Tagarth has reinvented itself , thanks to many local volunteers. The mill is the major attraction. Here you can sit in a modern cafe and look out at the stream running alongside.Wherever possible they use local produce and also sell their lovely bread. There is always a good choice of freshly made cakes , Free-trade coffee or a more substantial... More

What an amazing restoration tale to tell. the mill is amazing, volunteers are friendly and knowledgeable. This attraction is a must place to visit. There's even an opportunity to mill the flour and bake your own bread( bookable of course). The Mill cafe is a delight. Loved the decor, loved the homemade Bara Brith. You can buy delicious home baked... More

How wonderful to see a piece of British history brought back to life, and at £9 for a family of 4, it's worth a visit. We had a guided tour, so found out lots about the place, but you call stroll round at your own pace.It's mainly run by volunteers & featured in a special episode of DIY SOS, which... More

My 2 grandchildren found the mill a little dry, but it was me that wanted to see it. The highlight of their visit was trying to mill flour in the hand mill and shooting (imaginary) crocodiles from the cafe windows. The mill itself is quite small but set in a lovely little village with good community facilities. So a half... More

Interesting water mill, still used to grind flour, with good signage and information. It's run now by volunteers. Pretty and surprisingly extensive terraced garden with views of the (small) river running below houses opposite and, of course, the rotating mill wheel. Nice open cafe with well-prepared food, including bread baked in their wood-fired oven, and interested, informative staff. Food a... More

We visited the Talgarth Mill whilst staying in the area. We found the mill by accident driving through the village even though we had driven there on the express purpose of visiting the Mill. Signposting needs to be upgraded. We had seen the program about the restoration of the mill on TV in Australia, so we knew something of its... More

Make the effort, but not on a Monday they are closed! Amazing, this cafe had lottery assistance to help regenerate the village, why close on a Monday in the summer? The cafe is clean and rustic, coffee is good and we were severed by a lovely young lady. The court yard needs a good clean up and smartening up, the... More

Amazing place to visit. The friendly volunteers welcome visitors and are keen to show off this restored water mill. It's an interesting project, and the story behind it is fascinating. Home making bread kits and flour can be purchased.
