The building has stood here for 500 years offering the traveller and visitor a relaxed and warm welcome. It is extremely spacious and comfortable, helping us to create a feeling of warmth and well being.
We want you to relax in the cosy and welcoming surroundings of this charming family-run Inn. We aim to achieve a warmth and quiet relaxation about the place made easy by the atmosphere of the building itself, we combine friendly and attentive service with a warm welcome.
The building is a fine example of a spacious, rambling country hostelry. It stands on the road but preserves its dignity by being sufficiently withdrawn behind its cobbled forecourt and having extensive private gardens to the rear. Constructed around a tree, still visible in the kitchen and inside carved wood and stone walls continue the natural look of the exterior.
This substantial Inn, a listed property believed to date from the 15th Century, was for many years a coaching inn on the main Hereford to Brecon road. Three Cocks was also an important junction of the Hereford, Hay & Brecon Railway with the Mid Wales Railway in the golden years of steam. Nowadays, it retains this convenient position with fast and easy access to all parts of mid Wales and the Hereford Marches. This makes it the perfect base for sampling the riches of Powys, Mid Wales and the border country of Herefordshire and Shropshire.
