If you are looking for somewhere bland and faceless with all the character of a corporate hotel then Gliffaes is certainly not for you. Hidden off the beaten track in between the Brecon Beacons and the Black Mountains is one of Wale s best kept secrets. Among the old trees spacious lawns and with a commanding view of the River Usk is Gliffaes Country House built in 1888. The same family has run the house as a hotel and fly-fishing lodge since 1948. Gliffaes has 33 acres of grounds 23 individually decorated en-suite rooms and 2.5 miles of fishing.
