According to Alfred Theodore Arber-Cookes "Pages from the History of Llandovery", The Drovers dates from the late eighteenth or early nineteenth century but with parts possibly dating further back. The property was once known as Glenview and in 1811 was occupied by an attorney at law. Towards the end of the nineteenth century the house came into the possession of Rev.D.Price who let it as a ladies boarding school. The current owners operated it as a restaurant from 1987 and it traded very successfully for several years before changing to its current use as an upmarket B&B.

We understand the property is Grade II listed with many original features being retained including a Jacobean door understood to date from the 17th Century.

The accommodation is arranged over 3 floors with the ground floor comprising sitting room, dining area, lounge, feature wine store and cellar, catering kitchen, conservatory lounge and conservatory. From the hallway 2 staircases lead to the first floor landing with private bedroom and sitting room to the front of the property and three colour themed B&B bedrooms each with en-suite, leading to the rear of the property. A further staircase leads to the second floor with 3 B&B bedrooms with 1 en-suite and 1 private bathroom.To the rear is an enclosed garden with gated access being part lawned with a block paved driveway and parking for several vehicles. The property also benefits from several storage sheds and workshop.
