On arrival we like to sit down with our guests and with a cup of tea, welsh cakes or bara brith (home made of course) we briefly get to know one another and we can give you any information you need for what you would like to do during your stay.
We offer Bed & Breakfast (B&B) with an optional evening meal.
We have two rooms - a double room which faces the front overlooking the Black Mountains and Mynnedd Troed and a twin room which faces the back overlooking the large garden and fields.
All the meals are freshly home-cooked with a traditional Welsh flavour using mainly produce from the farm and garden. Using our own farmed lamb and produce reduces our food mileage. Interesting home-cooked vegetarian meals are a specialty.
Our B&B was a Wheelwright’s cottage over 200 years ago. It has been added to and improved to provide comfortable warm bed and breakfast accommodation with a CO2 neutral log batch boiler poviding hot water and central heating and woodburner in the lounge and PV solar panels to provide electricity. It still retains many of the exposed original oak beams.
Upper Middle Road Farm B&B is a registered 5 acre (2 hectare) smallholding in the old Welsh Marches county of Radnorshire; with Breconshire just across the river Wye in the village; equidistant between Hay-on-Wye, Brecon and Builth Wells.
We have panoramic views of the Black Mountains sweeping around to the Brecon Beacons. Although quiet, the house is not totally isolated. The village of Boughrood (pronounced 'bockrude') is less than a gentle one mile walk down into the Wye Valley, with Llyswen (pronounced 'lease-when') across the bridge spanning the River Wye.
Danny and Karen Kelleher
We keep a small flock of sheep which provide meat for the house and fleece for Karen to spin and dye. Karen is active in the local Spinners', Dyers' and Weavers' Guild, and is happy to share the knowledge. The free-range hens provide the eggs that our guests can enjoy for their breakfast, together with fresh home baked organic bread using locally ground flour from Talgarth Mill , home-made jams and fruits from the garden. Bacon and sausages come from our local butcher who has his own abbatoir in Talgarth. . Most of our food is produced without artificial fertilisers or chemicals.
Guests are welcome to make themselves at home and to enjoy the garden and summer house with its wonderful views.
