Porthmawr is a hidden gem in the heart of Crickhowell. We recently held our wedding there for 90 guests and from start to finish Geoff, his daughter Beth and their amazing team were nothing but welcoming, friendly, efficient and brilliant at what they do. They were more than accommodating to all of our needs and were professional at all times... More

We just held our wedding at Porthmawr and it was utterly amazing. Andrew and I had the most amazing weekend we couldn't have asked for more from Geoff and the team. Anything and everything we needed they sorted out for us and the food was absolutely phenomenal! All of our guests raved about it, from the canapés to the evening... More

This was a celebration for our son's 30 th birthday with a large group of friends and family. All the accommodation was taken for the 27 in the party. The house was amazing with beautiful grounds and the main lounge and dining rooms were very elegant but also comfortable, warm and welcoming. The kitchen was exceptionally well equipped making it...

We have just returned from a fantastic weekend at Porthmawr Country House. We hired the whole house including the adjoining Cottage and Apartments. Geoff was a great host and put on a brilliant formal sit-down meal on the Saturday night with excellent local Welsh lamb. The house felt incredibly warm and welcoming with large well equipped rooms. A perfect weekend... More

Friends Jen & Alex got married in November 2014. They were able to book the whole country house for the weekend for guests to stop over. The staff were fantastic especially with the two ladies with young babies. The seating area was quite small & a bit cramped in places but we made the most of it. The meal was... More

The views and location is lovely. Great for photographs. The owner was very rude and unprofessional. There are lots of uneven surfaces and unsafe steps. The accommodation areas are not the best and some beds are very uncomfortable.

We hosted our Daughter's wedding here (Toni to Paul) on April 12th weekend. It was Idyllic and perfect. We hired the whole house, function room and apartments for 4 days. Pre wedding we visited the house several times, and Geoff (the owner) was available to answer many questions and was a fountain of knowledge about the house's history and also... More

We stayed here over New Year. As there were 28 of us we rented the entire premises including the apartment and gatehouse. While the house itself was large and very pretty on closer inspection you realise that it is all a bit tired. As a self catered house there was a distinct lack of standard equipment within the house i.e.... More

This is a much over due review (as our wedding was in September) but we had the weekend of our lives at Porthmawr Country House!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Porthmawr is a splendid Regency mansion. Tucked away behind 15th century castellated walls the house and grounds are utterly private and peaceful with stunning mountain views, and ample parking. Plush furnishings, antiques and quirky modern artwork sit side by side in its tall-ceilinged rooms. Relax and enjoy a glass of wine on the terrace on a summers eve or infront of the open fire on a cold winter's night. ... more   less
