Local Attractions

*  The vast Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains National Parks enjoy a variety of dramatic landscapes with an exciting blend of local flora and fauna. While based at Llwyn-y-fron, guests can maximise on some of the remotest and least visited countryside in the British Isles. The rural areas have changed little over the years, making it easy to understand why writers, poets and artists have long found inspiration here.

*  There is something for everyone – from dramatic castles, glacial showcaves, museums, ancient hill forts, country fairs, festivals, remote pubs, excellent restaurants, a welcoming and friendly community and just about every outdoor pursuit imaginable.

*  The historical and cultural diversity of the area is extremely exciting. The options range from landmarks of the Industrial Revolution (including Big Pit where you can explore a coal mine guided by miners) to the world famous Brecon Jazz and Hay Literature Festivals.

*  Activities include – climbing, abseiling, hiking, cliff scrambling, valley walks, mountain biking, canal cycling, narrow boats, sailing, swimming, clay shooting, open mountain climbing, high wire and dry wall climbing, archery, caving, golf, land carting, kayaking, canoeing, white water rafting, bird watching, farm visits, horse riding, nature excursions, the Brecon Mountain Railway and a variety of children’s activities.
