Details

Brecon Beacons National Park lies on the border between Mid Wales and South Wales & covers an area of 520 square miles. The area includes the Fforest Fawr UNESCO Global Geopark and was awarded International Dark Sky Reserve status in 2013.

Stretching from Hay-on-Wye in the east to Llandeilo in the west the National Park includes four ranges of mountains; the Black Mountains, the Central Beacons, Fforest Fawr and the Black Mountain(Mynydd Du).

Brecon Beacons National Park is full of grassy moorlands, heather-clad escarpments and Old Red Sandstone peaks, softened by weather and time.

The area is well known for walking and outdoor activities and boasts some of the finest mountain biking in the UK with a huge network of varied trails that offer something for all. There are over 2000 miles of public footpaths with a range of difficult highland paths or the gentle slopes. The long distance Taff trail or Beacons Way footpaths are ideal way to discover the area if you have a few days to spare.

A holiday would not be complete without good quality food, the Brecon Beacons has a range of wonderful restaurants working on the Slow Food principle using local ingredients and traditional methods of cooking.
