This was the loveliest B&B we have ever visited. The accomodations are superior quality in every detail, the breakfast was delicious and well thought out. The hosts were very helpful, knowlegeable, and active members of the community. I give the highest recommendation and would definitely return!

What a great B&B – I can’t think of anything we could have needed or wanted that wouldn’t have been made available. And, unlike some places, what was on offer wasn’t just a lovely, comfortable bedroom & bathroom with every possible edible comestible and bathroom product you can think of. In addition, there was a gorgeous dining room, a cosy... More

From the warmest of welcomes with tea and home made cake to the beautiful house and lovely breakfast I cannot recommend too highly. Great location for exploring The National Parks and close enough for time in Cardiff too.

I stayed here for two nights and highly recommend it. The house is gorgeous – I loved the decor (wood-panelled breakfast room, tapestries on the walls) and the common areas were pretty (a sitting room and conservatory which looked out onto the garden). My room was great – big bathroom, comfortable bed, plenty of space, and a decent selection of... More
