Introduction

The Old Wash House


The lovely upper Usk Valley in the Brecon Beacons National Park is the peaceful location of The Old Wash House at Ynysmarchog in Trecastle (Trecastell). The name “Ynysmarchog” translated from Welsh means “The Island or Water Meadow of the Knight” and is historically understood to refer to Sir Watkin Llwyd who was killed at the battle of Agincourt. The farm dates from Elizabethan times and still retains a natural charm and peaceful location in a spectacular region within the Brecon Beacons National Park. You’ll come to The Old Wash House if you are looking for something a little different for your holiday. Peace and quiet, natural beauty, outdoor pursuits or perhaps a wander around this historically rich area.
