Highly commended: Town House at Brecon

town house

What the owners say:

A grade II listed, Georgian style, five-storey building in the old town has been developed into a 5-star Gold, three-bedroom B&B. “Each room is individual and in keeping with the buildings heritage and location/views, but we’ve tried our hardest to make it homely and enveloping. Our pride and joy is the breakfast room and guest lounge which we believe is the best we could do with the resources and planning guidelines and we’ve yet to see better in a B&B. “I don’t believe there is a Town House in the UK that has maximised its resources better than we have, and we also believe we have the best breakfast room/guest lounge in any UK B&B.” We have tried wherever possible to make our B&B as unique and original as possible bearing in mind the heritage from where the building originates and its Grade II listing. Whether you are after an adventurous break hill-walking the beacons and surrounding areas, water canoeing, pony trekking or simply seeking a quiet weekend regenerating, The Town House at Brecon is ideally situated.

What the judges say:

• You’ve done a great job!
• Luxury bed, fabulous furnishings and a breakfast to die for!
