We have just one guest bedroom, which is part of a luxurious ground floor suite!
Apart from the double bedroom with its own private bathroom, you will also have exclusive use of the guest dining and sitting room, where you can curl up by the log-burning stove if the evenings are chilly.
There is free wireless broadband throughout these rooms. The accommodation is also ideal for guests with limited mobility.
The Guest Bedroom
The oak-beamed bedroom, with original stone pillars, enjoys wonderful views of Red Darren – one the of the eastern-most escarpments of the Brecon Beacons National Park.
Indeed you can lie in bed and watch the sun rise onto the crags!
The bedroom is light, spacious, and beautifully furnished with antiques from my French family. So you will sleep in an authentic 19th century “marriage bed” which belonged to my great grandmother, with its scenes of Breton life exquisitely hand-carved by local craftsmen.
The double bedroom opens into an oak-floored private bathroom, with walk-in shower, bath, washbasin and wc.
The Sitting Room and Dining Room
This half-timbered room with its solid oak floor also looks out towards the Black Mountains. Here you can relax by the log-burning stove after a long walk, or simply read and snooze if the weather is less than tempting. We do promise to wake you when it’s time for dinner!
The Music Room
Also on the ground floor is the Music Room where breakfast is served.
Watching over you at the breakfast table is my great great great grandfather, Guillaume de Turckheim, of the 7th Hussars of Napoleon’s Grande Armée. Guillaume was Aide de Camp to General Rapp, fought in Poland, Prussia and Spain, and only survived the catastrophic retreat from Moscow because he was captured by the Russians and imprisoned in Kiev! But he does have a tendency to complain about the English weather!
