Brecon Beacons in general Reviews
Newest Review: ... However, so long as you wrap up in waterproofs, it just does not matter. There is a certain romance to the rain. The Beacons are a National Park of over 500 square miles. It is stunning. There is green everywhere you can see, just intercepted with the heather that grows on the mountain sides. Also there are sheep all over the place and you will find tufts of wool on the barbed wire fences. My favourite thing about the Brecon Beacons is the tall mountain Pen Y Fan. Be prepared though if you think you can walk it. I set out one day on my own, leaving my parents at the bottom. You can see the top and you get closer and closer and t... more

I grew up near Cardiff and me and the rest of the family would always go to the Brecon Beacons for day trips on bank holidays. From memory, it pretty much rained every time we went.

The Brecon National Park is one of three in Wales the other two being Pembrokeshire Coast and Snowdonia. The park covers some 519 square miles Over one hundred appointed local people who painfully look after the beautiful countryside administer the Brecon National Park and everything associated with it. The park is very much known for its walks and what better place to start than Mountain Centre which is some five miles south west of Brecon. From the Mountain Centre there are some of the best walks in Wales, which include spectacular views from the top of Pen-y-fan (tallest mountain in S.Wales) and Corn Du. The walk very in length but the average ... Read the complete review

If you want to enjoy the outstanding beauty of the Brecon Beacons and have a luxurious base, the Lake Country House Hotel is perfect. Located in the very small village of Llangamach Wells this country house hotel provides sumptuous luxury in outstanding surroundings. Rooms are huge and plush and service couldn't be better - and include complimentary decanter of sherry. Breakfast and dinner are genuinely cordon bleu standard and served leisurely in a spacious dining room. The huge drawing room is beautiful and lavishly furnished in a traditional English country house style. It is like being transported into an Agatha Christie without the drastic ...
