Taliesin Housing Co-operative purchased Temperance House in Machynlleth, Wales, with a loan from Triodos Bank. It is a lovely house, in a beautiful location which would benefit from more enthusiastic community minded folk to help move the Co-op forward a bit. We are based in the Dyfi valley, West Wales, an area full of woodlands,nature reserves and beautiful beaches. We are close to the sea ( you can see it from the house!) and a bus ride away from Machynlleth (quirky/alternative market town) and Aberystwyth (lively seaside town with independant shops and thriving music scene). There is an alternative, political scene in the area which is well integrated with the local Welsh community and great outdoors.There are many local groups and social activities to get involved in.We share the cost of all bills and running of the house and also have shared basic foods, we eat together when we can but this is not always practical due to people’s different schedules.

Taliesin Housing Co-operative is currently looking for new members

We currently have a compact double room available to rent in the eaves of the house, on the top floor. We are looking for a new member who would be up for sharing with our assortment of animals and children! As the room is a fairly small room, it would only really be suitable for a single person and therefore not suitable for couples or people with children.Someone enthusiastic about communal living and gardening would be ideal. We are a friendly sociable bunch who enjoy dancing, festivals, cooking and socials as well as a bit of peace and tranquility too!Rent is £175 pcm. Shared bills are £77pcm per person.
