[Photograph by Rebecca Goodyear, one of our guests]

'Minafon' means “river’s edge”, and the house is at the junction at which three streams meet, forming the River Teigl. It was built in the mid nineteenth century as a schoolhouse for the local chapel. It became a home in the late nineteenth century. The living room, with its sloping ceiling, was once the cattle shed.
