Located in the picturesque setting of the market town of Crickhowell, with panoramic views of the Brecon Beacons National Park, Porthmawr offers an entirely different experience where the two families and friends can be together all weekend with no more expensive than a standard wedding at a hotel.

Homely, individual and relaxed, with friendly staff, our venue has built an excellent reputation over the last 5 years, hosting weddings of all sizes where each bride and groom have decided their own personal format and we have tailor-made the event to suit.

We are licensed for civil weddings, with a choice of 5 different areas, each with their own distinct charm, character and status - as you would expect of this Regency Mansion House. You could choose a Medieval Gatehouse with 530 years of history where Charles 1st once stayed, the front veranda, a beautifully restored Regency dining room or the Celtic style banqueting room with a wealth of oak and stone.

Protected from public gaze by the 12 foot high castellated wall, Porthmawr enjoys uninterrupted views over the Usk Basin, Black Mountains, Llangattock Escarpment and the Brecon Beacons.
