When you go for a trip into the countryside and pick a small b&b to stay at, Gwyn Deri is exactly the kind of place you're hoping that b&b will be when you pull up at the door.
I've just read through the other reviews which (almost!) unanimously tell you exactly the same things I am going to tell you. I had a little chuckle at the single negative review from the three years you can read here, where the only complaint seemed to be that the reviewer was 'kept talking' for an hour on arrival. Whereas I and the other 67 positive reviews agree that the exceptional welcome is part of the marvelous service. Kathy and Brian are the kind of people who clearly put love, passion and a whole lot of work into making their guest's stay in their home a memorable and unique one. On arrival we were indeed 'kept talking' (after being shown our room) for over an hour, however this was no imposition, but a warm and pleasant chat with the owners and other guests whilst sitting in the pretty garden and being provided with tea and delicious home baked welsh cakes and brownies. An absolute pleasure.
The room was beautifully clean, the bed comfortable, fresh fruit and homemade biscuits provided in room. Breakfast is a feast, with plenty of local produce. Just what you need to set you up for exploring the area, where there are plentiful opportunities for walking. Crickhowell is a pretty small town with some good pubs to drink and eat in.
