No better place for a country weekend away doing nothing much amid glorious surroundings. 

The Felin Fach Griffin

Felin Fach Brecon Powys LD3 0UB 01874 620 111

We say

'The simple things in life done well' is the motto of this rather special inn – and we reckon it's perfectly suited to this gastropub with rooms, situated on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park in the Welsh Borders. It lives up to its billing in every way possible. There are seven very comfortable rooms above a restaurant that is one of the best in the region. It's also a proper pub, with all that that implies, serving well-priced, well-kept local ales, with comfy seats for local drinkers and a roaring fire in winter. And dogs, and children, are very definitely welcomed. 

Rooms are all different in size and style, but all all have big comfortable beds, Roberts Radios, homemade biscuits and fresh flowers, posh toiletries, and plenty of reading matter for when all you want to do is slob about. Breakfasts are sumptuous and delicious, and a good indicator of the quality of the dinner you'll enjoy once you're back from a hard day's walking, book-browsing in Hay or just pottering around nearby Brecon, Abergavenny or Crickhowell. No better place then for a Welsh country weekend away – and if you like the style, it's good to know that the owners use the same motto for the other hotels they run in Cornwall, the Gurnard's Head near Zennor and Old Coastguard in Mousehole.
