Tŷ Newydd, the National Centre for Writing in Wales, is a renowned writing centre at Llanystumdwy, near Cricieth, in Gwynedd, north-west Wales. It is in the former home of David Lloyd George, the Welsh politician who served as British Prime Minister during the First World War. It offers courses in creative writing, in both the Welsh language and English, as well as regular seminars and forums. The historic house itself is of considerable architectural interest. The name 'Tŷ Newydd' translates literally from Welsh to 'New House'.
