How to find our hotel in the Brecon Beacons

Gliffaes is located just 3 miles from Crickhowell and about 10 miles from Brecon. With beautiful views of the rolling hills in the Black Mountains and close proximity to the River Usk, our hotel is nestled right in the heart of the Brecon Beacons and is the perfect place to stay.

A destination for walkers, mountain bikers, fishermen, canoeists, birdwatchers, nature lovers…the list goes on. Whatever the reason for your stay, we welcome everyone to Gliffaes. Our secluded piece of paradise is surprisingly easy to get to; set beside the picturesque River Usk which runs through the pleasant market towns of Brecon and Abergavenny, we are just 3 miles west of the lively village of Crickhowell and are well served by road and rail.


We are one of the most accessible hotels South Wales has to offer. To join us from West London, your drive will take 3 hours or if you come to us from Heathrow you can take the M4 straight for 2 hours 30 minutes. If you are travelling from the Midlands or the North then we are 45 minutes off the M5.

It is worth remembering that if you are using a Satnav we can be a little tricky to find. While there’s no better place for fishing in Wales, don’t be tempted to 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.


After your rail journey, we are an 8-mile taxi ride from Abergavenny station. This is our closest station which is just off the main London to Cardiff line. Trains leave from London Paddington roughly every hour. Please change at Newport, South Wales for the short trip to Abergavenny. The whole journey should take no more than 2 hours 30 minutes. Abergavenny is also on the line between Manchester Piccadilly and Cardiff. For taxi transfers, we recommend CTE on 01873 811 764.


For guests travelling from further afield, we are close to two popular airports; the closest being Cardiff which is approximately an hour away and Bristol, at around 1 hour 20 minutes. Further away than these are Birmingham, then Heathrow. For all airport transfers, we recommend Gareth at CTE 01873 811 764.

Offering seclusion, respite and a beautiful location, no other hotels in Brecon Beacons compare to Gliffaes. Should you require any further information on finding us, give us a call on 01874 730 371.
