Annie and John are gorgeous hosts. I felt very lucky and spoilt to have been able to spend a few nights here. I slept in both rooms and both are fabulous. Incredible faery house aside the gardens surrounding the house are my idea of perfection.
This place is beautiful, comfortable, informal and a real life adventure. I fell in love.

Magical, bewitching, enchanting…what is the right word to describe this incredible house and the warm, funny couple who own it? This is a very special place to visit, and the sense of occasion begins with the drive up a rutted farm track and into a medieval courtyard, which was strung with Christmas lights when we arrived. Stepping into the house, you find yourself in the main room - or hall - of an obviously ancient dwelling, with a fire glowing in open stove, and on our visit, more tasteful Christmas decorations. The house is beautifully furnished, in a way that feels appropriate for its age, with some clever and witty touches here and there adding interest. Our bedroom was warm, and the bed exquisitely comfortable - even for one suffering with a bad back - while the bathroom had more than a touch of luxury about it.

Annie and John were the perfect hosts, sharing their fascinating stories about the house and how they came to own it, over a cup of tea, and later, a glass of wine in front of the fire. They made us feel thoroughly welcome, and that welcome even extended to our cat - Ethel - who always comes away with us.

Having thought it couldn’t get much better, we sat down to dinner at 7.30, expecting, perhaps, a rustic shepherd’s pie and maybe an apple crumble if we were lucky. Instead, John ushered us into an intimate and softly lit dining room, where he returned soon after with an amuse-bouche of what I might call Bloody Mary soup - a gloriously spiced tomato. There followed a delicious starter and then the incredible main course, which was so elaborate and skilfully presented that it belonged in a Michelin starred restaurant. A lovely palate cleanser preceded the perfect dessert, and then we sat back over coffee and tea and reflected that we had eaten better at this B and B than at 95% of the restaurants we visit during the year.

We only stayed for one night, as we were moving on deeper into Wales the next day, and one night was simply not enough. Having said that, the experience was so striking and so enjoyable that the stay felt as relaxing and invigorating as a long weekend. In fact, this would be the perfect place to escape for a precious weekend to shed the worries of a busy working life.

This is not an ordinary B&B and so much the better for it. The house is in a fantastic position in one of the most beautiful parts of the country. You cross a couple of fields (on decent tracks) to get there, so trust your satnav. It is very ancient but has all the amenities you might expect or hope for. Lovely antique furniture, big bedroom, big bathroom, fantastic breakfast etc. If you stay for dinner expect excellent food in your own private panelled dining room (both Annie and John are very interested in food and cooking). You can sit and chat with Annie and John by the fire who are delightful and interesting or retire to your room.
Some people will be familiar with old houses and will love it but I can imagine if you are from abroad staying would be a fantastic experience.

Situated off the beaten track with access via a rough track through 2 fields, at Hafod y Garreg you experience what it says on the tin. Welcoming hosts, a warm and comfortable old cottage in an isolated position. The dinners that Annie produced were excellent, served with humour by John who also produced an excellent breakfast each morning. The rooms were very comfortable with all facilities and they welcomed our dogs in the cottage. A log fire greeted us each evening as we relaxed before dinner. Well worth a visit

You imply that you literally have to drive across fields, whereas in fact it is partly tarmac and partly compressed stone bridleway, passing through two fields, just to add, we have a sports car live here and therefore use it all the time.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay and were comfortable.\we also enjoyed your company.

Want to get away from it all this is definately the place to go..I booked this birthday getaway for my partner Adrians birthday and boy was I suprised. the overwelming views was breathtaking..Annie was a wealth of knolwedge on where to go and what to see,sitting down to one of her evening meals is an occasion that would make the best of chefs trimble with delight ...but the ultimate experience is the quick whit of john who not only is on point with his breakfast dishes can keep pace with the most quick witted trill seekers. Annie and John offers the highlight in midevil decor ....this little b&b is an ablsolut joy to experience.Thank you Annie and John for making our stay so special..
