Rectory Cottage
Ranked #1 of 1 Mamhilad B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 18, 2009

Despite being conveniently close to 'civilisation' (and indeed the M4) Rectory Cottage's tranquil setting, nestling at the foot of the Brecon Beacons feels a world away. Clean, comfortably rooms and breakfasts which are a cut above the usual B&B fare enhance its appeal, as does a genuinely warm welcome.

There are several excellent pubs nearby that provide food in the evenings and the location provides a great base for the Brecon Beacons and mountain biking at Cwm Carn.

To top it off Rectory Cottage is excellent value for money. For a small rural B&B it's hard to think of anything more you could ask.

Stayed: February 2009, traveled with friends

We stayed one night at this 16th century old bnb, in the Vale of Usk, and wished we could have stay longer! It was perfect in every way.

Our hosts were lovely - happy to chat or leave us alone. We stayed in the twin bedroom, which was spotlessly clean and delightfully furnished. We fell asleep listening to the owls hooting. A full breakfast was on offer and it was fresh and hot.
The cottage is very close to numerous tourist attractions such as Brecon Beacons, Blaenavon, Caerphilly and Tintern Abbey to name just a few. We went for a walk along the canal - about 100 yards away and enjoyed the scenery, but next time we will base ourselves at the cottage as there is so much to do.
The downsides? Well it is off the main road, but the map they provide on their website (---) was sufficient. There is only two eating establishments within walking distance - but how many does one need? And they own a lovely dog - but not everyone is a dog lover.
