ISLWYN Customer Reviews

 “Once you’ve stayed at The Coach House you will want to return. We have been coming to Brecon regularly for many years and it’s our first choice and favourite by a mile. The attention to detail is phenomenal and the breakfasts are like fine dining. There’s an ambiance of calm tranquillity and beautiful tastefully decorated rooms, spotlessly clean throughout and equipped with every comfort. Guests receive a warm welcome and The Coach House is ideally situated with some guest parking spaces on site and a car park behind.

Room Tip: Book early – it fills up!”


We spend two nights at the coach house and would go back in a heartbeat. Not only were the owners incredibly friendly and accommodating, the room (Islwyn) was very luxurious and they use the latest technology and modern comforts to accommodate you. The bed and shower were incredibly comfortable which is very pleasant after a day’s walk in the beacons.”

History

William Thomas, bardic name Islwyn (3 April 1832 – 20 November 1878), was a Welsh language poet and Christian clergyman. His best known poems were both called Yr Ystorm [‘The Storm’], and were written in response to the sudden death of his fiancee.

The Borough of Islwyn was one of five local government districts of Gwent from 1974 to 1996.

The district was formed under the Local Government Act 1972 from part of the administrative county of Monmouthshire, namely the urban districts of Abercarn, Mynyddislwyn and Risca, and the Bedwellty urban district less the wards of Aberbargoed, Cwmsyfiog, New Tredegar and Phillipstown.

The district’s name (meaning “below the grove”) was derived from the ancient parish of Mynyddislwyn which covered its area. This was shown in the borough’s coat of arms which represented a mountain below a grove of oak trees. Islwyn was also the nom de plume of local poet William Thomas (1832-1878).

The borough was abolished in 1996, when its area became part of Caerphilly County Borough.

Islwyn continues as a Westminster constituency and a Welsh Assembly constituency.

Its best-known MP was Neil Kinnock.
