Wake to circling red kites with a breathtaking backdrop of the Black Mountain. Every room has wonderful views, and Sue and Nick are warm and delightful hosts. Food is a passion here and you’ll enjoy homemade bread and jams, deep yellow eggs, organic veg and local lamb and pork; vegetarians are spoiled too – Sue is a brilliant cook. After dinner there’s snooker, a log fire, a cosy sofa; then a seriously comfy bed in a room with a lovely country-house feel. There are excellent walks in the valley, fly fishing on the Towy, Llyn y Fan Fach in Brecon Beacons National Park; Aberglasney and the Botanic Gardens are nearby too.
