Why we've chosen The Granary:
The Granary is a newly converted barn situated at the foot of the Black Mountains in the Brecon Beacons National Park. Conveniently placed midway between Hay-on-Wye and Brecon, it is ideal for the Hay Literary Festival, Brecon Jazz, the Royal Welsh Agricultural Show and many other local events.
The Granary has been tastefully converted and offers two luxury double rooms and one twin room, all of which are en-suite. Joyce and Ray Shaw moved to The Granary in 2007. Since then they have been awarded a 5 star grading from Visit Wales and won the Gold Award for guest comfort and hospitality for the last 4 years. Seeking to minimise the impact of The Granary on the environment, they have participated in the Green Business Tourism Scheme and have been awarded a silver grading for reducing their carbon footprint and encouraging their guests to do the same.
“We want our guests to feel at home during their stay. Many return again and again and have become great friends over the years. We are ideally based for walkers & cyclists as we have several walks from our own doorstep. We offer hearty breakfasts, picnics and drying facilities.”
