Penylan Farm, home of Ty Gwyn Cider

Oh, I do like to stay beside the cider farm…

Ty Gwyn Holidays are based at Penylan Farm in Herefordshire’s Golden Valley. The farm was derelict when we moved here in 2014, but it’s now the home to the Culpin family, The Cider Shack, Yarlington Dairy and, of course, Ty Gwyn Cider!

Done the Dairy?! Discover Ty Gwyn’s other holiday accommodation, the completely unique Cider Shack. You may have seen it on the telly – it was a star of the BBC’s ‘My Unique B&B’. This cosy cabin suits couples or solo travellers who adore the outdoors and crave the quirky but love a few little luxuries.

Discover the Dairy!

The Cider Shack has a cottage-shaped cousin: Yarlington Dairy. It’s a beautiful new holiday let with stunning views of the Monnow Valley. Quiet, comfortable and boasting a luxury bath in the bedroom, it’s perfect for couples on their own, or with a baby or toddler (and/or a dog or two)!
