Accommodation Description:

The Ty Newydd Country Hotel is set at the end of a lengthy drive off the A4059 on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park. The house was originally built by the coal baron, William Llewellyn, the uncle of Olympic show jumping gold medalist Sir Harry Llewellyn, who trained his horse Foxhunter here.The detached property was constructed in the 1930s as a private house. The main building is of neo-Georgian style with rendered elevations under slate covered roofs and is arranged over two floors.

The bedroom wings and function rooms were added in 1989 and 1991 and more recently conservatory extensions have also been added to side and rear of the building.The Ty Newydd is now a busy country hotel, and is particularly popular as a quality choice for weddings hosting, on average, 100 weddings per year.The 28 en suite bedrooms are complemented by the elegant Foxhunter Suite with its adjoining Olympic Bar, the George Suite, which also serves as the hotels restaurant serving freshly prepared locally sourced food, the residents bar with three quarter height oak paneling and residents lounge with an open fireplace and adjoining library. The grounds extend to over three acres, with magnificent views of the Beacons and Neath Valley, and provide ample parking for coaches and larger functions.
