Hywel Roberts Life History

June 19, 2018

Hywel Roberts, who moved stateside 20 years ago, was visiting the area with an American tour group he had organised to explore north Wales. The group stayed at Tan y Gader, a luxury guesthouse in Dolgellau, which formerly served as the town’s maternity home between 1939 and 1974.

Guesthouse owner Jayne Lacey said: “Hywel told us he was born at Tan y Gader and lived in Arthog and felt very moved and emotional when shown the room where he was born, which is now called The Secret Garden room.




“He now lives in America where he moved many years ago and has resided for some time.

“From here, he runs his touring group called ‘Wild Wales Tours and Walkabouts’ bringing Americans to north Wales.


“He moved to the US to see some more of the world, but enjoys coming back where he still knows many people here.”


Whilst in town, Hywel and his group enjoyed a range of activities including wine tasting at Dylanwad, a visit to Castell y Bere, food at The Royal Ship Hotel and Tafarn y Gader, climbed Cader Idris, walked the Mawddach Estuary, and visited Fairbourne Railway.
