A very welcoming little B+B away from almost any other civilisation in the heart of a picturesque valley. We were the only guests and it was off season, but George opened the pub just for us, fired up the wood burner, cooked us a great meal and served up several fine beers. And then did it again the next night! The rooms were basic but clean and comfortable, with a sink, kettle, tea and coffee and everything you need. The communal showers and toilets were also clean and worked fine.
Basically, a great (and great value) place to rest up and feed up after a day exploring and enjoying the peaceful surrounding countryside. Thanks George, would happily return.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Half Moon Hotel is set in a peaceful and secluded spot in the beautiful Black Mountains, part of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Next door to Llanthony Priory. The friendly 17th-century pub is an ideal base for walkers (we are not far from the Offas Dyke Path and on the beacons way path). We are also well situated to explore the Norman border castles, old churches and chapels of the Welsh borders. The small town of Abergavenny is 10 miles away. Hay-on-Wye 13 miles, Hereford 25 miles and Cardiff 40 miles. The Half Moon serves good food, real ales & tea & coffee, child friendly pub. We also have a beer garden for your use and dogs are welcome. Pony trekking is available close by and caters for all ages and abilities. The Half Moon is situated in an area designated as a dark sky at night location and is therefore ideal for stargazers and photographers. Our accommodation is basic due to the age of the building, but a warm welcome and good food and ale is offered to all our visitors. The Half Moon is currently undergoing a major refurbishment and therefore there is some disruption to normal service however we are working extremely hard to keep the disturbance to our guests to a minimum.
