“Fabulous B&B”
Reviewed September 23, 2012 via mobile

I stayed here for a night whilst on a 3 day trail riding holiday - our horses stayed in one of the fields on the farm..
What a fantastic b&b! We were given a very warm welcome from Gwen and Idris with tea and homemade cake. The room was beautifully appointed with everything I could possibly need and more - the shower was particularly splendid! Breakfast was another highlight - fresh fruit salad and wonderful high quality bacon, eggs, mushrooms etc, as well as homemade jams for the toast. We had a vegetarian and a dairy and gluten intolerant guest in our group, and both of these were easily catered for with no problem at all.
It's nice to see the farm animals around (rabbits, cats and several squirming piglets!), and location is good, as we were able to walk just a short distance down the road to the skirrid inn for dinner.
Thank you so much for a wonderful stay - I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this b&b to anyone visiting the area.

We stayed two nights with Gwen and Idris at the start of our Beacons Way walk. Wonderful welcome was provided along with a slice of home made cake fand real milk for our tea! A short walk to the Skirrid Inn for our evening meal. The second day, the start of our walk started wet and grey but we were sent off with a hot cooked breakfast, bacon and sausage done to perfection even thought there was a whole gang of people staying that night. Our welcome back at the end of day helped to let us forget the wet and very windy day we had faced and of course, another slice of a homemade dessert did not hurt either. It felt like you were coming home to a favourite aunt and uncle, Gwen and Idris took great care of us.

We recently stayed here as we were attending a wedding in the area. The service was fantastic right from the time of making our reservation. The couple who own it could not do enough for us and made us feel very welcome. The breakfast was fantastic, all home cooked and plenty of it! I would certainly recommend Pen y dre

We stayed at Pen-y-Dre for a Sunday night in March 2012, en route from London to Bluestone park in Wales. We are a family of four, with two young daughters (and a dog) and we had a really nice and comfortable stay. Idris and Gwen, the proprietors, made us feel really welcome. We stayed in the attic room, which is about 600 square feet large (with an en suite), with enough space for a double bed and two single beds. The part of the house that we stayed in was built in the 16th Century and whilst the room itself was comfortable and modern, the route to the room had some 16th Century charm, especially the stairs to the attic. The attic room was well appointed, and equipped to good three star Hotel suite standard, with a fridge (complete with complimentary sponge cake) and microwave. The petting farm out the back is great for kids. Our children loved it and we spent about 1.5hours at it over the course of our half day stay! The highlight of the stay, though, was the breakfast. It was lovely and homely, with bacon, sausages, eggs, mushrooms and roasted tomatoes, as well as healthy options like cereals and fruit salad. Idris had a good chat with us over breakfast and he's a lovely man. Gwen also made us feel super comfortable. If you have kids, are in the area, aren't super demanding and appreciate the real things in life, this place is for you!

This was my third year on the Long Distance Walkers "Wet and windy winter weekend in Wales"
I cannot imagine anywhere better to retreat to after a long day in the hills. It feels just like home and the breakfasts are out of this world. I could have managed till dinner on the breakfast alone but with their excellent and reasonable packed lunch there was no need. Followed by a few bevvies and meal in the Skirrid Mountain Inn it made the perfect day.

Room Tip: depends on your needs, cottage good for family, main house for couples but rooms can accommadate

I spent 3 nights at Pen-Y-Dre for a long weekend with my boyfriend to do some hill walking and mountain biking in the Brecon Beacons - the B&B was a perfect bolt-hole for this! Each day started with a fantastic full English - including fresh fruit, cereal, toast and yoghurt - which kept us going til dinner, and we stayed in a warm, spotlessly clean and comfortable room, with lots of space for relaxing. Abergavenny is a short drive and has plenty of pubs/restaurants for dinner and there's the oldest pub in Wales 2 minutes walk away from the farmhouse. I would definitely recommend the B&B to anyone wanting a cosy and friendly place to stay. The cake on arrival was particularly good!!
