Porthmawr House

Porthmawr lives and breathes the past, but is decidedly of our times

Porthmawr is an intriguing mix of experiences. It is historic and contemporary. Set in three acres of sweeping gardens in the charming Brecon Beacons town of Crickhowell, it offers something you don’t often find – bed and breakfast with the accent on luxury. But then again, Porthmawr is no ordinary house.

Porthmawr reception hall

Porthmawr is a splendid Grade II Regency mansion complete with 15th-century castellated gatehouse that has been refurbished with great style and artistic flair. Plush furnishings, antiques and quirky modern artwork sit side-by-side in its elegant, tall-ceilinged rooms. It’s a theme that is carried through into the bedrooms, which combine classical features with modern influences.

Porthmawr drawing room

Porthmawr is cool and classical, stylish and spacious. Sit back and relax in its plushly appointed lounge or savour the splendour of the Drawing Room. The five bedrooms are individually designed and themed. All, of course, are fully en suite with sleek, modern bathrooms and luxury toiletries. Porthmawr is purpose-built for that special short break.

Porthmawr House

Choose what you want from a full Welsh breakfast with organic eggs, fresh mushrooms and local bacon and sausage. Or go for the continental or vegetarian options – again based on fresh, local ingredients. We support Fairtrade and re-cycling principles.

Porthmawr degas room

You’re More than Welcome…
…to make full use of Porthmawr’s stunning surroundings. Enjoy the mountain views from the terrace with a glass of wine, wander through the gardens, or explore our medieval gatehouse. Your room is available to you throughout the day – all we’d ask is that you vacate it by 10.30am on the day of leaving.
