This clergyman’s house above the River Usk has the feel of a family home with its Italianate campanile (bell tower) giving away Victorian origins. The entrance up steep steps is decorated with fishing impedimenta to prepare you for a weekend of casting rods and wading back home to dinner in front of roaring log fires. The hotel delivers all, with public rooms decorated in understated Lewis & Wood wallpapers and a broad stone terrace for those who just want to sip their coffee and drink in the tranquillity. The 20+ bedrooms vary between the cosily compact and the downright sumptuous. Gliffaes is the only Four Star Hotel in the Brecon Beacons National Park, an area of outstanding beauty. Use this as your base for a truly relaxing weekend in the country. If you're thinking of fly-fishing contact the hotel in advance to ask Jimmy the Ghillie about equipment hire and waders.

Ten great hotels near the best summer festivals this year by Adrian Mourby

"The Brecon Jazz Festival is one of the most popular festivals in Wales. Now in its 31st year the festival runs from 7-9 August this year, and features a huge range of performers across more than twenty concerts. As ever this year there’ll be Friday Fireworks, a Jazz Carnival parade on Saturday, and the Jazz Service on Sunday, plus free family events on the festival fringe. Unlike many rural festivals, there is no camping at Brecon Jazz, which makes local hotels very popular. One of the nearest, and certainly one of the best, is Gliffaes, which was once the home of a Victorian clergyman who loved fly-fishing on the River Usk. It is still very popular with fishing folk. The hotel will even arrange rods and waders for you. Gliffaes is also ideal for those who want a first-class meal at the end of a day tramping the Brecon Beacons."

Ten of the Best Historic Welsh Hotels by Adrian Mourby

"In 1885 a Welsh clergyman moved into his new house on the River Usk. It was an expensive building in the fashionable Italian style and by the time the Reverend West died, he had spent his way through three inheritances. The house was subsequently let to various dignitaries including the Breckonshire magistrate Sir Shirley Salt who then bought the house in 1903. In 1936 Gliffaes became a hotel and soon developed a loyal following amongst anglers."
