We are delighted to invite you to our elegant Georgian manor house, situated ideally in the heart of the Brecon Beacons. Explore some of the best walking country in the United Kingdom, relax in idyllic surroundings or simply curl up with a good book in front of one of our open log fires.
Our Brecon Beacons retreat is a family owned Georgian manor and cottages set in a secluded valley deep in the heart of the Brecon Beacons national park.
There’s the Breacon Beacon national park to visit, which is an amazingly diverse landscape to explore from mountains and moorlands to the flat pastoral land and steeply wooded river valleys. It’s a perfect area for walking and mountain Biking, pony trekking, fishing and canoeing.
Brecon is the nearest market town steeped in history, and Hay-On-Wye is about 15 miles away and well worth a visit. Famous for it’s second hand bookshops and antique shops, it’s a lovely place to wander around.
