New Inn Bunkhouse

Good food and stunning scenery.

The owners of the New Inn Bunkhouse started out as farmers of rare breed pigs. They’ve obviously been successful as their operation expanded to include a butcher’s selling their own fabulous produce, a converted mill turned into a B&B and now The New Inn on the River Wye  in Mid Wales. The New Inn offers drinks and food and the butcher’s shop is on the site too.

Tucked around the back is the bunkhouse. It sleep 10 in two rooms. There’s drying facilities and toilet and shower, but no self catering. To be honest, New Inn is all about the food anyway – so why not pop in there and feats on the local provender.  They pride themselves on the hand-made artisan-type stuff; 60 different flavors of sausages, using only local in-season ingredients, real alcohol and natural skins, dry cured bacon and so on.

I’m sure you don’t need the landscape and countryside of Mid-Wales selling to you. The mainstream seem to have forgotten about it, so we connoisseurs get it to ourselves, shared only with the locals. Last time I was there we marvelled in its peace and quiet, were awestruck by the red kites and the craggy scenery. Excellent.
