On a leisurely stroll through the woods, you can absorb the calming influence and listen to the gentle running water of the river Ennig. You will find a variety of wildlife, including otters, badgers and birds. Look out for our very own pair of nesting red kites. At your desination, you can marvel at the forty foot waterfall. Dip your toes in and cool off, shut your eyes and let the world and its troubles pass you by.

Follow the river Ennig in to Talgarth and you will find the recently refurbished Talgarth Mill href="http://www.talgarthmill.com/">Talgarth Mill

For those of you who prefer to take life a little easier, perhaps a visit to Offa's Dyke or one of the many castles of Mid Wales and the marches. The abbey's at Llanthony Llanthony and Tintern are mystical places and are well worth a visit. If you are interested in a more recent history, then why not visit the industrial towns of Merthyr Tydfil and Blaenavon. The latter, awarded World Heritage Status in 2001, offers you the opportunity to experience the working and living conditions that people had to endure at the turn of 20th Century. In late 2008, BBC Wales commissioned the second of their fly on the wall series Coal House, following three families sent back to 1944. They have to cope with the living, working and social conditions during the Second World War. Compulsive viewing again! In need of some compulsive listening? Stephen sings with the Blaenavon Male Voice Choir.Why not accompany him to one of their rehearsals on Tuesday or Thursday evenings from 7.30-9.30pm and experience the real welcome in the hillside for yourself.

What ever your requirements, we are able to cater for and offer a full range of organized activity and sight seeing breaks. Castle and choir tours are our specialty.
