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

Only stayed for one night, which was a shame, as Talybont-On-Usk is beautiful. The Malt House itself was also Excellent. Very clean and well kept, as are the grounds. didn't get to use the pool as we didn't have time, but will be staying here again so will next time. The host was very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was very... More

Four of us stayed at the Malt House whilst we competed in the Race the Sun event in Brecon. We all stayed in the pool room (the 4 bed cabin by the pool - the clue's in the name!) and it was great. Comfy bed, good shower and opens out onto the pool and garden. Perfect for us. The owner... More

Fantastic gardens. Beautiful river running the length of the garden. We slept as a four in the bunk house at the end of the pool. (Yes a pool as well). Lovely breakfast as well. Oh and very good value. Spent a very happy evening listening to the river running past just a few yards from my head.

A beautiful, unpretentious house with kind hosts who serve a fabulous breakfast. Talybont on Usk is delightful and perfectly positioned not far from Brecon. The swimming pool at the end of the garden is an incredible bonus.
