We came up to the Elan Valley to celebrate my birthday and found the Horseshoe last minute. I have to say that it was the perfect choice. A warm, comfortable and friendly accommodation in this beautiful part of the world. I would thoroughly recommend The Horseshoe Guesthouse to anyone contemplating a stay in the Elan Valley.

Comfortable, welcoming, excellent value in a quiet location. Room spotless and generously proportioned. Private off road parking. Breakfast superb choice, quality and portions. The experience was enhanced by Dilys's charm. Paul couldn't have been more attentive and helpful. Would definitely choose to stay here again when in the area.
