Dôl-Llys Housing Ltd was formed in 1992 by 6 families as a housing co-operative. It was originally a regency country house but then empty and owned by Powys County Council. The house is divided into 7 private, self contained flats of varying size, one of which is rented. We also have some communal rooms in the house and share all the outdoor space. New members buy into the co-operative through purchasing loan stock giving them a 1/6th ownership of the entire property and grounds. Daily life at Dôl-Llys is more in line with co-housing. A key difference is that we are not an “intentional community” in the general ideological sense. We have different outlooks and lifetyles; our focus is mainly practical and is centred on sharing and caring for communal space, green space and some material resources. We share workloads equitably and this means we can all enjoy and benefit from sharing the house and gardens. By meeting, working co-operatively and eating together each month we are able to build friendly neighbourly relationships. If you are interested in living at Dôl-Llys, please contact the Membership Secretary via the Dôl-Llys website or by email firstname.lastname@example.org for the latest information on the availability of shares. For more information please follow the link to our web site. Our vision – Dôl Llys Hall is a co-operative and co-housing community which has at its core the provision of homes for its members. In achieving this, we aim to preserve and enhance the building and grounds and aspire to be low impact and respectful of the natural environment. We wish to be open and welcoming, and to engage with the local community, making the best use of the resources we have available. And to leave it a better place for those who follow.
