We are a family run guest house in the historic market town of Brecon, half a mile from the town centre on the main road from Cardiff. The house is an old farmhouse which dates back to the 1800's and still has original beams in some of the rooms. All our rooms are en-suite and have LCD TV's, radio, tea and coffee making facilities. We also have a comfortable residents lounge with original features, such as beams and fireplace. There is free Wi-Fi available in all the bedrooms.. We have a spacious breakfast room with a good choice of full Welsh breakfast or vegetarian option, served in the dining room between 08:00 and 09:00 daily. We have our own private car park for up to 12 cars and a lock up garage for anyone with push bikes.

"We stayed in the attic room - if you're very tall it may be difficult to stand up straight in some parts of the room due to the beams"
"There is one room available on the ground floor with those with mobility difficulties."
"Advantage of a ground floor room if anyone has walking problems"
"We had the family room with a double and 2 single beds. We could hear someone moving around above us most of the night."
"Artic room lovely"
