We spent 3 nights here to go walking in the Brecon Beacons. We received a very warm welcome from Cathy and were instantly made to feel welcome. The separate accommodation is cosy and comfortable. The cooked breakfast is delightful and delivered hot to your door; with the bacon, sausages and eggs all being locally sourced. Cathy is a great hostess... More

The location of the studio is amazing with spectacular views and scenery. Cathie was a delightful host, offering us lots of helpful advise about the local area, and we had a delicious breakfast in the morning. Easily one of the best B&Bs we have stayed in.

The Studio is the ideal spot for exploring the Brecon Beacons. It's also the perfect accommodation for people like us who don't enjoy sharing a breakfast table! Having somewhere to sit comfortably in the evening and plenty of space for all our gear is a real plus too. We were made to feel very welcome and feel that the facilities... More

The Studio B&B was a wonderfully located guest cottage situated right in the middle of all of the starting points for the major walks in the Brecon Beacons. Having a car would have been a lot more convenient for us, as we were constantly having to call a cab if we wanted to go into one of the adjacent towns... More

From the very first email with Cathie I knew I made the right decision. Beautifully situated for outings in Brecon Beacons and mid Wales and very quiet. Cathie takes care of the small details that make a B&B memorable. Toiletries, cake on our return from an outing, lovely breakfasts, a bird book and binoculars, loads of info on the area,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Escape to a lovely, rural location with your own private mini cottage - a B & B that is much more than just a bed. Halfway between Abergavenny and Brecon, The Studio is set down a quiet country lane with views of the Black Mountains from every window. Completely separate from the main house, you have your own four walls and a pretty garden with table and chairs and a BBQ. The main room is light and spacious, with a double and single bed, as well as a large comfortable sofa, Flat screen TV, DVD and CD player. A small fridge is also provided to pop your picnic in or so you can enjoy a glass of wine in the evening and there is a pub serving food just five minutes' walk away. The en suite facilities include a full length bath to soak away aching muscles after a good day out, as well as a power shower. We bring you a hearty cooked breakfast in your own room with the emphasis on quality ingredients locally sourced. If you want to sleep in late we can supply you with cereal, locally baked bread and home-made jam and leave you to it! ... more   less
