About

Tim Bowen Antiques

Tim Bowen Antiques specialise in Welsh and British country furniture, folk art, treen & country pottery.

The gallery is situated in the estuary village of Ferryside, which is at the mouth of the river Towy, just south of Carmarthen.

We sell directly from our website, catalogue or via our gallery.

Gallery open Friday & Saturday 10am – 5pm or by appointment. 

We produce regular catalogues which we send by post or email.

The Bowens

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 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.

Gallery

The gallery, of approximately 1500 square feet, covers two floors.

This provides an opportunity to view beautiful country furniture and objects in peaceful surroundings overlooking the estuary to Llanstephan and Laugharne.
