Flag & Castle House, Smart Bed & Breakfast in Brecon
Flag & Castle House offers a warm and cosy stay in the heart of Brecon. The House is a 18th Century former public house with many period features and we offer four comfortable ensuite rooms for up to seven people.
We are 5 minutes from the centre of Brecon and its many facilities and opposite the famous Christ College School.
If driving, the House is 10 minutes from the Storey Arms at the base of Pen-Y-Fan and 10 minutes walk from the start of the many trails in the National Park. The beautiful caves and waterfalls at Clyngwyn and Ystradfellte are only a 30 minute drive.
We welcome a wide range of guests but especially can cater for walkers, bikers and cyclists. If you are looking for a base to explore the Brecon Beacons and beyond then a stay in the Flag & Castle House is a superb and central location for the National Park, whilst having the convenience of the pubs and restaurants in Brecon for a drink and dinner.
We provide both a continental breakfast (choice of cereals, croissants, breads, Welsh yoghurts and fruit with a selection or preserves and juices and a cooked breakfast for those needing extra fortification. Cooked breakfast includes locally sourced sausages, thick cut bacon, tomatoes (home grown in summer), mushrooms, toast, beans and your choice of eggs. Alternatively a choice of scrambled, fried, boiled or poached eggs is available. All are served with a pot of tea or cafetiere of real coffee. Vegetarian cooked breakfasts are also available.
We try to cater for most tastes and if you have any particular dietary requirements (including any food allergies) we would ask that you let us know at the earliest opportunity.
We have comfortable seating area for planning your day out or alternatively a day inside if the weather is more inclement.
