Reasons for trip


This idylllic cottage is set in 3 acres with views to Mount Carnigli nestled in the Pressilly Hills near the aura of Ffald-y-Brenin. It is only 3 miles from Ffald-y-Brenin and approximately 6 miles from Newport town center.

The hostess Mary is delightful and a real treat to meet.

Her hospitality includes cooked breakfast in the price of the room £30.00. There is a separate double bedroom with it's own parlor, a wood burnng cast iron fire with a door off the parlour giving access to the gardens.

The lovely garden and patio are surrounded by mature trees and a stream.

Mary also offers 1 room with 2 single beds and 1 room with a single bed.

I recommend Pen-y-Bont as a 5 Star accommodation, not only because of the location in an area of natural beauty , but also because of the thoughtful care and kindness of the hostess Mary who has made it a truely delightful place to stay.
