Julian & Alison were superb hosts. The bed and linen were first class, in fact everything was excellent. Wonderful local knowledge and you were spoilt for choice of outstanding walks. Really enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider returning here.

This is a superior B&B. The rooms are beautifully appointed and everything that you could possibly want is here. The views across Crickhowell are exceptional. Alison and Julian are wonderful hosts and are have extensive knowledge of the area. Just a short stroll to some wonderful pubs/restaurants. Oh, and the breakfast is sensational!

What a find! We have just spent four nights at Glan y Dwr, where Julian and Alison made us most welcome. The house is beautiful and our room, Skirrid, which had been made up with a king-sized bed, was extremely comfortable and spacious. The quality of the breakfast was exceptional and it was nice to see so many local ingredients...
