The Experience

Warmth, colour, children and activity: this house is huge fun. Tiggy welcomes you like family; help collect eggs, feed the lambs, drop your shoes by the fire. The farmhouse and barn are stylishly relaxed; deep sofas, tartan throws, heaps of books, long convivial table; views to the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains are inspiring. Bedrooms are soft, simple sanctuaries with Jo Malone bathroom treats. The children’s room zings with murals; toys, kids’ sitting room, sandpit – it’s child heaven. Walk, fish, canoe, book-browse in Hay or stroll the estate. Homemade cakes and whisky to help yourself to: fine hospitality and Tiggy is wonderful.

Fabulous place to stay and Tiggy is a sensational hostess. Generosity and kindness which left us feeling wonderfully looked after. Thank you and we will be back.

Fabulous B & B in a stunningly beautiful location. We loved the quirky character of the place. Tiggy and Charlie were such kind hosts- couldn't do enough for us. Will definitely return!

Sarah, Northampton

We stayed here unexpectedly last week. Made very welcome, very comfortable and with amazing mountain views.


Tiggy is a wonderful hostess. It was just like being at home with the run of the house , the pets and the wonderful food. Could not have been better and we bedlam’s part of the family! Breakfasts were to die for and the picnics sublime. Our room was luxurious, turn down each night and tea each morning! Well worth the visit! Tony and Carole

Tony, Storrington

We’ve just returned from the most wonderful, relaxing few days at beautiful Ty’r Chanter. Tiggy and her family made us feel very welcome, the children had lots of fun and we have come back feeling quite rejuvenated! Hope to be back for a fishing lesson!

Susannah, Bath

Ty'r Chanter, Tiggy, her family, the surrounding countryside and the views are all simply magical. This is our second time visiting this wonderful place. Tiggy makes everyone feel welcome with lashings of home baked cakes, incredible breakfasts and her passion and for fishing and salmon conservation is inspiring. Our children (aged 7-9) had the most wonderful time being taught to fly fish by Tiggy, making bonfires, picnicking, roasting marshmallows, building dens, climbing trees, collecting eggs and playing in the stunning river. And Tiggy will never let you leave without catching a fish!

Becky, Cirencester

What a fantastic weekend we had staying with Tiggy. Such a warm welcoming host and wonderful surroundings. Truly spectacular walks along the river. Just perfect . And the breakfast ! Superb thanks Tiggy . We’ll be back Jeremy Somers and Jane Hamshere ( and little leo )

I love staying at Tyr Chanter and always try to stay there when I make my annual visit to Wales. It is a beautiful location and the accommodation, breakfasts, and ambience are delightful. It's a very special place. Tiggy is wonderful and her hospitality is second to none. This time I reaped the added benefit of also being looked after by her husband Charlie and her son Harry who were great fun. It's a wonderful place to stay and I highly recommend it.

Kate, Exeter

We were lucky enough to stay at Ty’r Chanter for a night. Tiggy was so welcoming and accommodating, there is a very relaxed atmosphere and nothing is too much trouble. The breakfast was amazing, a double thumbs up from my husband which is not easily achieved when it comes to food. I would recommend staying here as there is something for everyone.

Katie, Uckfield

Absolutely amazing place! Tiggy was amazing with the boys- they absolutely loved her. Cakes, activities, animals and such a homely feel! We will be going back for the fishing experience soon!

Samantha, Poole

So happy to return to our favourite place. As always, the views were out of this world, breakfasts to set us up for each day and Tiggy looking after us, treating us like family and ensuring we had a wonderful time and amazing memories to take home. Can’t wait to return again soon.

Heather, Appin

Tiggy and Tyrchanter have just given us the most wonderful weekend. Given what we had read and heard, our expectations were high - and even so we were impressed on every level. Seriously, the location, the house and its host family are exceptional. You are a marvel Tiggy - we are already plotting when, and how, we will be back. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Jo, Swanbourne

Looking for a last minute escape for two Labradors, two naughty boys and one tired husband and found the perfect solution at Ty'r Chanter. Everyone had a marvellous time and we can't wait to return!

Christina, Lambourn

We stayed for three nights with Tiggy. She was incredibly welcoming, very kind and full of fun. We took our spaniel Ruby who had a great time running around with Tiggy’s dogs. We were fed the best breakfasts I’ve ever had and copious amounts of cake. The house is very comfortable and we felt very relaxed. The setting of the welsh countryside is breathtaking. We would highly recommend a break here.

Paula, Preston

Absolutely fantastic.... really clean, comfortable, welcoming and one felt part of the family...Top class

Nic, London

This is our second stay with Tiggy.. we absolutely love the whole package! She is so welcoming, her breakfasts and fabulous packed lunches with homemade cakes are excellent and of course the house and views are stunning. Nothing was too much trouble in a very relaxed way!

Emily, Hayward’s Heath

What a find! Tiggy is not only a charming hostess but also a gifted fly fishing guide. Her relaxed style helped to improve our fishing experience. Vicky and I will be back to enjoy this wonderful B&B !

Ian, Walton on Thames

THE most wonderful place for hubby’s birthday and our 3 year old was spell-bound with Tiggy so ended up doing a spot of fishing too which she talks about 6 months on. Could not have anticipated such warmth, laughter and originality when popping away for a weekend! We’ll be back...

Local points of interest from Tiggy Pettifer

  • Tiggy is a qualified AAPGAI fishing instructor and takes her clients down to the Usk to catch a trout or salmon if they are really lucky!
  • Hay on Wye- great for the festival, or just book browsing. Cardiff is only 45 minutes away - 6 nations rugby? shopping? Cardiff Bay? the choices are huge! Green Man Festival is held one mile away at Glanusk.
  • Crickhowell- great butchers, Webbs, the Harrods of Powys! great Pubs and good food.
  • Some of the best pot holing in the country. Canoe the wye. Climb the Brecon Beacons. Get lost in the Black Mountains. Catch a wild brownie in the Usk.
  • Walk the Brecon to Newport Canal. Ride over the black mountains. Swim in the waterfalls of Talybont.
  • The adventures are limitless here!!!
