**Good Pub Guide "2010 Inn of the Year!**

The Bear Hotel is famous far and wide for its welcoming atmosphere, historic character, convivial surroundings and good food. A cobbled forecourt, archway into the inner courtyard and 19th-century stagecoach timetable in the bar are all reminders of the Bear's former role.

Set in the heart of The Brecon Beacons National Park, one of Britain's most beautiful wilderness areas you'll find some of the finest walks in Britain with the Beacons themselves and The Black Mountains right on our doorstep. It feels like another world yet we're just an hours drive from Bristol and less than an hour from Cardiff.

The Bear's low-beamed bar, filled with antiques and warmed by a roaring log fire in winter, has won the 'Best Inn in UK 2010' award. It sets the style for a place to stay, which is warm and characterful rather than a hotel in the grand manner. You'll be looked after by friendly hosts Judith and Steve Hindmarsh, who are also proud of the Bear's reputation for serving interesting, freshly cooked food (which has won recognition in Britain and the USA).

Although a building of great antiquity - it dates back to 1432 - the Bear tastefully incorporates all modern comforts into its historic surroundings. Rooms within the hotel and the renovated courtyard - a blaze of colour with hanging baskets in summer - are individually furnished with carefully chosen fabrics. Popular with locals and visitors alike, the Bear is the social hub of the pretty little town of Crickhowell

Set in the heart of The Brecon Beacons National Park, one of Britain's most beautiful wilderness areas you'll find some of the finest walks in Britain with the Beacons themselves and The Black Mountains right on our doorstep. It feels like another world yet we're just an hours drive from Bristol and less than an hour from Cardiff. Step into a piece of History

Crickhowell (population about 2000) is a thriving market town snuggling between the softly rounded Black Mountains and the dramatic Brecon Beacons, in arguably the most beautiful valley in the National Park. It is a lively, friendly community with a strong identity, with excellent individual shops. Although in the heart of the countryside, travel to and from Crickhowell is easy. Only three hours from London, less than two hours from Birmingham & under an hour from Cardiff, Crickhowell is convenient for motorists.

Conference facilities available. Limited disabled facilities. Dogs Welcome.
