Why we've chosen Old Radnor Barn:

Old Radnor Barn is designated a grade 2 listed building by Cadw and dates back nearly 300 years. Retaining many original features It was sympathetically renovated between 1998 and 2002. Formerly a stable building belonging to the medeival hall house by the name of the Old Radnor Arms, the barn dates from the mid 18th century, it has a stone roof, and an octagonal mullioned windows.

Situated on the western outskirts of Talgarth, the barn, not so long ago, was an overnight resting place for stallions traveling to stud on the Great Western Railway. The railway has now gone but the small market town of Talgarth nestles peacefully in the foot hills of the Black Mountains. A geographical gateway, Talgarth is an ideal base to explore both the Black Mountains and the Brecon Beacons National Park ... Opportunities exist for most outdoor activities: walking, climbing, cycling, mountain-biking, pot-holing, horse riding, gliding, hand-gliding, together with the full range of water sports including fishing, kayaking canoeing, sailing and windsurfing in the reservoirs and rivers of the area. The magical and tranquil lake of Llangorse (the largest natural lake in Wales) lies three miles to the west. The river Wye is only three miles to the east at Glassbury while the river Usk lies six miles to the west at Brecon.

Review by Paul Miles

"Apple and plum trees, borders of lavender and roses: this B&B in the heart of Talgarth is set in a third of an acre of land that cleverly screens a car park that was once the train station yard, where coal was stored for steam trains. Good for anyone with mobility problems or those who want an easy-to-find B&B and plan to get out and keep busy all day."
