We stayed one night with Anne and John in their amazing house and will definitely return. The eclectic mix of furniture adds to the great character and history of this amazing house - and its owners. Lovely welcome, great conversation in front of a roaring fire, wonderful breakfast. Highly recommended.

Stayed two nights in the very ideosyncratic B&B that Annie and John have created in Wales' oldest house. They provided magnificent hospitality, good conversation, a fully-equipped comfortable bedroom, an eclectically-furnished lounge, and magnificent breakfasts with cockles. Strongly recommended!

Just back from a memorable stay at this extraordinary house, rich in history and charm with owners offering a warmth and welcome second to none. Dinner was a delight of an incredible five beautifully presented courses prepared by Annie and served with humour and grace (!) by John. Breakfast was equally satisfying with enormous choices. A truly unforgettable time, one...

Second year for me to stay at this wonderfully quirky place. Annie and John welcomed us into their home and made us feel at home. The house is like stepping back in time but with some modern comforts. Well worth navigating the track up through the fields

This was my second stay in this fantastic b&b and I feel privileged to have experienced it. Annie and John really make you feel like guests in their home, which you actually are when you stay here. Their home is in a stunning location and has been maintained and furnished with a passion that is evident as soon as you...

Annie and John are gorgeous hosts. I felt very lucky and spoilt to have been able to spend a few nights here. I slept in both rooms and both are fabulous. Incredible faery house aside the gardens surrounding the house are my idea of perfection. This place is beautiful, comfortable, informal and a real life adventure. I fell in love.

Magical, bewitching, enchanting…what is the right word to describe this incredible house and the warm, funny couple who own it? This is a very special place to visit, and the sense of occasion begins with the drive up a rutted farm track and into a medieval courtyard, which was strung with Christmas lights when we arrived. Stepping into the house,...

This is not an ordinary B&B and so much the better for it. The house is in a fantastic position in one of the most beautiful parts of the country. You cross a couple of fields (on decent tracks) to get there, so trust your satnav. It is very ancient but has all the amenities you might expect or hope...

Situated off the beaten track with access via a rough track through 2 fields, at Hafod y Garreg you experience what it says on the tin. Welcoming hosts, a warm and comfortable old cottage in an isolated position. The dinners that Annie produced were excellent, served with humour by John who also produced an excellent breakfast each morning. The rooms...

Annie M, Owner at Hafod-Y-Garreg, responded to this review

You imply that you literally have to drive across fields, whereas in fact it is partly tarmac and partly compressed stone bridleway, passing through two fields, just to add, we have a sports car live here and therefore use it all the time. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and were comfortable.\we also enjoyed your company.
