Ty Uchaf (try pronouncing that whilst ‘over-refreshed’) is situated in the Nant Gwrtheyrn valley on the dramatic north coast of the Llyn Peninsula in Gwynedd. Originally an agricultural community, the area became a thriving centre for granite mining in the 18th and 19th centuries and one of three mines in the area, the Cae’r-nant Quarry, is situated on the property.
Though the mines and minerals underneath the farm are specifically excluded from the sale, the former quarry is described as “integral [ to the] industrial heritage of the area.” The farmstead itself, meanwhile, is of stone construction under a slate roof and includes a farmhouse and outbuildings that “have the scope to provide a unique family or second home in this beautiful location.”
Also included in the sale is a stretch of shingle beach with views as far as South Stack on Anglesey, 23 acres of pasture grazing suitable for sheep and cattle and 180 acres of heather hill land. There are small areas of woodland throughout with a mixture of mature broadleaf and coniferous trees.
Whilst the nearest settlement, Nant Gwrtheyrn, largely emptied when demand for granite setts for road building declined just prior to the onset of the Second World War, it is now once again prosperous and has been developed into a Welsh language educational and heritage centre.

Crypto crook Sam Bankman-Fried astonishingly gets to hang out with the author of ‘The Big Short’ in spite of being on £207 million bail and now has not only Ghislaine Maxwell’s lawyer onside but also Prince Andrew’s judge to face also.
Matthew Steeples highlights how the ‘Mandelson Media Method’ is very much in play in both the case of the Prince Andrew-Jeffrey Epstein connection and the renewed interest in the Madeleine McCann disappearance.
As author Kirby Sommers suggests that the then Meghan Markle likely spent time with Prince Andrew and Jeffrey Epstein before she met Prince Harry, we again highlight the mucky, murkiness and mendacious manner of this alleged “yacht girl.”
As mucky madam Ghislaine Maxwell is moved to a low security prison in Florida where prisoners will supposedly likely “hate” her, PR peddler Jay Beecher’s ‘The Maxwell Files’ website bizarrely starts promoting organic vegetables in Sussex and lists stories about this anything but wholesome criminal as “recipes.”
