The
Experience

You could imagine you were in a French château: the roofs are slated, the walls a patchwork of old stone, plants and bushes. Swing open the door, cross the flagged courtyard and ascend the stair to the wing; you feel private here yet remain part of this hugely happy house. The courtyard wing doesn’t try to be spectacular, just cosy and human, well-decorated and generous. There’s a small but comfortable sitting room with a wood-burner (help yourself to logs), it’s a place for children to escape the adults in the kitchen, or vice-versa. The kitchen is big – a sociably large table, modern kitchen units, an old dresser, bold-checked curtains – and the sight and sound of the rushing river fills the room. Bedrooms are simple, rustic, with a familial mix of old furniture, stand-alone basins and plain carpets. You won’t ever run out of things to do here – there are 40 acres to roam and the river is a real draw; take a canoe if you can, spend all day teasing the waters, build a rope bridge… You feel miles from anywhere but Brecon is just four miles. Very special.

Reviews

I've been to Penpont regularly for many years now ... it's such a special place in every way. The accommodation is top class...open fire, everything you could possibly need in the kitchen..warm, comfortable and stylish with wonderful views. The river running through the grounds means if it's good weather you can have a swim and the surrounding countryside wild and beautiful. Above all the owners are very welcoming, friendly and helpful. A perfect holiday and retreat

Sasha, Cambridge

Penpont is an incredible place. We have returned here year after year and the welcome is always friendly and personal. Vina and Gavin find the perfect balance between leaving you to enjoy your holiday and finding the time for a long-overdue chat. The grounds are spectacular and we're always disappointed when it's time to go home.

Location

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Davina & Gavin Hogg

  • A mile long stretch of fly-fishing starting in the garden. The Usk is famous for its wild spring trout, and this beat is one of the most sought after in the country. Fly only, catch and release, day tickets available from the house. Bring your own gear.
  • Penpont, a Grade I listed house, and sits amongst a historic range of listed buildings, the archetypal home farm. The Stables was converted 10 years ago and has a large rooms available for meetings, conferences, retreats, weddings and parties.
  • Just three miles from Brecon Beacons National Park Mountain Centre - walk from the house and disappear into the high country, we can guide you with maps and make suggestions to suit your needs. You can access the entire National Park from Penpont.
  • We are passionate about the environment, we heat all the buildings with a large Biomass boiler with wood sourced from the estate woods. We have created an educational tree trail to guide you around the gardens and the trees of interest, veterans and new.
  • We grow organic veg and fruit within the walled gardens, we open a small farm shop selling our produce from June to December, as well as delivering to local restaurants. Contact us if you would like a box of veg on your arrival, or to take home with you.
  • Pony trekking, kayaking, Mountain biking are all within easy reach. Explore the delights of Hay on Wye, the market town of Brecon, further afield is the Gower for surf, and the Elan Valley for pure wilderness. There are still places to escape to
