Brecon Beacons NP

Last weekend we met up with liv and downy in a village called Talgarth in the Brecon Beacons National Park in Wales. We stayed in a B&B called the Old Radnor Barn - more to come on that later. We had dinner in a nice mexican restaurant nearby and the next day we went Horse riding in the hills. Both Friday and Saturday night we went out and had a pint at a couple of the local pubs. On Friday night we arrived back at our B&B to find the door locked, thats fine we had keys. Ah but no the stupid, stupid owners had dead bolted it from inside because they were sure we were already in bed. 15 minutes later after knocking, trying to break in through the windows and barging the door one of them woke up and let us in.

Saturday night we had probably one of the best meals we have had in the UK. We went to a quaint village called 'Three Cocks' and had dinner at the Old Barn Inn. I had venison, Corinne had chicken wrapped in prosciutto with a stilton cheese filling - delicious. Sunday we left the B&B only to find they had not receiced our deposit cheque or so they said. We ended up going to the bank and filling in fraud forms only to find the mentally deficient people had receivede the cheque and had to send us one back in return. Suffice to say I highly do not recommend the Old Radnor Barn in Talgarth. Sunday we went to some Caves with a long name - check out liv and downy's blog for the name.
We also went to a nice pub for lunch near the caves and had a sunday roast.

You are certainly getting around and making good use of your time in the UK. Photos are great. I checked out the caves on Liv and Downey's blog. Very cool :-)
