If you only have a couple of days away it is difficult to know what is worth seeing, how to get there and how to make sense of what you are visiting. It can pay dividends to use the services of a local expert or guide.
I have used guides on many holidays around the globe and found that I was able to get beyond the tourist trail and discover places I would never have found and learnt about the history and culture of the region from one of the locals. So if you are coming to Wales for a few days then I can whole heartily recommend guide Rob Rees.
Rob has 25 years experience in showing off the best of the Brecon Beacons whether you would like to explore on foot, by bike (we can arrange can bike hire for you) or by car. Rob has put together a series of suggested trips centered on Gliffaes. His trips cover the Brecon Beacons, The Black Mountains, ‘Castles and Conflicts’ (medieval history of these much contested border lands) and the how the Industrial Revolution shaped South Wales.
So if you want to find the perfect view or the hidden waterfall or that great pub for lunch, don’t just guess at it, get it right and get a guide for the day. Contact Rob directly via his website and tell him you are staying at Gliffaes.
We are still unsure as to when we can re-open. I think it will be around the 24th May.
Gliffaes will not be open for outdoor dining only – I am afraid the numbers don’t stack up for us.
Mark Drakeford, The Welsh First Minister has given no definitive date for the opening of indoor hospitality in Wales.
This matter is further confused by the local elections on the 6th May. If Labour is returned to power he tells us that he will be minded to consider the opening of indoor hospitality on the 17th May and I guess he will give us about a week’s notice taking us to the 24th May.
Online booking is available and reception will be staffed from 9am to midday from Monday to Saturday, so please do call us.
Thank you for all your support and we hope to see you in May and beyond.
James & Susie Suter and all the team at Gliffaes.
