a very relaxing family holiday, that’s with three children!”

    They and us adults had the most wonderful family get together in their beautiful house, the garden and hot tub were so much fun for all the family young and old. ...

    They and us adults had the most wonderful family get together in their beautiful house, the garden and hot tub were so much fun for all the family young and old. With a log fire to take the chill from the evening air, evenings were so cosy. The games and play things for the children were just amazing. I have never seen so much provided in a holiday house before. We really would love to return one day. The countryside around the house is spectacular ( beautiful,beautiful Wales ) so peaceful on top of the world.

The property

A 16th Century farmhouse, Ty Ffarm at Gellilwch has been lovingly converted into a spacious and luxurious holiday home, offering the ultimate ‘croeso’ to Wales.

With breathtaking views across the South Wales valleys, Ty Ffarm sits peacefully in the countryside above the market town of Pontypridd and just a 20 minute drive from the capital city, Cardiff.

It is ideally located for exploring everything South Wales has to offer with excellent restaurants, pubs, shops and attractions just a short drive away.

The stunning property maintains many of its original features, including a large ‘inglenook’ and fireplaces, combining modern designs and amenities with all the charm of a traditional Welsh farmhouse.

The beautifully designed kitchen/diner is the heart of the farmhouse, centred by a large handmade timber dining table, fireplace with wood-burning stove and contemporary lighting.

The kitchen area is ideal for hosting parties or dinners with family and friends and the farmhouse’s original walk-in cold room, perfect for chilling drinks and food also has an additional fridge/freezer.

It comes equipped with everything you need for a party of 10-12 people.

Also downstairs are two large sitting rooms to relax and unwind in - one is a charming traditional Welsh farmhouse inglenook room with a magnificent woodburner and the other a modern stylish lounge .

Both have ample comfortable seating with TVs and DVD players, as well as a selection of books and games, which can be tailored to suit any age.

Ty Ffarm is ideal for those with a love of the great outdoors and features a ground floor ‘boot room’ with sink, perfect for storing coats and wellies or cleaning up after long walks in the countryside.

With exposed stonework together with its crystal chandelier and stylish tiling, the spacious bathroom is a wonderful mix of traditional and modern design. Ty Ffarm is just as impressive on the outside too.
