The Owl House at Tanyfoel is separate and self-contained building within the Tanyfoel Farm boundary, and is across the farmyard from the owner's farmhouse.  It was the original building on the site and pre-dates the farmhouse by many years. For maximum privacy, we designed the layout and orientation of the conversion so that it faces away from the house.

We aimed to keep the barn's timeless features on the outside, but contemporary, comfortable, and cosy on the inside.

The main entrance is on the ground floor, into the fitted kitchen with Rangemaster and AEG appliances, and luxury 'leathered' granite surfaces. The copper-look cookware, matching toaster and kettle brings you the very latest in kitchen design. A twelve-place dishwasher leaves you to enjoy extra time with your friends and family.

The adjoining dining room has a stunning double aspect giving views across the Graig Ddu and Alan valleys, no matter where you are seated at the sturdy oak table. With plenty of room for all twelve persons to be seated, no elbows need to be tucked in to eat the meal. Denby Stoneware crockery with matching serving dishes cater for every occasion and meal. Crystal glass and beautiful stainless steel cutlery compliments the crockery.

The lounge is up the spiral staircase, where you'll find a huge leather settee which will easily seat nine plus a few little extra bums. There is a separate area within the main lounge for playing board games or cards, or planning the next days activities. There's a relaxing reading chair if someone wants to be 'in on the action' but slightly away from the madding crowd!

Two bedrooms (one en-suite) and the bunk room are on the ground floor, as is the family shower room with WC, and a separate WC. Go up the second staircase for two more bedrooms (one en-suite) and a small quiet lounge and reading area.

The heating and hot water system is powered by a solar/biomass boiler plant. Guests can adjust the room thermostats for their comfort. 

There are smoke alarms, fire blankets, extinguishers, and fire exits to the satisfaction of local inspectors.

Guests have a dedicated high capacity washer-dryer in the external utility room.

Outside we have a large deck area with stunning views, a lower seating area with fixed picnic tables, and a stone barbecue for your use.


We have ample parking onsite, with dedicated guest spaces that are sited so as not to impede the views.

Being a former hill farm, Tanyfoel is on a sloping plot, and the ground can be challenging for the less able.
