Walking - Hafod and Ty Nant Barns are set in glorious countryside.  Some of the best walking country is on the doorstep.  There is an interesting Farm Trail taking in the Hill, the 5 acre Oak Wood and the Dingle with its fast flowing rocky stream.  You are welcome to explore the 240 acres of Garth Farm including the Wildlife Pools and Garth Lake complete with two little rowing boats and two canadian canoes.

 

From the farm you can follow numerous local footpaths and bridleways or you can join Glyndwr's Way National Trail or the challenging 25 mile Sarn Sabrina circular walk taking in the Source of the Severn and the Hafren Forest.  There are, of course, many shorter interesting walks following streams, through woods or to the tops of mountains! 


The Garth Barns Treasure Hunt has been popular with guests this summer!  

Storytelling and singing around the Camp Fire in the orchard is a memorable way to end the day with friends and family.


Indoors - Table Tennis and Pool Table for friendly tournaments!

Sauna for up to 8 and Gym with Sky TV

Big TVs in both Barns with full Sky and BT Sport package.
