    Karen and Bernie were wonderfully welcoming and hospitable. Not only did Karen cook the most heavenly dinner for us the day we arrived, she also put out a birthday card and candles for my husband when she found out it was his birthday. Talk about...

Both of us retired in 2007 and came up to Wales from Sussex, we fell in love with this part of Wales when we were Scout leaders and we brought the Scouts up here for the walking and various activities. There is so much to do up here from walking, cycling, rafting caving and lots more. We started the B&B in 2010 and enjoy the meeting of new people. When guests stay they always comment on how peaceful the area is and the scenery is fabulous. We offer packed lunches and evening meals for walkers & Cyclists, but they have to be requested 12hrs before hand, the nearest pub is 4 miles away but if you are walkers we don't mind taking you there and picking you up.
