The Harp Inn  

An inn with a View, The Harp is a beautifully renovated fifteenth century village inn enjoying wonderful views of Radnor Forest from its position alongside the famous fifteenth century St. Stephen's church. According to The Campaign for Real Ale it would easily be ranked among the ten most important public houses of historical and archaeological interest in Wales. Situated on the beautiful Mid-Wales border about four miles west of Kington, the start of the Mortimer Trail, and twenty-four miles north of the cathedral city of Hereford, it is a centre for holidays all year round, and ideal for those seeking peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings. Explore Radnor Forest, Offa's Dyke or stroll across the village green to the magnificent church, noted for its huge and primitive font, organ case (the earliest example in Britain) and perpendicular tower. The historic town of Presteigne is seven miles away and fourteen miles away is Hay-on-Wye. Depending when you stay you can visit local sheep dog trials, eisteddfods, trotting races or the Royal Welsh show. The area is also ideal for cyclists and walkers. Although The Harp has been extensively renovated, great care has been taken to retain its original period character; features include the old slate flagged floor and beamed ceilings. The bar and lounge sections contain some lovely antique settles and an unusual reader's chair, and there is an open log fire in winter. Good food and real ale can be enjoyed in the bar or the newly refurbished restaurant, and on the first floor are five comfortable bedrooms (2 doubles, 1 twin, 1 single and 1 family room with a double and twin beds). Prices for bed and breakfast are: double rooms and twin rooms £50 per night, single room £40 per night and family room £85 per night.
