Llundain Fach Little London
Llundain Fach Little London B&B is set in a secluded location just off the Swansea-Brecon Road (A4067) on the banks of the River Tawe, and surrounded by trees.
Llundain Fach Little London has been a rest-place for travellers since the Welsh drovers used to stay here on their way to the London markets. The facilities have been upgraded since then, and peace and relaxation are guaranteed.
We are a couple of old baby-boomers who really enjoy welcoming visitors to our lovely home and the beauty and interest of the southern Brecon Beacons National Park and surrounding area.
The location is well-regarded for walking and bike-riding: short, long, easy, or challenging; and exploring the industrial archaeology of mines, foundries and remains of the Swansea canal. Red kites abound and the bird life you can see just from your bedroom window is something special (I've seen a buzzard riding the thermals off our roof, kingfishers zooming up the drive, and a grey heron resting in our flowerbed). Of course the landscape and wildlife make it a delight for photographers as well.
Other local activities include caving, horseriding, canyoning (that's jumping off waterfalls, in case you weren't sure), visiting the gardens and castles in the area, drives down to The Gower, and local towns including Swansea, Pontardawe, Brecon, Neath and so on.
We have two first-floor double bedrooms: Room 1 with kingsize bed and en-suite shower room; Room 2 with double bed and separate shower room. Both have views down to the garden and the River Tawe. Both rooms have tea and coffee facilities, and hair dryer; and all linen is provided. A third 2-bunk bedroom on the same floor is available only for families or friends who are travelling together and have also booked one or other of the bedrooms. We can also provide a cot on request for Room 1. Ironing board and iron available.
If your plans for a day out are spoilt by bad weather or a nasty blister, or even if you've just had enough of the fabulous landscape, there is also a cosy study between the bedrooms, with books, cards, old board games, that sort of thing. Make yourselves at home.
There is a large lawn and a small woods, where you can sit by the river's edge and enjoy the wildlife: ducks, woodpeckers and other woodland birds, and the occasional otter and kingfisher if you're lucky. Fishing enthusiasts are welcome to try fishing from our banks, and licences can be purchased locally.
Breakfasts are all freshly cooked, and we use the best local ingredients possible, including homemade bread and jams, prize-winning bacon and pork sausages, and locally-made vegetarian sausages; please discuss any special dietary requests in advance so we can make sure you enjoy your stay.
There are some excellent pubs in the area for meals and real ales, or pick up a take-away from nearby Ystradgynlais to enjoy in the garden, or our farmhouse kitchen. Home cooked evening meals can be provided by prior arrangement, at a modest extra charge. If the weather is fine we might even fire up the barbeque...
