How to find one of the best places to stay in Wales


Just 3 miles from Crickhowell and about 10 miles from Brecon, we’re right in the heart of the Brecon Beacons and the glorious Black Mountains.

So Easy to Get To

Gliffaes is tucked under the magnificent uplands of the Brecon Beacons National Park, a destination for walkers, mountain bikers, fishermen, canoeists and bird watchers.

Our South Wales hotel is situated alongside the River Usk which runs through the pleasant market towns of Brecon and Abergavenny, and is just 3 miles west of the lively village of Crickhowell.

Despite the rural and tranquil location which makes us on of the best places to stay in Wales, it is still easy to get to us as we are well served by road and rail.

By Road

Gliffaes is a 3-hour drive from West London or about 2.5 hours from Heathrow straight down the M4. If you are coming from the Midlands or the North we are about 45 minutes off the M5.

Please note, if using a Satnav, we can be a little tricky to find. Don’t use our postcode, as you could end up on the wrong side of the river, instead set your Satnav to take you to the town of Crickhowell, then follow these driving instructions.

By Rail

Gliffaes is an 8-mile taxi ride from Abergavenny station, which is just off the main London to Cardiff line. Trains leave from London Paddington roughly every hour.

You should change at Newport, South Wales for the short trip to Abergavenny. The whole journey should take no more than 2.5 hours. Abergavenny is also on the line between Manchester Piccadilly and Cardiff.

For taxi transfers we recommend Town to Town.

By Air

The closest airport to Gliffaes is Cardiff (about an hour), next would be Bristol (about 1hr 20 minutes), then Birmingham, then Heathrow.

For all airport transfers we recommend “Airports Direct”.
