New owners of Welsh guest house plan to boost tourism with renovation proposal


Brecon guest house, The Borderers , has come under new ownership, with buyers Gail Sequeira and Kevin Harrhy now planning on a renovation across their new acquisition.

The nine-bedroom guest house, which was bought with help from a business loan of £245k from Natwest, will now be refurbished and modernised by the couple, in a bid to bring more tourism to the area of the Brecon Beacons.

The pair, who will enter into a business partnership for the first time together, will also utilise the business to its full potential by opening The Borderers all year round.

As Gail and Kevin explained: “We plan to reduce our environmental impact as much as we can by harvesting rainwater to water our plants, and we have switched to locally produced toiletries from Myddfai. We are also going to start composting soon, among other things.

“Our aim is to provide modern amenities, whilst retaining the charm of the 17th century coaching inn. We hope that this helps to leave all our guests with lasting positive memories of their stay in Brecon.

“This is our first experience of running a business together, and is the fulfilment of a life-long dream. We’re very excited about what the future holds.”
