My mum and I were really looking forward to our stay here in August. Most of the Tripadvisor reviews were very good and the location is beautiful. The lady who greeted us when we arrived was really lovely. she showed us to our two rooms at the very top of the house. The rooms were lovely and clean and simply... More

Very clean, comfortable and quiet. We stayed in one of the 2 attic rooms which although had low ceiling height in places was very... More

After spending a straight 39 hrs at hospital we called on the 12th from the hospital and left messages on land line & mobile to inform that we would not... More

We stayed last week with our two children (ages 6 and 18 months) and had a wonderful trip. The B&B is superb, perfect for any family and we would highly recommend it. It's a cracking location to walk from or enjoy the local pubs all walkable! Would love to return!

Nice room with lovely view of the gardens, however if you are tall you may find it a little cramped in the attic room with the sloping ceilings in the bedroom and bathroom. I hit my head a few times and I'm not tall. Great facilities, though, friendly, helpful staff and a good breakfast, cooked freshly and lots of choice.

We really enjoyed our stay here, and the location is perfect if you want to do some walking in the Brecons. It was a great place to relax after a tough day of walking - there is a very large and well-kept garden to wander around (with beehives!), a patio to chill-out on, and - an interesting bonus - a...

We returned to The Malt House after 2 years, and we were so pleased to find it was still a comfy and welcoming place. Despite the very long drive and arriving late, the owner made us feel welcome and very relaxed from the moment we got there. Children are very welcome and treated with respect. It’s a lovely huge house,... More

Went last night and stayed in the pool house which was lovely, peaceful and warm. The beds were super cosy too and had a great night sleep with the gentle sound of the stream next to the house. Even though we only stayed a night felt very welcomed and had a great breakfast, with lots if choice

Mike the owner is proper gent letting people share his awesome property. Great setting in talybont. We were able to picnic in the gardens by the river use the outdoor pool and explore the gardens. The breakfasts are spot on with everything on offer you could want. Loads of help for things to do

Me and my girlfriend stayed in the pool house, which was very reasonably priced. Our favourite surprise was the chickens and bees kept at the back of the garden. Mike was brilliant and helpful as was all the other people we came across, the room was great, very clean and a very comfortable bed. A pool at the foot of... More
