Resident Engineer's House

The Engineer’s House, or Pen y Garreg bungalow, is located above the Pen y Garreg dam. It was built in the 19th century as temporary accommodation for the main dam engineer, Eustace Tickell and his team, and retains almost all of its original Victorian features.  The house remains an interesting historical remnant.  Its remote location in such a beautiful natural environment makes it an extraordinary destination and a source of inspiration. 

This project will see the building sympathetically restored. It will become a fit for purpose space to accommodate people who wish to stay at Elan Valley, including artists taking part in residencies.  Open days will be held each year to enable general access to the house.
