We stayed at Blaencar for 7 nights. We had the luxury suite and the B&B option. What a good decision that has been. Carol made us most welcome on our arrival and was most helpful during our stay. Long walks was what we came for and Blaencar is the place to start from. Carol had provided us with maps and walking guides from the Brecon Beacons. After a great cooked breakfast ( with fresh fruit, cereals etc) every day we started our walks. We did a few starting from the B&B and the rest after a short drive (30 min. max) to our starting point. When we got back we had a cold beer on our terrace. The bathroom is ok. The electric power shower (Not seen in Holland) is fine after you find the right settings.
Because we were in the suite we had a fully equipped kitchen (big fridge for the beer, oven, microwave, dish-washer) at our disposal. Brecon is only 30 mins away with a few super markets so we made our own packed lunches .
We had a few great diners at “The Lion Inn” in Defynnog (About 2 km from the B&B), a few in Brecon (Italian , Chinese etc) and the best in the “Shoemaker Arms” (A40 Sennybridge, head for Pentrebach). Well worth driving the extra mile. In week-ends it is advised to make reservations in both pubs.
After we got back from diner we could sit outside or in our living room with 2 couches (Not to comfortable) a table with 4 chairs and a big tv.
After a long day outside, a good meal, a good night’s rest is what you want. And it is what we got. The four poster bed is very comfortable and the b&b is very quiet.
Carol , thank you very much and we will be back.
