Nothing revives the body and soul like spending time in the great outdoors. The clean, fresh, mountain air of ‘The Brecon Beacons’ is within an hour’s drive. Experience the spectacular scenery, historical places and numerous areas of outstanding natural beauty that the South Wales countryside has to offer.

Castles hold a very special place in Welsh history and taking some time out to experience and marvel at their architecture and uniqueness is a fantastic opportunity in itself. The largest castle in Wales, Caerphilly is an inspirational visit and has a series of moats and an amazing leaning tower! You may wish to visit other castles including Cardiff, Chepstow, Caldicot, Raglan and Penhow. There is also a very unusual ‘fairytale castle’ south of Caerphilly. It is in fact a folly, which is called ‘Castle Coch’ – The Red Castle!

If you decide to leave the cosy retreat of The Old Barn Inn, there are many Welsh Heritage Sites, which provide a very special day out. Brochures are available from our reception area or you may wish to log on towww.cadw.wales.gov.uk

Other notable visits are Tintern Abbey, Tretower Court, Caerleon Roman Baths and Amphitheatre, Bleanavon World Heritage Centre, Big Pit National Coal Museum, The St Fagans Welsh Folk Museum, Llantarnum Abbey, Tredegar House, Llancaiach Manor and dozens of great museums providing a fascinating insight into past histories. The major cities, shopping and entertainment centres of Newport and Cardiff Bay are within easy reach.

If you like walking you will love South Wales! From just leisurely strolls along canal banks or more adventurous hikes, the Welsh valleys and mountains are covered in woodland treks that rise and fall providing glorious views. It’s also a photographers or painters paradise! Country Parks, Lakes, Reservoirs, Coastal Paths and Waterfalls make for thrilling and awe-inspiring hiking. In fact ‘The Celtic Trail’ takes you across some of the most diverse and stunning scenery in South Wales – and your never too far away from a local village pub!
