Why we've chosen Alltybrain Farm Cottages and B&B:

Allt-y-Brain comes from the Welsh, meaning hillside of the Ravens or “Crows Wood”. Today the top of Alltybrain hillside is managed by the Forestry Commission and leads on to common land that forms a high ridge all the way from Brecon to Builth Wells offering keen walking and riding visitors spectacular views for miles and miles. Around Alltybrain Farmhouse the countryside was covered with indigenous woods right up until the early 1900s when the land was turned to pasture and is today farmed with beef cattle, sheep and welsh ponies.

Alltybrain Farm was a working farm until 1992. Now we have a small holding with pedigree black welsh mountain sheep, ducks, chickens, guinea fowl and miniature shetland ponies. We have two holiday cottages suitable for two people each offering 5 Star Self-Catering Accommodation. We can also offer quality Farmhouse B&B accommodation that is being graded this year by the Visit Wales Grading Scheme for Bed and Breakfast accommodation.

Parts of the stone Holiday Cottages and Farmhouse are over 300 years old and the original character of the barns and farmhouse have been kept with old flagged stone floors and with great thick walls still very much in evidence. Fairly recently we installed modern central heating systems and the large wood burning stoves make sure that a warm welcome and comfortable stay is offered to self-catering guests in the cottages and B&B guests staying in the Farmhouse. We hope that you will enjoy looking at our web-site and will find accommodation with us suitable for your holiday in the Brecon Beacons.

Review by David Atkinson

"Horse lovers will be bowled over by this place but the wider sense of rural charm and open-house ambiance appeals to walkers and families alike. For a couples’ big-city escape, Damson is the place to cuddle up and watch the sunset."
