Have a greener holiday at The Grange, Brecon, Powys:

This grade II listed 19th century house is only a windlass’ throw from the canal in the attractive market town of Brecon with its castle and river. Eight guest bedrooms have Welsh names, after features of the landscape, such as Wysg (aka Usk). Some rooms share a bathroom and toilet and all look out onto urban scenes: slate-roofed houses lining the opposite side of the street or a car park with a small hill behind.

Comfortable beds have a throw of a Welsh wool blanket. Furniture is pine or reproduction Regency. En-suite shower-rooms have been carved out of a corner of some bedrooms. Downstairs, the dining room has eight tables surrounded by Welsh colours of red, white and green. There’s no living room but there is a small back garden with tables and chairs that you can use until 9pm.

Cooked breakfast comes with either meaty or vegetarian Welsh sausages. ‘Glamorgan sausages’ – from a supermarket - are made of Caerphilly cheese, leek and potato. For a packed lunch, owners David and Amelia (or one of their three staff) will rustle you up a Welsh ham sandwich or you could head to the indoor market and buy local cheeses and fresh fruit. The Grange doesn’t do evening meals but The Clarence next door serves pub grub including veggie options such as chickpea and sweet potato curry for about £7.
