5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2009

We had a lovely welcome from Paul. The rooms and en-suite were beautiful and everything looked brand new throughout whole property. The decor was sympatheically mached and added to the ambience, making a very comfortable and welcoming place to stay.The breakfast was lovely.

Just spent three days in the lovely Oakfield B&B right in Blaenavon, tracking down my Welsh ancestors. My large room was spotless, beautifully furnished with a big, brand new ensuite bathroom and had views across the valley. Host Paul could not have been kinder, providing me with all sorts of information on how to go about exploring the local area and finding my roots. There's private parking to the rear of the property. The Big Pit is a great experience, especially for the kids, and it was fascinating for me to see the kind of lives my ancestors lived, down the mines. Lots of choice at breakfast, which was made to order. I recommend it wholeheartedly.
The gentlemen at the Heritage Museum in Blaenavon kindly provided all sorts of historical information, and the Blaenavon Library next to the museum is also very well resourced and the staff are very helpful. Browning Books in Broad Street is worth a visit, not only for its local interest and Welsh authors collection, but also for its exhibition of local artists' work.
