With origins dating back to the early 19th Century, the main house is an attractive property combining charming characteristics with modern family living. There are three double bedrooms which have shared access of a family bathroom, as well as a large balcony area with far reaching views, down the valley. The property has been restored with sustainability in mind, with the entire heating (underfloor) and hot water system powered by a ground source heat pump, as well as 14 solar panels offsetting the electrical costs. Furthermore, extensive insulation throughout the property has helped it to achieve an EPC rating of C78, which is exceptionally high for a property of this age.

The current owners have established a highly successful business in recent years thanks to the two individual barn conversions and the incredible grounds they are situated in. The barns have the added feature of being highly sustainable, with a biomass boiler powering both properties heating systems, and 16 solar panels off setting electricity use. The business

comes with a bespoke website (, as well as a five star rating on Sykes Holiday Cottages and, in recent years, has seen earnings of up to £50,000 per annum.

Tanyfoel also offers the opportunity to grow and potentially extend/expand, to include glamping, shepherd huts or log cabins (subject to necessary consents and planning), thanks to the site’s impressive features, views, and situation in respect to some of Wales’ most renowned tourist locations.

With the UK’s commitment to be carbon neutral by 2050 fast approaching, Tanyfoel is well advanced in its quest to be fully self-sufficient. The main property benefits from ground-source central heating, as well as the electricity supply being offset by solar panels and private drainage systems for both the barns and main house. The barns are heated by a biomass boiler fuelled by wood sourced from the woodlands, within the property’s land. A productive growing area produces a wide range of vegetables, fruits and herbs, whilst naturally growing edible fungi and fruits can be acquired from the surrounding land and woodlands. There is also the ability to keep livestock and poultry as additional food sources.
