Allt Yr Ynys Country Hotel
Rated: 3 Star
Room Rates: From £65 to £140
Nestling in the foothills of the Black Mountains just off the A465, 5 miles or a 10 minute drive from Abergavenny, you will find the Allt Yr Ynys Country House Hotelâ€¦.. a beautifully preserved 16th Century manor house on the fringes of the Brecon Beacons National Park, with views over the surrounding hills. The hotel is enclosed in 16 acres of parkland, gardens and woodland and a beautiful lavender filled Elizabethan walled garden; the perfect setting for al fresco dining, morning coffees, afternoon teas, or simply a lazy pint. Following a flood last year, the hotel has been extensively refurbished, combining contemporary design with original features to create a modern and informal feel to the hotel. The owners particularly wanted to steer away from the perception of stuffy formality often associated with country house hotels. Accommodation includes a 16th century panelled 4-poster suite and 20 further en-suite rooms. Conferences, weddings and civil partnerships are a speciality with the main function room seating up to 85 guests. Greater numbers can be accommodated in marquees within gardens providing a superb backdrop for perfect wedding photographs. Civil ceremonies can also be held in several rooms, the most popular being the Jacobean panelled drawing room. The hotel is also unique in the area in offering an indoor heated swimming pool and sauna, and under cover clay pigeon shooting range.
