Wye House made the perfect getaway. We loved that we were staying in a converted stable and each room has a modern at the same time rustic design. There were glasses, corkscrew, kettle, herbal teabags and hooks above the radiator. We loved the baths and the rainwater shower with lots of space as well as fluffy towels and bodywash. The lounges in the bedrooms give lots of space to relax in your room or practice yoga, read, or watching TV. It seemed like I was in a home away from home and I definitely returned feeling very relaxed.

Stayed at Wye House for 2 nights and I must say I was thoroughly impressed. We were looking for a place near Brecon’s Beacon and this house was set in such a picturesque area with such stunning views. The rooms were all so cosy, cute, and functional and the heating was great. The breakfast hampers were fantastic and I would strongly recommend

Loved the style and the touches, and the accommodation was just great. Lovely picnic hamper for breakfast. Some of the decor looked like it needed a bit of a re-paint but it overall it was a really wonderful experience
