Despite its secluded position Priory Mill Farm is just a ten-minute riverside walk from the Georgian town of Brecon with all its amenities including covered farmers’ market, theatre, cinema, museums, leisure centre, pubs and restaurants. The Taff Trail long-distance cycle route is one mile away and the start of the walk up Pen-y-Fan (Southern Britain’s highest mountain) is approximately two miles out of town.
N.B. Beware! some satnavs seem to get it wrong and you end up in Talgarth (which is six miles away!).
