“Behold the Welsh mountain pony. Breathe in. You’re in the shadow of the Black Mountains. Breathe out. You’re staying at the Brecon Beacons’ only 4-star hotel.”

A long private drive takes you through a stunning collection of over 100 specimen trees. First impressions count at Gliffaes. This late 19th-century Italianate building, a former clergyman’s house, stands in 33-acre grounds above the fish-laden River Usk – five salmon and trout beats feature along the river. Catch a trout in season and you can have it served up for breakfast. Delicious!

Locally sourced, seasonal produce is on the menu in this peaceful part of the world. Eighty wines and champagnes are stocked in the Victorian cellar – 8 to 10 available by the glass. A Welsh afternoon tea can be enjoyed on the broad stone terrace, or you can kick off your shoes and put up your feet by the roaring log fire. Perfect!

From the comfort of your river-view room – complete with plush Toile de Jouy fabrics and bold Lewis & Wood wallpaper – smell the wisteria on the balcony, admire the original artwork by contemporary Welsh artists, or soap up with natural spring water in your en suite bathroom. We’ve been told the views are pretty special, too.

Grab your boots and take to the upland trails. Welcome to one of Britain’s breathing spaces. Welcome to Gliffaes Country House Hotel.
