This place is amazing ! We just got back from here as a family group of 13 celebrating a 60th birthday. It is like staying in a National Trust home ! Beautiful decor and atmosphere. Highly recommended and would love to visit again ♡♡ Thankyou for sharing your beautiful home with us.
We were a large party of friends wanting a quiet weekend to relax and explore the Brecon Beacons.Jo was really welcoming and had great local knowledge and useful recommendations. We arrived to a delicious home-made cake! Abernant House was really spacious and comfortable and plenty big enough for 10 of us. The gardens are absolutely stunning and we would all thoroughly recommend this property.
Its difficult to know where to start with Abernant as the house has so many amazing features to talk about.
We were looking for the perfect party house and weekend retreat for a 3 generation 40th birthday party and Abernant seemed to it the bill perfectly.
Firstly, the booking process was absolutely seamless and Jo answered every single question and pre-empted a few more before they had even been asked, providing loads of advice and information about the house and the activities available.
On arrival, we were met at the house by Jo, a lovely lemon cake, 2 dozen double yoke eggs and lovely bunch of flowers and even a card for the birthday girl.
after a quick 20 minute tour of the whole house along wth an explanation of the history of all the rooms, we were left alone to enjoy all that the house had to offer.
Each of the living areas is fantastic in its own way, from the wooden panelled tv snug to the fantastic kitchen with a huge AGA and the massive oak table, the library with a fascinating and eclectic mix of books, the dining room with its hand painted Chinese wallpaper to the nicest room, the drawing room with its open fireplace, comfortable sofas and the grand piano.
The artefacts and antiques from the owners Grandfather, Lord Caccia, were enough to keep the history buffs happy for hours on end, not to mention the huge collection of sheet music for the piano.
Sadly, the weather wasn't great, but the kids still spent most of the Saturday in the huge garden, playing under the tree and on the rope swing.
The bedrooms were all nicely furnished and proportioned with the beds being really comfortable, with a good mix of rooms to allow young kids to stay with their parents or to be independent if they wanted.
Some of the rooms were stunning with balconies and amazing views over the surrounding countryside
A couple of the rooms had ensuite bathrooms and there were at least another 2 bathrooms , to be honest, I lost count.
There were only 2 showers though, but to be honest this didn't seem to be an issue either and certainly no one complained about it.
All in all, one of the nicest weekends we've ever had as a large family group and would love to return again; thanks Jo, for making us all so welcome!
Highly recommend a stay in Abernent, Jo was so helpful and flexible to last minute changes! The house is warm and friendly and you instantly feel at home, all the rooms are comfortable and spacious, we even managed to do some Scottish reeling in kitchen! You definitely want to bring a piano player you, as they have the most gorgeous piano! Thank you again for our wonderful stay.
Stayed at Abernant House for a week at half term with my family, daughters, son-in-laws and grandchildren. The house and grounds are lovely and everyone hade a wonderful time.
We stayed in Abernant House for 3 nights, 3-6th Oct, for my son's small wedding celebration (only 12 people).
What I want to say is just - WOW!
Such a fantastic place, secluded beauty, amazingly cosy house, full of history and charms. We felt privileged to have a chance to live there for the short time.
The weather was sunny and warm. The garden was perfect and it made our time in Abernant truly exceptional!
Special thank you to Jo. She was such a wonderful host and made us feel so welcome and paid attention to everything from all the little details to tastefully decorating the rooms .
Shaun was our chef. He was terrific!
Thank you very much.
It was unforgettable experience!
Absolutely fantastic property, the lovely lady that showed my husband round was very helpful. The AGA was a joy to cook with, with so much room for us all to enjoy a great time together. Plenty of room in the garden to play games/have a BBQ/investigate the surrounding countryside down by the river.
The bedrooms were beautiful & spacious with plenty of bathrooms/showers. The only downside was that only 1 shower worked properly but didn't affect our stay & would definately stay again.
Thank you very much & also for the lovely cake on arrival - a great touch.
