We would like to invite you to stay in our elegant Georgian manor house, located in the very heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Situated in the beautiful Llangorse Lake Valley and surrounded by some of the best walking country in the United Kingdom, Tall John's House is an ideal retreat.
We are blessed to have lovely countryside and dramatic natural scenery on our doorstep. For anyone who enjoys walking, cycling, golf, horse-riding, fishing or other outdoor country pursuits, a visit here will feel like a trip to paradise! We also have a table-tennis table, a small fitness suite and sauna facility. If you are a less energetic person, you can relax in front of our open log fires or play billiards in our snooker room.
Originally a Welsh long house, Tall John’s House has been shaped by British naval history. The famous Admiral Hamilton used his substantial prize money to create a wonderful Georgian manor house in the late 19th century. In the 1950s another admiral, Watson, bought the house and it is still in the Watson family’s possession. It now has all the comforts of the 21st century but has kept its character from the past six hundred years.
