Perfect for our family gathering !
The rustic splendour of Tall John's and the adjoining Honeysuckle cottage were perfect for our pre Christmas family get together. There were 20 of us in total and everyone had a great time thanks to the absolutely superb service provided by the outstandingly friendly, helpful and efficient housekeeper Liz. She not only responded well to our requests but also anticipated what we might want and made some great suggestions. We ordered two 3 course meals during our stay and they were both superb - the cheese souffle starter was the best I have ever had and the rest of the food was great too - and very reasonably priced. I would thoroughly recommend Tall John's to anyone looking for a large country house with great service and in an excellent location for walking in the beautiful Brecon Beacons area.
A wonderful 60th Birthday party weekend
What a wonderful house to stay in to celebrate my husband's 60th Birthday along with old friends. Storm Brian did his best to dampen our enthusiasm but to no avail. The house was extremely comfortable and provided for all our needs. We were looked after superbly by the staff who were very helpful. Ken did a wonderful dinner for us on the Saturday evening along with a much needed full English the following morning.
A wonderful house to relax in and enjoy the company of great friends without the hassle of cooking and clearing up.
Thank you all for a great time.
Thank you so much for this nice review Catherine. Sorry about the storm but the weather just wouldn’t do what we told it to!
