The Farmhouse

Exclusive B&B during the Hay Festival. The ultimate in elegance and comfort. A favourite of the literary world.

Direct walking access to the Brecon Beacons National Park right from your doorstep. Twenty-minute drive to the Hay Festival site.

The Farmhouse is an 18th century mountain heaven recently renovated to the highest standards with respect for its original features and local craftmanship techniques. The result is a series of gorgeous reception and bed rooms, decorated with original lime-washed colours, oak beams, multi-secular flagstones or wooden floors, fire places, and exquisite (soft) furnishing.
