Hendy Gwyn

Welcome to Hendy Gwyn (The Old White House) - a delightful 300 year old cottage where Lizzie and Graham provide Bed and Breakfast for two or three guests.

We are situated between the stunning Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains and a short walk away from the renowned Llangors Lake - the largest natural lake in South Wales complete with its unique Crannog. We are also opposite an excellent pub - The Castle Inn - which is known for its delicious pub food and superb Sunday lunches (booking advised).

Hendy Gwyn offers one main bedroom with king size bed and an adjacent private shower room. There is a pretty dressing table and a cricket table and chairs provide a comfortable place to sit to enjoy a coffee or one of the selection of teas and goodies. The (very) small single bedroom is only used as an add-on for the main bedroom. Egyptian cotton bedding, towels and toiletries are provided.

Downstairs is the cosy, oak-beamed Breakfast Room with its inglenook fireplace. This room may be used by guests of an evening and is stocked with a selection of board games, books and maps. The adjacent Garden Room houses a television with Sky and an eclectic choice of DVDs! This room opens on to a paved area with table and chairs where guests may be lucky enough to have the weather to take their breakfast outside.

Hendy Gwyn was originally two dwellings, one of which apparently housed the local Blacksmith. This was named Hen d’yr Gof at that time which does mean ‘The Old Smith’s House’ but the name was changed some thirty years ago to the present Hendy Gwyn. When the two became one has been lost in the mists of time but you can see where one of the front doors was by looking at the bookcase in the Breakfast Room. The other is in our own sitting room.

The garden is our pride and joy and we hope that our guests make use of the various seating areas to enjoy it too.

Nearby pubs and eating places include The Castle Inn (Llangors), The Three Horseshoes (Groesffordd) and The Griffin (Felin Fach).
