East Hook Farmhouse is a Georgian Farmhouse once forming part of the East Hook Estate. The front part of the house dates back to c.1760, whilst the back part of the house is much older and appears to be part of an old Welsh long house. Internally, the staircase is a Chinese Chippendale dating to the late 19th century and reputed to be of one of five in Wales. Over the years the present owners have successfully established a Bed & Breakfast business while also running the beef and sheep farm. The B&B business has been rated 4 Star by Visit Wales and was a Certificate of Excellence winner with Trip Advisor in 2014. The owners have 3 en suite B&B bedrooms in the main farmhouse and a further 3 en suite B&B bedrooms that are attached to the holiday cottage that is adjacent to the farmhouse. The 1 bedroom holiday cottage was converted from an old stone barn and has a flexible layout allowing it to have 2 bedrooms if you use the attached B&B suite that has an inter-connecting door. The owners have also offer riding holidays for those guests that wish to bring their horse and ponies. The property enjoys a central location in the county that makes it a perfect location for tourists to stay and use as a base to explore all the visitor attractions on offer.
