Llanthony priory is great. Its down a 6 mile country lane from Llanvihangel crucorney past the Skirrid Inn. The country lane can be a bit of a killer but there are lots of passing points. The ruin of the priory is great. It as a...More

Can't keep away from this place. Relaxing atmosphere in a stunning location. Lovely dark skies to sit and just look up at the stars while enjoying the peace and quiet.

We attended a family wedding, and what a stunning backdrop for some of the wedding photos. The cellar bar was fantastic as was the service and the selection of beers.

We called in here with family while staying in the area. It is super, we got a beer and sat in the ruins on a lovely June day. Can’t comment on the food as we didn’t eat but the ruins make a lovely beer garden....More

Easy access with a large car park immediately adjacent to the site. Obviously it is now largely a ruin but it is easy to imagine the full structure in its day. Quiet and peaceful on a sunny May day outside school holiday period with just...More

Stayed overnight whilst trekking the southern section of Offa's Dyke. Quite a climb up and down from Hatterall Ridge, but well worth it. It is also accessible by road from valley below. No phone signal, no internet and no TVs, so the perfect place to...More

Would never of thought to look into the depths of the brecons for a place like this but was lovely. Takes a while to get there as you'll be driving at about 5mph down a mountain road but well worth it. If we knew there...More

We were staying close by and stopped here out of interest. A beautiful and tranquil place although very popular, the grand ruins sit in the valley and tucked in amongst them is a quirky hotel that surprisingly doesn't look out of place. We tried a...More

A beautiful place, quite wonderful. However the idea that you have to leave a dog outside hooked up to a wall is stupid, unfriendly and at odds with most pubs, cafes and shops in rural areas. Dogs are part of the family . Ours are...More

Two years ago there was a summer-only service from Hay-on-Wye, called the Offa's Dyke Flier. I found this in the online Herefordshire bus timetable. The outward and return route are both scenic. I don't know if the service... More
