“Beautifully idillic and practical bunkhouse.”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

At first I thought that the term 'Bunkhouse' gave this place a disservice but after a bit of thought, i'd say that it actually suites it down to the ground. You have to visit to know what I mean.

I arrived here with a group of friends who were cycling around Wales to raise money for charity. The weather was stunning and the peaceful silence was deafening. I instantly fell in love with this place.

I'd have happily slept on a straw bed outside just to be surrounded by such beautiful gardens and countryside but luckily there was no need because the accommodation was perfect for us as a group.

Clean rooms and linen. Good showers and toilets. Lovely kitchen area and communal dining space. This place is perfect for groups of friends looking to get away and explore the stunning surroundings. The breakfast provided was incredible and certainly set us on our way for day 2 of a hefty challenge.

I would certainly come back with friends, family or just with my wife (although i'd probably stay in the main house!)

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. I hope I have the pleasure of staying there again someday soon.

Nestled in the Welsh hills, a couple of miles from Rhayader, this is a truly lovely guest house complete with beautiful gardens, large pond, ducks, sheep, pigs, chickens and probably other animals we didn't encounter. The 16th century house is full character and our bedroom's slightly sloping wooden floor and bijou en-suite only added to the charm. The high quality breakfast was also excellent and I sincerely recommend Beili Neuadd as the perfect base for exploring the reservoirs and landscapes of Mid Wales.

My husband and I stayed for just 3 nights and were made to feel very welcome. Our little dog was also welcomed and made to feel at home with the resident dogs. The breakfast was first class as were the two evening meals. Alison provided homemade cake or biscuits daily which were delicious. We appreciated having a fridge in the room in which there was a bottle of milk (so much better than the tiny amounts of milk you are usually supplied with) and a bottle of ice cold spring water. The house is situated in a glorious setting with a large garden and is so peaceful. Highly recommended. One of the best places we have stayed in. We hope to go back.

My partner and I stayed in the farmhouse 17th to 20th June. Had we known it was so lovely we would have arranged our itinerary so as to stay longer. The house and gardens are beautiful and the owners, Alison and David, are welcoming, friendly, helpful and relaxed. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the food is marvellous, well-cooked and beautifully presented. We loved every moment of our stay here and we really did not want to leave, it certainly made our holiday in Wales very enjoyable and unforgettable. There's a wonderful relaxing atmosphere here which we have not experienced elsewhere. It is ideally placed for the Elan Valley and its beautiful lakes and breathtaking scenery. We can recommend Beili Neuadd without any hesitation and we will certainly be returning in the future.

As a group of six riding the Trans-Cambrian Way, we stayed in the bunkhouse. We were made to feel very welcome by Alison and the facilities are spot-on for muddy mountain bikers. Hose pipe, washing machine, drying room, good showers. An excellent cooked breakfast was brought to us, bang on cue, to set us up for the day. Thoroughly recommended, thanks Alison!

Eleven of us cyclists stayed in the Bunkhouse at Beili Neuadd last weekend and it was just perfect. The setting is superb, and the accommodation was everything that we needed - clean, comfortable and with every amenity. Alison was very welcoming and cooked a lovely meal for those of us who decided to stay in Friday evening - and provided a generous packed lunch for our cycle trip Sunday. Highly recommended - the perfect base for touring in the area.

We stayed in the farmhouse overnight last weekend. We felt welcomed and able to relax very quickly. Alison was friendly, approachable and helpful. The room was comfortable and well furnished with some very tasty home made cake waiting to be eaten.

The property is beautiful and the location worthy of exploration. We had freedom to walk the grounds surrounding the farmhouse and it was such a treat to find lovely wild borders, expanses of lawn, a pond , a brook, hens roaming around, owls in the tree, pigs in a pen and sheep in surrounding fields.

Our evening meal and breakfast was home cooked food served in the sitting room with a view of the grounds. The quality of the food was excellent, home cooked by Alison who clearly knows what she is doing in the kitchen!

It's hard to find anything to criticise the break for, even the creaky, uneven wooden floors upstairs in the older part of the building felt right given its age.

Congratulations Alison and thank you for creating such a lovely holiday experience
