About Tim Bowen Antiques

Tim Bowen Antiques specialise in Welsh and British country furniture, folk art and contemporary Welsh art. The gallery is situated in the estuary village of Ferryside, which is at the mouth of the river Towy, just south of Carmarthen.

Tim and Betsan Bowen have run Tim Bowen Antiques since 2003 and also live in Ferryside, not far from their gallery, with their three children, two dogs, currently one cat and four hens!

They have a passion for country furniture, folk art, Welsh contemporary art and everything they sell. Tim's fascination with Welsh country furniture began when he first saw a Welsh stick chair sold in the auction room where he worked. He had found his calling and, following a few years working at the auction house, he worked for Country Antiques Kidwelly, where he became gallery manager. Here he happily learnt his trade for many years until one day, Betsan walked in and bought a chair. Tim's sales technique obviously worked, because Betsan accumulated a collection of Welsh oak over the next few years, and after a two year courtship, they were married.

The gallery, of approximately 1500 sq ft over two floors, provides an opportunity of viewing beautiful country furniture and objects in peaceful surroundings overlooking the estuary to Llanstephan and Laugharne.
