The Half Moon Hotel Welcomes You
Situated in Llanthony, Wales
The Half Moon Hotel is a beautiful hotel in Wales. Situated in Llanthony, it sits nestled in the heart of the Black Mountains in Wales. We are a traditional Welsh Inn, which was originally built as two workmen's cottages in the 1700s, with a natural flagstone floor, a roaring log fire on cold days and cosy seating areas, serving locally sourced food and wonderful ales. B&B is also available and pets are welcomed.
Llanthony is the ideal place to enjoy peace, quiet and tranquillity. You can go for some gentle walking, do some more serious hiking, mountain biking, horse riding or take a road cycle through the winding and undulating country lanes up to Hay Bluff and the world-famous town of books, Hay-on-Wye.

We're close to lots of places of interest to visit. Take a trip to Grwyne Fawr reservoir on foot, by mountain bike or on horseback. The reservoir is located just over the hill in the valley of the Grwyne Fawr which was the site of the murder in 1136 of the Norman Marcher lord Richard de Clare, 1st Earl of Hertford, by the Welsh under Iorwerth ab Owain and his brother Morgan, grandson's of Caradog ap Gruffydd. This resulted in a period of conflict between the Welsh and English in South Wales.
Karen opened the pub especially for us on a rainy lunchtime Wednesday in March. Seven of us pitched up on our horses, tied them up in carpark and enjoyed a few drinks and snack lunches before a roaring fire in the bar. All very hospitable.
