Meet Leanne and Graham!Graham, Leanne, and their 3 son's, bought Tegfan Bungalow in 2018. They opened their doors in the Summer of 2018 and haven't looked back.
They loved letting out this bungalow so much, they opened the doors of Tegfan Barn in 2020!
Graham and Leanne only live up the road so are always on hand if anyone has any questions, or just wanting a chit chat.
The EnvironmentSurrounding both of their wonderful properties are plenty of livestock - sheep, cows and even horses! Not forgetting the fabulous view of the Cambrian Mountains.
Amazing. Highly recommended

I cannot say how much we thoroughly enjoyed our week away at Tegfan barn. It is absolutely stunning and there is literally everything that you need. No phone signal, which was actually a blessing! This definitely added to the tranquillity. There is free WiFi there, so for those who are into their socials can definitely keep updated. The owner Leanne and her husband were absolutely amazing. They couldn’t do enough for you. They are located at the top of the drive and are always on hand should you need them. We’re smallholders and I always miss my animals when I’m away. I had a chat with Leanne and she kindly let her sheep into the field outside the barn doors. The hot tub is also very relaxing. I enjoyed a late night soak while watching the stars. We loved this stay so much that we have re-booked for 2 weeks next year. We cannot thank them enough for the perfect stay.
An excellent stay in beautiful Mid Wales

The cottage was absolutely beautiful and incredibly peaceful. The breakfast hamper was awesome as was the view whilst eating it! The location was ideal as it’s a stone throw from the Elan Valley – there’s great hiking and adventure activities. The Hot tub and fire pit were great additions also. Super clean, super comfortable – highly recommended. Thanks guys 🙂 x
