Good Hotel Guide Review

In a market town home to an August Jazz Festival and October Baroque Music Festival, Kayt and Hugh Cooper run their former 19th-century coaching inn as a smart and welcoming, fully licensed B&B. The Baroque Festival was online in 2020 (so no live Bach, bach), and trusted readers were disappointed not to be able to enjoy their annual trip to enjoy ‘the best accommodation in town’. Bedrooms are contemporary in style and painted in restful hues. Most have a walk-in shower, and all are supplied with posh toiletries and fresh milk on request. A mini-suite has a lounge area, coffee machine, small fridge, and a bathroom with a roll-top bath and walk-in shower. If you have special dietary requirements, your hosts will go out of their way to cater for you. An extensive breakfast menu includes Welsh rarebit, omelettes, a full Welsh or vegetarian, and the house speciality: free-range eggs, smoked salmon and laver bread. You can sit in the secluded garden with a drink and order a picnic to take with you when you set out to roam the Brecon Beacons national park. (J and MB)

Comments about The Coach House

Our sixth visit. Everything as good as before. Welcome with bags carried. Tea with very good barra brith. Delicious late supper. Breakfast still extensive. Background harp music but not intrusive. Comfortable room. - Jill & Mike Bennett - October 2019
