We pride ourselves on being more than 'just a B&B'. We help our guests truly experience the wonder of these valleys, and make memories that will last a lifetime. We have rapidly become a destination for package based adventure in mid-Wales & Southern Snowdonia.


Bolt-ons are a selection of activities or deals using local expert indie micro-businesses and charities, to be added on to an existing booking. (In contrast to our Experience Holidays which combine accommodation and activites into a complete package) We utilise our relationships and knowledge of the area to get exclusive tailored versions of existing packages or completely new experiences for you to enjoy. 

All are subject to availability.
