Welsh Retreat

Escape city life for the rolling green hills of Wales at Llangoed Hall…

Posted: 24.06.17

Experience quintessential Welsh country living whilst staying at Llangoed Hall in Brecon, Wales. Nestled amidst seventeen acres of serene gardens and parkland, stands magnificently this 16th century country manor house, overlooking unparalleled views of greenery all around. Previously owned by late designer Laura Ashley, the hotel possesses all characteristics of country house splendour and regality – from the classical and rich décor and fascinating antiquities found all over the hotel. An art-lover’s haven, the hotel even boasts Sir Bernard Ashley’s fine art collection on display for visitors to exclusively savour in their own time, including pieces by the American-born artist and society wit, James McNeil Whistler and works by Herman Dudley Murphy and Augustus John

What also makes Llangoed Hall such a hidden gem, is the absolute peace and tranquility one enjoys whilst staying at this hotel, which makes for a welcome retreat and refreshing break from the hustle and bustle of city living. Thanks to this serenity and secluded location, The International Dark-Sky Association (IDA) recognised the Brecon Beacons National Park in Wales as the world's fifth International Dark Sky Reserve (IDSR), so guests can bask at a starry night sky, creating a magical and romantic memory. If you’re visiting in the winter months, snuggle up with a blanket on a sofa in front of the fireplace, whilst playing a board game or two on hand.

The fresh air and stunning views are only a part of the feast for the senses, as dining at Llangoed Hall is the real treat. Locally sourced and produced organic ingredients are used in the kitchens, including three egg houses and vegetable gardens on site, where produce is lovingly home grown and cultivated. Whilst breakfast goes down a treat, dinner includes an impressive menu of at least five courses, each more delicious than the last. There’s no wonder why Llangoed Hall has appeared in The Good Food Guide as well as making it to the guide’s Top 50 restaurants in the UK.

Beyond Llangoed Hall’s picturesque meadows, you can take a lovely stroll at the nearby River Wye, just behind the grounds. A short drive from Llangoed Hall, you can’t miss the imposing façade of the Black Mountains. Plan various outdoor activities in the beautiful The Brecon Beacons and Wye Valley surroundings, whilst exploring the nearby ‘town of books’ Hay-On-Wye.

A night at Llangoed Hall is priced from £150.00 B&B based on two sharing
