A lovely house in a great location and also very quiet, with beautiful views of the surrounding hills from the top floor. You wake up to the sound of chirping birds and you can see bunny rabbits, red grouse, sheep and cats in the field at the back! The house is very clean and tidy; delicious and filling breakfasts, free...

The "Lady" of the house (Jean) could not have done any more for us. We were upgraded to the larger room at no extra cost, the breakfasts were absolutely superb and we were given excellent and accurate advise on where to visit. It is in easy walking distance to the centre of Crickhowell where there is a good choice of...

I would return here again without hesitation. The room and en suite were spotlessly clean. The bed was comfy and the surroundings were very friendly, relaxed and quiet. This is all I would expect from a B&B and more. Very cheap compared to other options locally too!

Jean is very welcoming and accommodating. Ease of parking, place to put muddy boots and she'll hang your wet gear up to dry! A short walk to the village (Dragon recommended for food and great atmosphere), excellent breakfast, and great view of Llangattock escarpment from the main bedroom! You will need to ask if you need a hairdryer, though, as...

Stayed here for one night on the 20th of February 2016 and the host couldn't do enough for us. So welcoming and thoughtful, would definitely stay here again. The breakfast was delicious and could have stayed all day in bed, it was so comfortable. Right in the heart of Crickhowell, the price was very reasonable. Highly recommend!!

Crickhowell is a beautiful village in the Brecon Beacons with great pubs, food, shops and walks. This B&B is close to the center of the village and is welcoming, friendly, comfortable and with a hearty breakfast. I would highly recommend it.

The host really welcomed us though we were over the time we have expected. The warm welcoming made us feel like home. The room was very comfortable and tidy. Also the view (landscape) from the room is great! We slept very well. Next morning, the Welsh breakfast she cooked was very big and she gave useful information called 'Big Pit'...

“I stayed in room 1, with the double bed, and for a single person this was perfect. It might be a bit small for two people, in which case room 2 might be a better fit.”

“We were in the smaller room - which was adequate, but the bigger of the two rooms would have been better.”

“One room is rather larger than the other, so do specify if you need the space.”

“The room with the view to Table Mountain is the smaller room towards the road above the breakfast room, if you enjoy a more valley'ish view or need a bigger room the other one next to it will be another great option.”
