A Taste of History

The name "Llanilid" means the land belonging to the church of St. Ilid.

These 4 and 5 star cottages lie on our organic farm which stands on a site dating back to Roman Times - a standing stone, marking a Centurian's tomb was found among the ruins of the church.

This is now in the British Museum, with copies in nearby Llywel Church and Brecon Museum.

21st Century Comforts

We have refurbished Llanilid Holiday Cottages to blend a sense of history with 21st century comforts; using original Welsh slate, oak beams and flooring, neutral colours and natural materials to create clean, uncluttered lines.

All cottages have central heating, well-equipped modern kitchens, bathrooms and laundry facilities.  Fluffy white towels are provided and the beds  made up with 100% cotton sheets and duvets.

Cot, highchair, stair gates and baby bath are also available on request.

Each cottage has its own lockable storage shed/drying room containing a barbecue and garden chairs for al fresco dining.  There is also an outside tap, located in the car park, for washing down bikes, boots, etc.

There is good mobile telephone reception and ample off road parking.

Recycling bins are provided on site.
