What a gem - Mid Wales is beautiful, and to have found this fabulous B&B makes staying for more than just the scenery possible.
The Maesmawr is an art gallery as well as a really special place to stay - and when I say gallery I mean a gallery proper with a high standard of real art - not just a building with pictures! Its a lovely old building - fascinating in itself, but with grounds that you are free to explore with a big garden full of sculptures.
Importantly, rooms are immaculately clean, the beds comfortable and the breakfast is perfect. Cathy - the host - is kind, warm and hospitable without being in your face! I can't recommend it highly enough and I truly cannot understand the negative review? It is as if they stayed at a different place. There is a Maesmawr Hotel up the road - perhaps they got confused??
