This is a cottage to impress - from the blissfully quiet, rural location to the unique features and high quality finish, the games room, woodburners and breathtaking views. Newly renovated from a traditional Welsh barn, this stylish hideaway is perfect for your group get-together and can host everyone together in a large living / dining area. You also have the option of dividing the cottage into two self contained units (Beudy Tanllan and Ysgubor Tanllan). Set in an enclosed gated area, with its own patio area, it offers a stunning and generous landscape to explore in the immediate surroundings.

Oak beams and slate floors lend a cosy and rustic feel to the whole ground floor. A well equipped kitchen with electric hob and oven, microwave, fridge freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine.

The kitchen opens onto the open plan dining / living area where the dining table is positioned in front of the patio doors to take full advantage of the breath-taking views of the valley and Cambrian Mountains beyond.

The spacious living area offers underfloor heating, slate floor, and patio doors opening up to stunning countryside views.

To Summarise - a word from the owners...

The local area has so much to offer and you can have some amazing day trips, but we really love life in our little patch of Mid Wales and feel that you can have the most memorable adventures right here where the pace of life slows down and you feel at one with nature. Climb a hill, watch the sunrise or sunset, build a den, dam a brook, listen to the birds singing, play pooh stick on the little bridge down the lane, read a book in the open air, fill a sketchbook with drawings and paintings, the list goes on.


This property was really fitted and decorated to the highest standard. The place was exceptionally clean and I have very high standards, so they were met really well! The equipment in the kitchen was great. The location lovely and quiet. About 5 miles from the nearest town. The owners were lovely and couldn’t be more friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed the stay and would highly recommend it.

Mrs K,

Although quite remote the barns are amazing, beautifully decorated, well equipped and either a brilliant base for exploring or comfortable enough for just spending the time chilling out. We are already making plans to return!

Mr W,

This was our second stay at this lovely property and it was as amazing as the first one. We loved the views and tranquility, it’s a truly special place! The house is so cozy and has everything we needed (if I may suggest, cover over the sitting area outside would be nice), beds are super comfy, game room is a bonus, kids had plenty of room inside and outside and all had a blast! Definitely recommend it and would love to return.

Mrs F,

Really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful property. We were surrounded by gorgeous views and the vibe was just great. The owners of the property were super helpful and friendly, we enjoyed their story of the renovating the property into the stunning place it is now. We came prepared with lots of food and drinks so the shops not being close was not an issue. We enjoyed trips to the local coast during the day then sitting by the fire under the stars in the eve!

Miss R,


This amazing barn conversion is in a blissfully quiet location where you can escape and relax in 5 star surroundings. Part of a traditional Welsh farmstead, it has been lovingly restored and renovated by its owners, National Trust Ranger and Art teacher, Rhodri and Elinor, who will be sure to give you a warm Welsh welcome. Enjoy the truly breath-taking views, watch red kites from your window, or explore Glyndwr’s Way just half a mile from the barn.

Llety Tanllan is surrounded by fields and organic farmland yet easily accessible, just 2 miles off the A470, and 7 miles from the vibrant market town of Machynlleth with its array of shops, pubs and cafes. It is also home to the old Welsh Parliament, dating back to 1404 and the oldest street market in Britain (every Wednesday). Head out to the beautiful beach at Aberdyfi (17 miles), or seek out adventures in the Snowdonia National Park in less than 15 minutes.

Amongst the best places to eat in the area are Number Twenty One Bistro and Wynnstay Hotel in Machynlleth (7 miles), Brigands Inn in Mallwyd (9 miles), Glan yr Afon in Pennal and for traditional pub food, Llew Coch in Dinas Mawddwy (both 11 miles). For take-away, Hennighans' Fish & Chip Shop of the Year is recommended, as well as Penrhos Arms. For fine dining, Ynyshir Hall (13 miles) has to be the one, with accolades such as a Michelin Star and 5 AA Rosettes, as well as appearing at no. 12 in the Good Food Guide 2017/18 and no. 15 in Harden's Best UK Restaurants 2017/2018. The nearest good pub can be found in Glantwymyn (3.5 miles), called Dyfi Valley Hotel.

Talyllyn narrow gauge railway offers a great day out, as does the Centre for Alternative Technology, a range of legendary castles (such as Castell y Bere and Harlech), Ynys Hir Nature Reserve and Dyfi Osprey Project, King Arthur’s Labyrinth and Corris Craft Centre. Also highly recommended is Coed y Brenin's mountain biking centre and a trip to Aberystywth (home to the National Library of Wales, the largest Arts Centre in Wales etc). On the way home, treat yourself to a fine meal and a film at Libanus 1877 (Boutique cinema and restaurant) in Borth.
