I love it when a plan comes together... we booked Beli Neuadd as a last minute whim for a romantic getaway to Rhayder and the Elan Valley.
Everywhere was booked up and then I stumbled onto the Beli Neuadd simple web pages in a google search for "Rhayder Farm B&B". There were no internal photographs and precious little is written on this place in the internet domain but I went with my hunch .....and we found everything that we were hoping for and so very much more.
David Parker and his family have just taken over the Farm in the last 3 months and are executing B&B to the very highest of standards. The farm stands remotely in 5 acres, with nothing to spoil the views in any direction just 2 miles outside of Rhayder. The guest rooms are newly refurnbished. We had a lovely double room, whitewashed and comfortably decorated with crisp white linens and delicious feather duvets and pillows. The large bathroom was right next door for our sole use was pristine (I'm a stickler for these things). Unusually but most welcome, we had a mini fridge stocked with water jug and fresh milk (no UHT milk here!), tea/coffee facilities and 2 scrumptious slices of homemade sponge cake waiting for our arrival.
It's a traditional farmhouse complete with uneven creaky floorboards, 2 dogs and 3 cats (quite docile and disinterested in the guests!). It all adds to the character of the place as does the book on knitted tea-cosies in the living room! I
Highight of the stay is without doubt the breakfast. The quality would rival any 5* country hotel and will live in the memory for a while yet to come. We sat in the conservatory, over looking the wonderful gardens. The sausages and bacon are produced from the Pork hand reared on the farm, the black pudding moist and bursting with flavour, all expertly assembled by the lady of the house into a quite delicious spread with home made preserves; fresh strawberries and a pot of steaming coffee. Everything about that breakfast just shouts volumes that will have to be sampled to be believed.
If I were selfish I wouldn't pass on any of this information, to guarantee my future stays - oh yes I will go back - will always be un-busy and with spaces available. However the Beli Neuadd B&B really does deserve the highest of accolades and praise and is a treat to be shared.
