The bungalow itself was built in 1974 close to the site of a much older house of the same name for the purpose of housing a forestry worker to manage tree planting on the larger Hafod Fraith estate of which Hendre Berfedd was part. From the Welsh language these names translate as:- "Hendre Berfedd" ......... The Old Middle Winter House "Hafod Fraith" ........... The Speckled Summer House Hendre (old house) and Hafod (summer house) arise from the past practise of Welsh shepherds moving their sheep from the lower pastures in winter to the higher mountain pastures in summer and naming their two houses accordingly.
