LEISURELY 

The Brecon Beacons have been awarded dark sky status. With open spaces and more sheep than people the night light contamination is minimal, so star gazing is at it's best!

 Daytime sky's are just as interesting with Talgarth having it's own Gliding Club. With the gliders competing for the sky's with Red kites it's always worth sitting back and just looking up.

There is a wealth of wild life in the area and a trip to the Witches Pool is well worth the effort (can be rather wet at times ) or if you would rather create your own 'wilderness' and award winning Garden Centre is a short drive away

Talgarth Mill is well worth a visit (if it's good enough for HRM Prince Charles-well! ) Renovated to it's former working glory, you can have a guided tour and see our ancestors ground floor for bread.

You may fancy doing a course in painting  or glass blowing all

With 3 BIG national festivals also on our doorstep www.hayfestival.com . Brecon Jazz or The royal Welsh show  there is always lots to do.
