Spring has sprung!


Picturesque surroundings and a 4 Star Gold rating from Visit Wales make Glen Yr Afon House Hotel the perfect setting for an excellent staycation in South Wales. Built beside the river in the pretty town of Usk, Monmouthshire, our 27-bedroom hotel is privately owned, family run and offers exemplary en-suite accommodation for everyone from business guests to holidaymakers.

Now Spring has sprung we have some special offers for that short break away in beautiful South Wales.

Explorers frequently find their way to the atmospheric ruins of Tintern Abbey – the inspiration for numerous artists and photographers – and the Brecon Beacons National Park, with its splendid mountains and walking trails.
