Bluebells in Tregib Woods

Waterfall at Ty Cefn Tregib
The Cib brook rushes in a little gorge through Ty Cefn Tregib overlooked by the Waterfall Pagoda Yurt and The Lookout (Tregib translates as "the homestead on the Cib" Ty Cefn "the house behind") there are plenty of places you can get down to the water to splash about.

Across the Towy to Llandeilo
Llandeilo was once the county town of Carmarthenshire. Now it is a thriving little town full of interesting shops and great pubs and eating places. This is the view from our top field.

A little flavour of the local area.

On the edge of Llandeilo is the National Trust's Dinefwr Park and Newton House, and just 3 miles down the valley are Aberglasney Gardens.
Another four miles, passing Dryslwyn Castle and Paxton's Tower will bring you to The National Botanic Garden of Wales at Llanarthne.
Going up the valley through the old drovers town of Llandovery a lovely drive will take you to Llyn Brianne reservoir, a bit of Fjordland in Wales, coming back via the Upper Cothi valley with it's ancient oak woodlands, you can call at the Roman Goldmines at Dolaucothi near Pumsaint, also owned by the National Trust, then on via the ruins of Talley Abbey back to Llandeilo.
No stay at Tregib would be complete without a visit to the spectacular Carreg Cennen Castle just 3 miles away in the Brecon Beacons National Park, a Welsh castle which was never taken by the English.
The West Wales coastline is less than an hour away to the North (Newquay, Llangranog) South (The Gower peninsula) and West (Tenby, Saundersfoot etc..) with coast path walking and lovely sandy beaches.

And of course there are glorious walks , cycling and mountainbiking routes directly from Tregib
A bit of history.
Ty Cefn Tregib has been the home of the Evans family for more than 30 years, since John and Mary Evans bought a collection of farm buildings, formerly the home farm buildings of Tregib Mansion, and later used as a groundsmen's depot for Tregib School, from the local council, and started the epic task of bringing the old buildings and the land back to life.
Living in a caravan on site, the first task was to convert the lovely old threshing barn into a spacious family home, followed a couple of years later by turning the cart shed to a separate holiday cottage and later converting the old pigsties.
The children all left home and Mary decided that all those spare bedrooms needed using. Thus started the beginning of Ty Cefn Tregib B&B
Twenty five years on, all the children are back in the immediate vicinity with their own lives and partners, Ty Cefn Tregib has evolved into our unique Glamping self catering business run by daughter Cass, helped by John & Mary.
