About Us


Set within stunningly beautiful Welsh Borders countryside, on the fringes of the Brecon Beacons National Park, the Black Mountains form a magnificent backdrop to  Allt Yr Ynys Country Hotel, a converted 16th century manor house offering a comprehensive range of resort facilities.

If you seek tranquillity, rest and beauty, then look no further.
