Hafod-Y-Garreg is recognised as the oldest dwelling in Wales. A grade II* listed medieval farmhouse that was first built as a hunting lodge for King Henry IV. The House dates back to the 1402.

In one bedroom there is a massive ornate medieval cruckframe. The inglenook fireplace, a more recent addition, added about 1550, dominates the living room. Early oak furniture, luxurious fabrics, flagstones and oak floors are a glorious mix. The house is hidden in a hollow surrounded by hills and larch forests and overlooks the Wye Valley.

The atmospheric bedrooms have antique fabrics, beautiful bed linen and stylish bathrooms. Spoil yourself and have dinner in the beamed candlelit dining room at the 16th century refectory table. Breakfast is a huge affair with free range eggs from hens that lay blue and green eggs.

The farmhouse and barn are approached by a long bumpy lane and is equidistant from three market towns: Hay-on-Wye 8 miles, Brecon 9 miles, Builth Wells 10 miles.
