Local Information

The Castle Hotel has stood in the town of Talgarth since 1721. Once the ancient capital of the Welsh kingdom of Brycheiniog, the town of Talgarth is an historic market town, nestled at the foothills of the beautiful Black Mountains in the Brecon Beacons National Park. The Hotel is named after the nearby Castle at Bronllys which is a 5 minute walk from the hotel.

Eleventh century motte and bailey castle with three floors and great views of the town. The Castle Hotel was named after this nearby castle in 1721.

Llangorse Lake

Llangorse Lake is the largest natural lake in South Wales, and is situated in the Brecon Beacons National Park.

The lake is famous for its coarse fishing (particularly pike) and watersports from canoeing to  sailing. Historically it is the only example of an ancient Crannog building in Wales. Llangorse Lake is also one of the most mentioned sites in Welsh folklore. It is a site of international conservation importance.

Pwll-y-wrach Nature Reserve

This is the Trust's most visited nature reserve and was extended in 2012 to double its original size, with the help of a grant from the Countryside Council for Wales. It is 17.5 hectares of beautiful ancient woodland, which slopes down to the banks of the River Enig. Near the eastern end of the reserve the river plunges over a spectacular waterfall into a dark pool below, known as the "Witches Pool" from which the reserve gets it name. In the past local witches were drowned here!

Talgarth Mill

The historic Talgarth Mill is a thriving community enterprise at the heart of the quaint town of Talgarth in the Brecon Beacons National Park in Mid Wales.  it’s a great place to visit for a morning or afternoon coffee and is only just down the road from Hay on Wye, the famous book town.

Take a guided tour with one of the volunteer guides and hear the full story of the water wheel or have a go at making your own stoneground flour using thei hand-driven mill.

Black Mountains

The Black Mountains spread across Powys and Monmouthshire in Wales, and extended across the England–Wales border into Herefordshire where they formed an integral part of Hadrians wall. They are the easternmost range of the four ranges that make up the Brecon Beacons National Park. The picturesque Grwyne Fawr reservoir sits on the top and the landscape is dotted with ancient burial sites. The mountain is known locally as King Arthurs Table.
