Little Bettws Guest House, located on the western edge of the Edw Valley, is a beautiful stone building, formerly a Victorian school, dating from 1874. This tranquil and captivating place is set within its own 5 acres of grounds with the River Edw, a tributary of the Wye, running through. Next door stands the small yet impressive 1873 Bettws Church.
Some of the land surrounding Little Bettws Guest House is a designated ‘Site of Special Scientific Interest’ due to the profusion of meadow flowers on show during the summer months. There is a lovely lawned garden and orchard to view the beauty of this area from and if you’re lucky there is the possibility of spotting a heron nearby fishing in the river.
Elizabeth makes an attentive host and both riders and their trusty steeds can rest assured that they will be very well looked after during their stay.
There are a couple of friendly resident dogs and ponies and your host here has a keen interest in carriage driving. Artisan cider is made on the premises by Elizabeth’s husband.
Accommodation is a compact self-contained annex accessed by French doors from the garden.
If you have the energy after a day exploring the trails on horseback then you should step outside after nightfall for a spot of star-gazing. This peaceful spot in Mid Wales boasts some of the best dark skies in the UK.
