That's a lovely review, thank you for your kind comments. The pleasure of having a B & B is meeting people, especially positive ones! I'm glad you were happy to chat at breakfast and enjoyed the food. You'll be very welcome again if work or leisure brings you back to this area - there's plenty more to explore.

There are surrounding places to visit and we would strongly recommend hanging around Crickhowell for an evening. Great people (visit The Bear) and willing to...

Elegance & comfort are the keynotes of a stay at Glan y Dwr. My room was large, extremely comfortable & well stocked with a good choice of teas & coffees, and the bathroom adjoining was equally generous in size.

What a find! We have just spent four nights at Glan y Dwr, where Julian and Alison made us most welcome. The house is beautiful and our room, Skirrid, which had been made up with a king-sized bed, was extremely comfortable and spacious.
