A long private drive takes you through an impressive collection of over 100 specimen trees to reach Gliffaes, a former clergyman’s house. This 19th-century Italianate building is set in 33-acre grounds in the shadow of the Black Mountains and on the edge of the River Usk in the Brecon Beacons National Park. The surrounding countryside is simply stunning with hills quilted with patchwork woods, hedges and sheep fields.
Now run by Susie and James Suter, Gliffaes has been beautifully restored with stucco-embellished ceilings, Delft tile-rimmed fireplaces, polished barley-twist wood, Lewis & Wood fabrics and antique chairs reupholstered in Welsh tweed. The oak-panelled drawing room with its roaring fire and large comfortable sofas is the perfect place to relax, looked after by a team of friendly and helpful staff giving unobtrusive yet excellent service, making you feel that you are a welcomed house guest in a luxurious country house.
