The Hay Barn

Conveniently located in the charming market town of Talgarth, The Haybarn is one of three self-catering properties at Trefecca Farm, offering delightful accommodation for up to six guests, the perfect base for exploring the Black Mountains and the whole of the Brecon Beacons.

The Hay Barn offers the perfect mix of traditional comforts and contemporary styling. Original oak beams and modern oak style flooring create a warm and cosy atmosphere, with all modern conveniences to hand. Upstairs, there is one double room and one twin room, and there is also a sofa bed downstairs. The bright, contemporary bathroom features a luxurious corner bath and a shower.

Downstairs, the stylish kitchen/diner offers plenty of space for guests to relax and enjoy mealtimes together. The kitchen offers a cooker, microwave, fridge, freezer and dishwasher, as well as a range of kitchen utensils, crockery and cutlery. In the lounge, there is a TV with Freeview available.

Guests are welcome to say hello to the small flock of Welsh sheep, which are occasionally housed close to the farmyard.

Talgarth itself is a pretty market town, surrounded on all sides by the stunning landscapes of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Just a short distance away are two very special nature reserves, Park Wood and Pwll-y-Wrach. The ancient woodlands of these reserves are home to many species of birds, including rare redstarts and pied flycatchers. Also within walking distance of Talgarth are Talgarth Mill and Bronllys Castle. The mill has recently been brought back to full working order, and now houses a riverside cafe and a small gift shop. Bronllys Castle is an imposing stone keep, with incredible views over Talgarth and the surrounding hills.

For hill-climbers and hikers, the Brecon Beacons offers so many options, with trails suitable for all experience levels. The highest peak in the Brecon Beacons range is Pen-y-Fan, which rises to 886 metres. There are several routes up Pen y Fan, ranging in difficulty from fairly moderate to a more challenging trail for experienced hill walkers. Whichever route you decide upon, the summit will reward your efforts with breathtaking views across miles of wild, unspoiled terrain.

For visitors looking for a more leisurely stay, there are plenty of places to visit within the National Park. Market towns like Brecon and Abergavenny have plenty of independent shops and boutiques, as well as lots of places to stop for a bite to eat. History lovers will find many treasures to explore, including Tretower Castle, Llanthony Priory and the standing stone of Maen Llia, whilst for nature lovers, the stunning waterfalls of Sgwd yr Eira reward those who trek down to see them.

For guests who want to dine out during their stay, there are plenty of excellent restaurants nearby. The Felin Fach Griffin is a super gastropub, offering unbeatable modern cuisine using quality meat and produce from local suppliers, and both the Red Lion at Llangorse and the Black Cock Inn at Llanfihangel Tal-y-Llyn offer traditional pub menus with a warm Welsh welcome.
