Ty Nancy consists of two late 18th century Grade 2 listed cottages, converted into one. It has recently been thoroughly renovated and is spacious and comfortable while retaining enormous character and charm. It has a small secluded garden, which contains the ancient 'cowled' spring which was once the principal water source for local people.
Located on Quickwell Hill, near the centre of St Davids, close to shops and cathedral and 10 minutes walk from the sea.
About the Owner
Until 2009, the cottage was the home of the late Nancy Bayly nee Howell, a well-known and much-loved figure in the area - the cathedral flag flew at half-mast for her funeral, and the Lifeboat Association provided a guard of honour. Her family have lived in and around St Davids for several centuries. They were particularly interested in ornithology, and Captain Howell's egg collection was bequeathed to the National Museum of Wales.
Captain Howell was also responsible for registering the corgi as a breed. He gave the current queen a corgi which she named 'Biscuit.'
Nancy left her cottage to her nieces and nephew, who spent many holidays with her when they were children. She would be very happy to know that her cottage was being used by holiday-makers, and would want them to have a wonderful time.
