General

Danyfan Carriage is an old railway carriage. It’s been lovingly restored using, where possible, local materials.

It has a beautifully comfortable bed, a wood burning stove, gas hob and grill and a table and chairs. It is part painted and part original wood, with art and botanical illustrations on the walls.

The carriage is in a small wood just next to a little stream. It has views up to the mountains- the Brecon Beacons. It has a sunny deck and a little garden with a fire pit for bbqs.

A few metres from the carriage is a compost loo, a shower (with hot water), and a Belfast sink.

We leave a cool box with bacon, milk and butter. Stevie makes a loaf of his sourdough bread, I make brownies. The guests are welcome to take eggs from our three hens who share the field with the carriage.

Directions


Directions By Car
If you have sat nav follow the directions based on the postcode LD3 8LG. This will take you straight to the house, although the 'you have arrived at your destination' tends to come just after the entrance to the main house. The entrance to the carriage is the next entrance on the right.
From the M4 East
- At junction 24 of the M4, take the A48/A449 exit to Newport(E)/Monmouth
- After about 12 miles take the A40 towards Abergavenny

From A40/A470 roundabout to the west of Brecon
- Take the B4601 towards Brecon
- After 200m turn right up the Ffrwdgrech Rd opposite the Drovers Arms pub
- After 3/4 mile take the left fork at a 3 way junction, you will see amazing views of the mountains straight ahead. You may start to get nervous at this point as it is a very narrow country lane, but don't worry you're nearly there
- Continue up the road for 3/4 mile as it winds up the hill. You will pass some cottages, a sharp S bend and a road to your left
- You will see stone gateposts and a green gate on your right, this is the entrance to Danyfan. Keep going for another 200m and the entrance for the carriage is next on the right.
- If you come to a farm on the left called Cwmgwdi Farm you've gone about 400m too far. Turn around and Danyfan Carriage is the first entrance on the left.
