Had a lovely couple of nights here - possible the best breakfast ever - superb local produce for the full English (or should that be Welsh), and excellent service. Room was charming and very comfortable. Sitting room with lots of books, cd's and wood burner for colder days - intend to return.

The views are great if you are as lucky as we were and get clear sunny weather. You'll need your own transport to stay in Llanfilo. Note that this...

The Draen walks a really nice line of welcoming hospitality and privacy. Our room had a private living room with it. The owner was very helpful with local recommendations. We bought wine and sat out in the garden listening to the sheep and birds. Really lovely and a nice change from a town centre hotel/bnb. When it got chilly the...

Just had a wonderful 3 days at the Draen. Sue and Johnny are the perfect hosts. The room (we were very lucky to have the Rose Suite) was beautifully presented and sparkling clean and fresh. The breakfast was delicious the smell of a cooked breakfast draws you to the dining table each morning. The surroundings are picturesque and it's lovely...

Lovely old building with big garden in a quiet but accessible location surrounded by farmland and near to the Beacons and Pen y Fan. Rooms well appointed and very clean. Great breakfast made by Johnny, with individual tables for each room. A...

A very friendly, comfortable farmhouse B&B in a beautiful situation. The owners are welcoming and helpful and it is the only such place we have stayed where times and content of breakfast is not organised the evening before. And what great breakfasts we had. Comfortable, well appointed bedrooms, en-suite, and a big sitting room, although we spent our time in...

We couldn't have wished for a better location to meet as old friends for a quiet few days. Excellent accomodation , obliging hosts for which nothing was too much trouble. Utter peace and quiet where one can unwind and relax and enjoy the tranquil countryside.

Excellent bed and breakfast in a great location for the Brecon Beacons. We stayed two nights and had no trouble relaxing in such a wonderful location. Breakfast was delicious and conversation with Sue and Johnny was most excellent. Upon arrival, we were greeted with tea and biscuits. Does it get any better than that? Get yourselves here!

Excellent bed and breakfast. Room was clean and very comfortable. Sue and Johnny are very welcoming and the breakfasts are amazing. It was really nice to return to from a long walk to a nice cuppa in front of the wood burning stove.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Draen (Welsh for Thorn Tree) is a wonderful old Welsh farm house that, in parts, dates back some 400 years. Nestling at the end of a very quiet country lane, surrounded by fields with fabulous views to the Black Mountains. A perfect spot for exploring, walking, cycling or simply just enjoying the peace and quiet. Plenty of wildlife to see in surrounding area including badgers. Look out for the Red Kite & the Buzzard flying high.We have 2 double rooms, both en-suite, with their own separate front doors and staircase. There is 1 twin room with a new modern en-suite and a family room which sleeps 3. Each of the bedrooms has its own separate dining room for breakfast. The rooms are well appointed with quality beds, TV, hair dryer, alarm clock and tea and coffee making facilities. Iron and ironing board available upon request. WIFI. There is a conservatory and garden available for residents use.We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to The Draen. ... more   less
