Good Hotel Guide Review

Drawn back for a sixth visit to the annual Baroque Music Festival in this market and minster town, trusted readers found everything ‘as good as before’ at Kayt and Hugh Cooper’s eco-aware B&B. ‘Hugh helped to unload our luggage before bringing tea and some very good bara brith (fruit loaf).’ Behind the facade of a 19th-century coaching inn, the house is contemporary and smart. Bedrooms, painted in muted, natural shades, have a coffee machine, fresh milk in a minibar fridge, and Cole & Lewis toiletries. Brychan mini-suite has a sofa, a bath and separate walk-in shower. Even the smallest ‘classic’ rooms are not poky. ‘We were grateful to have such a comfortable room to return to during two days 
of torrential rain.’ A variety of restaurants and pubs are a stroll away. Breakfast brings a wide choice, served to the unobtrusive strains of harp music, and includes Glamorgan vegetarian sausages, pikelets, local free-range eggs, laver bread, and porridge with Welsh honey. Guests 
can order a packed lunch before setting out to explore the Brecon Beacons national park. (Jill and Mike Bennett)

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
