All I can really add here is the word ‘Magic’. A beautiful setting, lovely hosts, Annies cooking, and an amazing historical house. A real delight. Close to Hay-on-Wye and the Brecon Beacons, its a great location too for outdoor activities and culture. John is a raconteur after my own heart, some on here say ‘grumpy’..I say characterful!! Fabulous.

What lovely people and a lovely setting in an amazing house. John is a real character - so grumpy 😉. Annie is a wonderful cook and the evening meal we had was delicious and perfectly cooked. Don’t go expecting an immaculately clean, light, airy room - it’s an echo of a medieval home (with modern upgrades!) You must read the history of the building & listen to the story of the years that John & Annie have spent there. We loved it.

We had an absolutely amazing 3 nights at Hafod y Garreg. The house is fascinating and beautifully decorated ( the photos on here don't do it justice). John is a wonderful and entertaining host who makes you feel instantly at home. Annie's food is truly the best we've eaten for a long time - we booked dinner there every evening and were very glad that we did. We'll definitely be going back at the first opportunity and have already recommended Hafod y Garreg to friends and family.

Had a great stay with John and Annie. They were so welcoming and kind almost felt like we knew them. Loved their home with all its quirky details. The house is old but with all mod cons. Had romantic, candle lit dinner and huge breakfast. Lovely spot even in rainy November. Definitely one to return to.

The best treatment, food and surroundings. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here hosted by John and Annie. They have a brilliant, unique and quirky listed house that we loved, as did Scooby, our very contented lurcher. One to cherish and return to.
