A refurbished Mid-Wales drovers inn, which is building a reputation for the quality of its food and hospitality, has achieved four star ratings from both the AA and Visit Wales.
Y Talbot at Tregaron, which is owned by Mick and Nia Taylor and chef Dafydd Watkin, has also been awarded Walkers are Welcome and Cyclists are Welcome status, reflecting the owners’ investment in secure bike storage and a drying room for wet kit.
The characterful inn, which has 13 bedrooms, a 40-cover restaurant, private dining room, function room, a comfortable guest lounge and attractive gardens, has also reached the finals of the National Tourism Awards Wales 2013. Y Talbot is in the running for the Regional Tourism Award and winner will be announced in November.
“Y Talbot is one of those places that has a unique sense of history and place about it,” said co-owner Nia Taylor Nia. “We believed that it had the business potential that justified the major investment that we have made.
Located at the foot of the Cambrian Mountains and within 15 miles of the Ceredigion coastline, the inn is an excellent base for exploring this beautiful and unspoilt area.
