We really enjoyed our one night stay here while cycling from Wales to South Yorkshire. We enjoyed tea and cakes on our arrival . The room and bed was very comfortable lots of lovely extras. Susan is very friendly and her breakfast was one of the best we have had and we do stay in B&B a lot. Susan recommended the nearest pub, and we had a a very good meal there too.
This was a wonderful stay Thank you Susan, if we are in the area again we will see you again

Found this B&B on the Offa's Dyke accommodation list. Susan was really friendly and after showing us our room offered us tea and cakes in the lounge. She chatted to us and gave us advice about where to eat in Kington. The room was clean and had all the usual tea/coffee making facilities + a jar of biscuits. Although we had a TV in our room we also had use of the lounge if we wished. Attention to detail - bottled water , cotton buds , soaps etc in the room. Susan also gave us the number of a local taxi company ( if we were at risk of missing our train connection at Knighton ). The breakfast was the best we have had for a long time - porridge , a big bowl of fresh fruit ( strawberries, blueberries, kiwi fruit etc) , Greek yogurt , full English breakfast, toast ,big pot of coffee - brilliant !
We also had a bath and a shower in our twin en-suite.

Welcomed by Susan who had the newspapers already crumpled for my wet walking boots. Had a lovely pot of tea and cake plus a nice chat. My twin room with en suite was first class. Loved the jar of shortbread to go with my coffee later on. I had lovely porridge and a great continental breakfast with yummy breads and rolls. Of the 25 places I've stayed on my walking trip this is in the top 2.

We stayed at De Lacy House two nights whilst walking Offa's Dyke (we could not get accommodation in Hay on Wye due to the festival). On arrival Susan gave us tea and home made cake, which was delicious and extremely welcome. Our room was immaculate and she recommended a local pub (a 5 minute walk away) for a meal. The meal in the pub was excellent, we returned to our room for a fantastic nights sleep. Comfy beds, tea / coffee / bottled water in the rooms / lovely dressing gowns.
Breakfast was one of the best I had ever had, lots of fresh fruit, yoghurt, toast. Susan's porridge is to die for you have to try it!
A wonderful stay and a wonderful host. Thank you Susan!

We booked this B & B for 2 nights as we wanted to walk part of of Offa's Dyke way. We had a lovely stay, wonderful landlady Sue who knew the places to eat and drink; very friendly town. It was a "special" birthday and the landlady, gathering from the cards in the room, had a nice bottle of wine and a birthday card for me - it's the little things that make the difference. Wonderful breakfasts including porridge (cooked the proper way not in the microwave) and home-made jams. Rooms nice and clean. The twin-bedded room at the front was ensuite and had a nice shower and a lovely big bath. There was a comfortable lounge with fireplace to sit and read and we were able to park on the road right in front of the house with no problem. A short 5 minute walk to get to the pubs and shops.I would recommend The Lion for a special night out, good food, friendly service and reasonable prices.

My wife and I stayed overnight at De Lacy house, and had not read the reviews prior to doing so. Having now read some of the reviews, we are both amazed to see that some visitors had chosen to only give four stars, the accommodation and the host are of the very best. Our room was lovely, the bathroom, ours to use only, was spacous and beautifully clean. The breakfast was superb, and whilst we were chatting to Susan, we found her to be a mine of information about the area.I was recommended this accommodation by two walkers who I passed walking North along the path and for that recommendation I am truly thankful. The house was so lovely.

Room Tip: Our room was lovely, I assume the rest were also.

We stayed at this b&b in May when we were visiting a local festival. The friendly landlady, Sue, was gracious about our (very) late arrival and still found time to settle us in with a drink and cake, despite the fact that she was going out. We had chosen a twin bedded room with separate bathroom. I believe that the thick, fluffy towels were changed daily. Everything was very clean and there were homemade biscuits in the comfortable bedroom - there was a lovely collection of cushions/throws/patchwork quilts arranged around the house. Breakfast consisted of delicious fresh fruit salad, yoghourts and a tasty cooked breakfast, cooked on demand to iindividual specification. Sue couldn't have been more helpful and informative about the local area and best driving routes etc. We would definitely stay there again.
