Sluttery Travels: Hafod y Garreg, Brecon Beacons

Hafod y Garreg is officially the oldest house in Wales. It's in the Brecon Beacons, just 8 miles from Hay-on-Wye (hi, book lovers) and over looks the stunning Wye valley. And not only is it old, it's really very beautiful too. Inside and out.

Doesn't it look peaceful?

The house has an old style charm about it. It's not grand by any means, but it's still a classy place to stay. The bedrooms are decked out in antique fabrics, but there's also free wifi and a flatscreen TV as well. A modern touch for such an old building.

It's looks so pretty, but my favourite room might be the bathroom.

I'm a suck for freestanding baths and black and white tiling. Throw in some exposed beams and I'm sold. This is basically my dream bathroom.

I was expecting Hafod y Garreg to be totally out of my price range, but it's very reasonable. There are only two double bedrooms and they're £78 per night. Dinner is a three course meal at £23.50 and you're asked to bring your own wine. Breakfast is a 'huge affair' and they have hens running about outside to provide the eggs.

There's no mention of the prices rising during the Hay festival, but I imagine with those prices and that view, they get booked up quickly. And you're also going to have to race me for a booking.


  1. It looks gorgeous! Check out Llanthony Priory too - also in the Brecon Beacons and about 30 mins from Hay - a beautiful drive. It's a 12th century priory with only four rooms. (I don't work for them by the way!)

  2. We're hoping to get to Hay this year - we might to have to see if any of these gorgeous places has any room to some Sluttery girls to stay!

  3. That monk figure in the corner would freak me out a bit. Might have to stick a coat over him or something! :D
