“A great new find”
Reviewed 15 February 2009

We had never visited this part of Wales before and came across this place completely by accident. We were pleasantly surprised. Shirley was a very welcoming and helpful hostess and made us feel right at home. A comfortable room, delicious breakfast and fantastic location for walking and exploring Mid Wales. There is so much going on in this 'smallest town' in Britain, through the year, we will definitely be back.

What a great weekend at the Plasnewydd B&B. We were here for the Real Ale Wobble in November. We have been coming for the last 7 years to the Plasnewydd so its long due to compliment Shirley on her great hospitality.
From arrival, we get shown to our rooms, we leave our orders for breakfast - always a good full English with juice and toast etc ready to tackle the days biking.
We arrive back and put the bikes away, a hot shower or bath, then relax in the lounge with a cup of tea and biscuits.
The Plasnewydd is only a minute walk from the town, so we go in for food and beers.
Shirley goes out of her way to make sure we have the perfect weekend in Plasnewydd and we always do.

I and several friends have stayed at Plasnewydd on numerous occasions whilst indulging in sports and cultural weekends in Llanwrtyd. The accommodation is very comfortable, good value, the location is spot on and Mrs Allen is very friendly and helpful and certainly makes us feel extremely welcome. The breakfasts are great. Overall excellent rating from all of us hence our repeat business extending back some 10 years.

Loved the friendlyness and warmth of the B&B, the room was excellent and beaurifully decorated, bathroom facilities with shower was excellent, plenty hot water. Breakfast was first class, choices was numerous and freshly cooked. Loved our chatty host, Shirley was very welcoming. As I am a keen gardener myself her garden was beautiful, gave me some tips for mine, pity I did not see it when in full bloom.

The village itself was very friendly and met some of the locals.

The only thing I missed was not having a TV in the room as an early riser I liked to watch early morning news. But overall it was perfect.

Many thanks for a lovely stay.

My husband first stayed at Plasnewydd Bed & Breakfast in March whilst on a cycling weekend with his friends. All five of them had a wonderful time and came back raving about the cycling, the scenary and Shirley's B&B. On this basis we returned in July to be very warmly welcomed by Shirley and Norman, which was wonderful as we 'd had a long drive and arrived quite late in the evening. Our room was extremley comfortable and clean and the breakfast laid on by Shirley was fantastic. Shirley has managed the near impossible for a B&B, which is that you really do feel at home - especially when enjoying the cosy guest lounge while watching a film from their DVD library. Nothing is too much trouble. Shirley has lots of useful tips and pointers about where to go and what to see locally, which is lovely and adds that extra personal touch to your stay, This really is a beautiful part of the country and one that all should experience. Get your hiking boots, bikes, bog snorkel and pony ride bookings sorted and go and experience the great outdoors!

Llanwrtyd Wells, Powys! This is one of the most beautiful places to stay and visit in Wales. Clean Fresh Air, Incredible scenery & Mountains, Natural Sulphur Wells and wonderfully friendly people. This place has the title for being the smallest town in Britain too. I had stayed here as a child many years ago and was not disappointed at all when I recently returned years later with my own Son.

We stayed in a B & B called “Plasnewydd” and the owners Norman & Shirley provided us with fantastic accommodation and wonderful home cooking including home made Welsh Cakes and Bara Brith which were heavenly. They were so very friendly and made us feel completely welcome. They also both had a vast knowledge about the area. Staying there was so relaxing and peaceful. One of the best nights sleep I have had in ages.

We had a wonderful time trekking on horses up on the mountains. Our guides and horses were from Ffos Farm Trekking Stables which is only 5 minutes walk from centre of the Village of Llanwrtyd Wells. What an incredible experience for my son and I, just the two of us and two guides taking us. You can’t experience it any other way.

The local pubs were also very welcoming and friendly. They all had great atmosphere, were child friendly and served great food. You have just got to give this place a try!

I had one of the best holidays to be had at this b&b. Shirley Allen the owner made me right at home from the start. Nothing was to much trouble for her, all you had to do was ask .All i can say is thanks and I will see you next year.
