Everything was amazing......the house, the bedrooms, the breakfast and the yummy homemade cakes with a cup of tea, even the weather! The service could not be faulted and so friendly. Local information available if at a loss of what to do. Crickhowell has fabulous eateries and many scenic walks thank you so much for a lovely time, see you soon

Fabulous hosts, immaculate rooms & domestic accommodation with a breakfast to die for. Perfect location for town and also for the many local walks into the Brecon Beacons. Nothing was too much to ask for. Highly recommended for anybody staying in the area.

Thank you for your very kind words. We enjoyed having your group to stay for the weekend, it gave a house party feel, and made a lovely happy atmosphere. I think you also enjoyed the Walking festival events , so Crickhowell benefited from your visit too! Please come again, you'll be very welcome! More

Work takes me to Crickhowell once or twice a year and for the last three or four years I've stayed at Allison and Julian's wonderful B&B. When you travel around as much as I do you appreciate the high quality of the rooms, service and food on offer here. Quite simply the best B&B I visit (anywhere in the UK).... More

Every fall we spend at least a week somewhere in England in B&B's. Three nights with Allison & Julian were enough to put Glan y Dwr easily in our "Top Ten" ever. The combination of very friendly and knowledgeable hosts with a beautiful house and very comfortable/spacious room(Pen y Fan which we chose because of larger bath) was perfect. I... More

We received a cancellation from the B&B we initially planned to stay at, which at first was slightly annoying but oh, we couldn't have been luckier as otherwise we would have never stayed at this amazing B&B in the lovely town of Crickhowell.
