The Billiard Room at Great Campston

This two bedroomed stone cottage was built in 1884 and takes its name from the use made of it by Great Campston’s previous owners. It has been extensively renovated to provide luxurious holiday accommodation for four people, with magnificent views of The Skirrid and The Sugar Loaf.

There has been a settlement on the site since at least the 12th century, when it was a monastic grange serving Abbey Dore. The estate passed into private ownership after Henry VIII’s dissolution of the monasteries and has witnessed much history since then, including a visit from Charles I in 1645. As well as the neighbouring main house and the Billiard Room, the estate includes a working farm, woodland and extensive gardens.

Downstairs, there is a large, comfortable open-plan living and dining area with an open fireplace and French doors opening onto the garden. In addition, there is a well-equipped modern kitchen, utility room and lavatory. The spiral stone staircase (which may be unsuitable for the infirm and very young) leads to two double bedrooms, both of which are en suite.

There is plenty to do and see in the surrounding area, with the Brecon Beacons and the Wye Valley on your doorstop. Sporting activities nearby include mountain biking, riding, trekking, fishing, kayaking and golf, and all around are designated footpaths running through some of Britain’s loveliest countryside. For those more inclined to spiritual rather than physical pursuits, the Hay Festival, Brecon Jazz and the Green Man Festival are close at hand.

If you can tear yourself away from the Billiard Room’s cooking facilities, there is a wide range of possibilities for eating and drinking nearby, from fine dining to country pubs and cafes.


  • Welcome pack provided of milk, bread, homemade preserves, eggs and seasonal organic produce from the garden when available.
  • Starter pack of seasoned logs for the open fire. Additional supplies of logs can be purchased on request.
  • Weber barbecue available for use on terrace.
  • Secure storage for bikes, boots and wet equipment.
