Ty Coch ('The Red House' in Welsh) is an award winning, fully intact Victorian water mill and bed and breakfast located in the heart of Mid Wales. The traditional Welsh longhouse is believed to date from 1650 and the adjacent overshot water wheel was built in the early 1900's to power the traditional carpentry workshop. We offer a unique opportunity to stay in this historic working water mill and are happy to run demonstrations on request.
Whether you are passing through, staying for the weekend or planning a week's holiday, Ty Coch is the ideal place to re-charge your batteries while experiencing something truly unique. Located in the quiet Welsh village of Pontdolgoch, Ty Coch is ideally situated for exploring some of the best sights and attractions Wales has to offer. We are within an easy drive of Snowdonia National Park, the Brecon Beacons and Portmeirion, while the surrounding Cambrian Mountains and Severn Valley offer superb opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts.
