Tŷ Newydd is a Grade II* listed building, and was originally built in the 15th century as a timber-framed house where the dining room currently stands.
The hearth was in the centre of the house, with additional rooms in which to prepare food and sleep. The timber walls were later replaced by stone ones, and a second floor added. The inner wall from this period has only recently been discovered, and has been rebuilt in the room where it would have originally stood.
16th century parish records reveal that the house was owned by Rowland Owen.
During the Open Day the public will have the opportunity to access the whole house, including guided tours of the bedrooms and libraries, and the chance to enjoy the listed gardens.
Tea and coffee, cake and traditional Welsh soup will be available to purchase.
