Search availability for Old Radnor Barn Bed & Breakfast and book online
Situated on the outskirts of Talgarth (6.5 miles from Brecon) Powys within the Brecon Beacons National Park, Old Radnor Barn offers charming 4 star Bed & Breakfast accommodation with three bedrooms in a 16th century converted stone barn.
Not so long ago stallions travelling to stud on the Great Western Railway rested in the barn overnight, on their journey through Mid Wales. The railway has gone but the small market town of Talgarth still nestles peacefully in the foot-hills of the Black Mountains.
Set within the Brecon Beacons National park, the area is renowned for its scenic beauty and is an ideal base for activity holidays, including opportunities for walking, climbing, pot-holing, pony trekking, mountain-biking and gliding together with a full range of adventure water sports. In addition, the rivers Wye and Usk boast some of the best trout, salmon and course fishing water in Wales. The magical and tranquil Llangorse Lake lies three miles to the west.
For those of you who prefer to take life at a gentler pace, perhaps a visit to Offas Dyke or one of the many castles of Mid Wales and the borders. If you are interested in a more recent history, then why not visit Merthyr Tydfil or Blaenavon and its recently awarded world heritage status.
We are situated mid-way between the historic cathedral town of Brecon with its new theatre and canal-side attractions and Hay-on-Wye, the border town internationally renowned for its second-hand book shops.
We are delighted to offer ground floor accommodation with level access, suitable for elderly or disabled guests. All our rooms which consist of 1 Family, 1 twin/kingsize and 2 doubles, all have en-suite or private bathrooms.
Full breakfast menu available, including options for vegetarians and people with special diets. Our speciality is our traditional Welsh breakfast. When ever possible we use our home grown/home made produce. Our meats, come from Cashells of Crickhowell and is sourced from local farms.
Evening meals, light suppers and packed lunches are available on request.
We hope that you will enjoy your stay with us.
Children welcome from any age.

“Good location but B&B lacks attention to detail.”
The B&B itself is pretty from the outside but inside it lacks the things that make a B&B special. The shower is an extremely small cubicle which has 2 smashed tiles which look like a jigsaw puzzle & pressure is just adequate -not great for room capacity of 6. There is a n ugly disabled seat in the bathroom yet the room is in the attic. No selection of tea and it would have been nice touch to have provided a Welsh biscuit or similar. Mugs were all stained inside. There was a jug of water which was appreciated.
Breakfast was Ok though veg sausage was burnt but again lacked the small touches that you get when the owners take pride in what they offer & it shows.
