Quite simply the perfect Bed and Breakfast!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 07 Oct 2021
We took our two dogs and had a great stay. What a beautiful house- full of amazing antiques and unusual things lovingly collected over the years. Gorgeous rooms-ours had a massive bathroom with super shower. Andy was running the show alone as his wife had to be away. He was the perfect host and did wonderful breakfasts! His wife's homemade jams are amazing. He even repaired one of our dog-leads; nothing was too much trouble. Thoroughly recommend Lea House and will definitely be going again.
Date of stay: October 2021
Room Tip: All rooms are lovely and quiet and you get everything you could possibly need.

    Visited Lea house for 2 nights beginning of September. Andy and Sophie perfect hosts with lots of time for their guests . Room was great, shower fantastic, huge bed , lovely old building lots of character. . Breakfast was fantastic (English breakfast and smoked haddock with poached egg) …… we visited the pub next door and had an Indian meal which was beautiful. All the locals made us feel welcome

    We only stayed here for one night and wished it had been longer. Our hosts could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Our room, the Hayloft, was superb, very comfortable and well equipped. The breakfast was exceptional with a superb platter of fruit and excellent porridge - exactly what we wanted! Can highly recommend.

    Very welcoming hosts Sophie and Andy who was very pleasant! Me and the girlfriend used our voucher through buyagift and we couldn’t of been more happier, the 400 year old property was really ooozing with character and that rustic feel to it.

    We stayed in the ‘Cider room” which when we opened the door we was both wowed with how much detail has gone into the room. Tea and coffee making facilities within the room, tv, a nice big fan if you decide to get too hot in the room, however the bathroom done it for me, very nice and modern and the hand wash/ bodywash is to die for!!!!

    Breakfast was definitely award winning quality! Absolutely cooked to perfection and had no faults with it whatsoever, definitely worth trying out.

    Lea house is situated perfectly as you are next door to the Crown inn which is only a 2 minute walk away, however you can travel out to other villages/market towns which isn’t too far away.

    I would definitely highly recommend staying at Lea House as the host really make your stay very welcome and very friendly, I will be definitely be back in the near future.

    Room tip: You could probably fit 3/4 cars on the drive, however Andy will kindly help you to park

    We stayed here with our pup for a week. Sophie and Andy were great and extremely helpful. Our pup has tummy problems and is on a raw diet. They kept all our raw food frozen for us and made sure we had some defrosted for use daily. Despite Luna escaping one morning and ending up doing a mad run into their private space they were so accommodating. Sophie cooks an amazing breakfast to order daily, the BnB is clean, beautifully kept and handy for local regions. We are walkers and found it really easy to navigate our way to fabulous walks every day. We even ranged to Penn y Fann in the Brecons. Highly recommend staying here.

    Room tip: We took a crate for the dog to keep her off furniture

    Lea House is a beautiful example of a quintessentially English period property, and is home to a very welcoming and high quality Bed and Breakfast.

    From the moment we arrived and were given help in parking up, throughout our brief stay (en-route to South Wales) Sophie and Andy got the balance just right in terms of being helpful but not interfering.

    The setting is quiet, and the house is beautifully adorned with lots of tasteful ornaments and pictures, making it feel like a home from home. Our Family room was spacious and well equipped, with a good sized shower room and twin beds for the kids as well as a very comfortable double for Mum and Dad.

    The highlight of any good stopover for me is the Breakfast, and this didn’t disappoint - there was a wide choice of options ordered the night before, and there was no drama catering for our Vegan Daughter.

    The cooked English Breakfast was just glorious, every ingredient of the highest quality and well cooked - there was the option of sampling Sophie’s homemade jam with toast but we were all too full - next time! We also missed out on Andy’s home grown tomatoes which weren’t quite ripe yet, another reason to return!

    Overall a very professionally run, beautifully appointed property, with a warm welcome and nothing too much trouble, thoroughly recommended for any type of stopover!
