I have been holidaying in Borth y Gest for several years and my mother before me. We have just been very lucky to buy a house on Ralph St called Gowerian. I understand that the house was named after a ship that apparently sank. Does anyone have my information about this ship or indeed the house itself.....maybe a captain resided there ? Would love a picture of the “Gowerian”and any information Thank you
Hello I am researching my family tree and have close ties and very fond memories of Borth y gest. My grandmother lived at Terfyn in Mersey Street for many years along with my mother aunt and uncle's. My mother grew up at a house called Llety behind borth woods from 1936 till they moved to Terfyn. Would anybody have a photo of Llety they could post up please...... Thank you in advance Jayne
Paul Ashton has great memories of happy holidays in Borth y Gest as a teenager when a guest in the home of Chris Moore and his family - it was a magical place and despite changes over the years keeps its special aura........... we look forward to many more visits
I am Anne Keating (nee Drake) and was on holiday at the outbreak of war and stayed there for the duration. My Grannie owned Wendon where Marjorie & Olive were evacuated, I remember them both, we were all about the same age. I would be happy to catch up and speak with anyone involved. I own a small cottage in Glynn Terrace which is let for holidays. Contact 0161 928 4961 07748 44 6058.
