FELIN GLAIS 5 STAR B&B
BED AND BREAKFAST IN BRECON, POWYS
Felin Glais (mill by the steep sided stream) is a 1650 (circa) Barn and Beast House which lay in ruins for many years. It was sold by auction in 1977 for the princely sum of £6100. The new owners demolished all but one wall and took 10 years to rebuild it using the original stone and oak beams from a stable block of a local Manor House. We purchased the house in 1997 after falling in love with the setting which overlooks the Brecon Beacon mountains and the magnificent Beast House which is presently the lounge and dining room. We have added a conservatory which during the warmer months is used as a breakfast room and a new wing which consists of two bedrooms with en suite facilities.
Guests are welcome to wander around the garden, and friendly dogs are most welcome. Local equestrian is happy to take small parties including children for riding tuition or pony trekking.
In the New Wing there are 2 double ensuite rooms: a superking-size bedded room with a spa bath. power shower, bidet, twin wash hand basins and a WC, and another superking-size bedded room which has power shower, wash hand basin and a WC. For stays of 2 days or more the bed in this room can be converted to 2 twin beds. In the Original Section there is a four poster Kingsize bed with an ensuite hydracentre shower plus a twin room with a spa bathroom en suite. There is a fridge adjacent to all rooms. Milk, cordial, various teas, coffee, drinking chocolate and mineral water are supplied.
Internet facilities are accessible for a small charge and we have wireless broadband throughout the house. Garage space is available to store bicycles. Hairdryers and hot brushes are available in all rooms. The ground floor has a kitchen which should be completed during the next 12 months and will eventually be the breakfast room. There is a guest WC downstairs and a laundry room. A small charge is levied for serviced washing and drying of laundry. Ironing facilities are available for guests to use. A travel cot is available.
