Penbont House


in Elan Valley

Delightfully situated on a verdant hillside below the Pen y Garreg dam, these traditional Welsh tearooms are definitely worth a stop when driving in the Elan Valley. Bara brith (a rich, fruit tea-loaf), Welsh cakes, properly brewed tea and light lunches can be taken on the lawn, or in the charming house itself.

The B&B accommodation (£70 for a quad or double) is outstanding value.
