The Sign
Hidden Mountain Gem
(TripAdvisor 09/05/11)

From start to finish, everything was organic and as nature intended. So much love and passion has been injected into the B&B and it is evident in every little detail. Gorgeous homemade bread made by Niki, honey from the farms own beehives, fresh eggs from the resident chickens...

The farm really is a family business and the children were extremely welcoming and made us feel part of the Ty Mynydd family, enthusiastically introducing us to all its members.

Location wise, it was perfect! In fact we drove around most of the mountains and found the views at the B&Bs own back door were the most breathtaking. Remember to bring a camera as no one would believe just how beautiful this little slice of heaven is!

All in all, my partner and I fell in love with this little rural hide away and charming family and can not wait to stay again…


The Best Farms to Stay on Around The World. (Sunday Times Travel 17/01/10)

'Never mind the immaculately restored/reimagined farmhouse, with its 2 double rooms to rent, or the pigs, sheep and cows and on this chemical free farm. Just look at the pretty patchwork views along the Wye Valley.....'

Waitrose Food Illustrated - July 2009

'I had already packed my warm jumpers for our stay in Hay-on-Wye. However the March weekend brought clear blue skies and warm spring sunshine, perfect for the six mile ascent to Ty Mynydd, an organic farmhouse in the Black Mountains.

Niki and John were the perfect hosts, offering a tranquil haven away from the stresses of life. Our bedroom was decorated in duck egg blues and creams with simple furniture, rustic floor coverings and fresh flowers. There were books and a radio but no sign of a TV to spoil the calm interior.

Several local pubs served excellent food for our evening meals. After the magical drive back to Ty Mynydd we tiptoed inside (candles had been left to welcome us) and slept between lavender-scented sheets in the most comfortable bed ever. We enjoyed fabulous breakfasts of Niki’s own sausages, organic eggs and homemade bread. I didn’t want to go home and I can’t wait to go back.'

Ty Mynydd B&B - Best for views.

'From this Black Mountain farm the views stretch across the Wye Valley's ever-changing patchwork as far as the eye can see. Equally impressive is the farmhouse itself .........transformed by Niki & John using reclaimed bricks and ash beams from their own woods. From bathrobes and bed linen to the bright orange egg yolks at breakfast, everythings organic and where possible home produced. If that leaves you hungry for more you can take a basket of goodies home with you.'
