Tyllicci Farm is a substantial livestock holding that in all extends to a considerable 104 acres and comprises a spacious three bedroom detached bungalow, the original farmhouse and a terrific range of modern and traditional stone buildings. The property is nestled in the heart of the Breconshire Countryside situated approximately equidistant between the market towns of Brecon, Hay-on-Wye and Builth Wells.

Tyllicci is largely south facing and enjoys some of the most terrific and panoramic views towards the Brecon Beacons mountain range and adjoining Llandefalle and Llangoed Commons. Hence, the property offers terrific and significant equestrian and recreational possibilities. A feature of the property is the existing traditional stone barns and particularly the existence of the original farmhouse which is in reasonable order but has not been occupied since the construction of the bungalow.

The sale of Tyllicci Farm represents a rare and fantastic opportunity to purchase a very useful commercial farming unit in a renowned livestock area and whilst it has historically been utiltised as a working farm the diversification opportunities are endless.


Tyllicci Farm is approached via what is essentially its own private but council-maintained tarmacadam road. Whilst the main farmstead is situated within one ring fence it provides access from both adjoining commons which will become apparent upon viewing. The land adjoins both the Llandefalle and the Llangoed Common.

The nearest village of Llyswen is only a short distance away and the larger market town of Brecon is only a ten minute drive. Llyswen is a popular village set in the Wye Valley equidistant between Hay On Wye and Brecon. It offers good basic amenities in the form of two public houses, a new village primary school, village shop & filling station plus other smaller amenities. More comprehensive facilities can be found in the regional towns of Brecon, Hay-on-Wye and Builth Wells where there is a choice of supermarkets, convenience stores and general amenities. Brecon offers a leisure centre complex, theatre and cinema etc.

Tyllicci Farm is situated outside the Brecon Beacons National Park.


Tyllicci Bungalow represents a spacious and detached three bedroom bungalow constructed in 1982 and is surrounded by its own lawned gardens.

Original Farmhouse

The original farmhouse of Tyllicci (in which the current vendor previously resided) is still situated on the farmstead and is in relatively good structural order. The roof has been maintained which has kept the property dry but it has not been occupied for a number of years. In recent years it has been used as storage of tools and equipment for the farm.

Many of the original features of the property still exist and whilst the property has been uninhabited since the construction of the new bungalow, current planning policy now appears to be more favourable in respect of the renovation of these types of properties.

The potential purchasers must make their own investigations in respect of the potential planning that may be granted.

This is a detached building and comprises two receptions rooms with fireplaces, rear store room and pantry on the ground floor with a timber staircase leading to what was three bedrooms on the first floor.

The property is still connected to a mains electricity & private water supply. It has superb views towards The Black Mountains.

The accommodation comprises:

Kitchen 5.142m x 3.496 with existing old fireplace

Lounge 2.985m x 5.201m

Pantry 1.97m x 7.151m

Timber staircase leading to

Bedroom One 5.289m (max) x 3.49m

Bedroom Two 3.379m x 2.58m (max)

Bedroom Three 3.379m x 2.7m (max)


Tyllicci Farm boasts a superb and varied range of modern and traditional outbuildings. These buildings are well equipped and have currently been used to house livestock and fodder on the farm. The buildings have been well maintained having the benefit of both an electricity and water supply. Continued expenditure and investment has taken place over recent years. There are a range of traditional stone buildings on the farmstead itself, with a further separate detached stone barn, known as Cilyronnen, situated approximately 200 yards from the farmstead. This has been well maintained and currently used for machinery storage purposes. Such a barn would lend itself to conversion subject to the relevant planning consents. At one time this property, was a separate smallholding and had its own separate access which can still be seen today.

Modern Portal Frame Cattle Shed 17.93m x 11.97 with feed passage, concrete floors (sloping)

The Land

Tyllicci Farm extends to a considerable 104 acres to include the farm houses and extensive range of buildings. The land has been extremely well maintained throughout, particularly in respect of the enclosure boundaries with every gate on the farm swinging which is an accolade to the current owner.

The farm is currently laid down to pasture and is in very good heart and could easily produce an arable crop.

The land has been split into good size enclosures for the ease of management and all of which have the benefit of a natural water supply via streams or water troughs. The main farm holding (Lot 1) also benefits from an area of open natural and native wooded glade, that provides a terrific area for grazing and shelter. It also provides for an increasingly valuable woodland resource. All of the land is traversable by four-wheel drive vehicles.
