History of The Ty Coch Inn

Ty Coch itself was built in 1823.  It was built out of red brick which was imported through the port of Porthdinllaen from Holland.  It was probably brick which was used as ballast for a ship which had taken granite from here to Holland. The cellar is much older than this and down there we have windows and a fireplace which are now below ground level.

For the first five years of its life it was the vicarage for the vicar of Edern.  In 1828 a vicarage was built next to the church and eventually Ty Coch ceased to be the second vicarage as the vicar The Rev. John Parry Jones Parry moved out entirely leaving his housekeeper, Catherine Ellis to open the building as an Inn in 1842 to supply refreshment to the shipbuilding workforce who worked on the beach.

Ty Coch was in competition, certainly with the Whitehall Inn and reputedly at one time, a total of four other pubs on the beach.

Only Ty Coch survives as a pub today.
