The half moon


Llanthony is one of only a handful of places in the world to have been given the accolade of being a designated dark sky at night location, so if you are a keen photographer or painter Llanthony should be on your lists of places to visit; whether it is to photograph the stunning rugged mountains, the amazing night sky, the historical monuments or the wildlife.

If your interests lie in old churches or ancient monuments there are many to be seen locally. Within 8 miles there are 7 churches/chapels, and the renowned ruins of Llanthony Abbey is just 200 yds across the field. There are also many other historical monuments and special sites of interest locally from old castles to nature reserves. We have more details of some of them in leaflets at your disposal during your stay.

If you just want to sit and enjoy the scenery, you do not have to go anywhere else, but you can go walking, horse riding or driving to find more fantastic scenery. Remember also the scenery changes through the different seasons, or even throughout the day.

If you wish to explore and see the sights even further - Hay on wye is only about 13 miles away, Abergavenny 10 miles, Crickhowell 17 m, Raglan 19m, Brecon 33m and Hereford 24miles.
