For lovers of the great outdoors and adventure enthusiasts alike, few areas of the UK can compete with the Brecon Beacons. This stunning National Park covers some of the most majestic landscapes in Wales, with wild, brooding expanses, imposing peaks and lakes that are steeped in legend. There are all sorts of exciting opportunities to explore, no matter what level of fitness or experience you have, and it’s guaranteed that this magical place will leave a lasting impression on all who visit.
Covering a vast area of 519 square miles, the Brecon Beacons National Park stretches from Llandeilo in the West to Hay-on-Wye in the East and includes the Black Mountain in the West, the Black Mountains in the East, the Central Beacons in the middle, and the ancient Fforest Fawr. With paths and trails for walking, running, horse riding and mountain biking, the Beacons National Park is probably the main reason a great many visitors choose to rent Brecon Beacons self catering cottages for their holidays. The area can bring out a sense of adventure in everyone. Challenge yourself to hike to the top of Pen y Fan, the highest peak in the National Park, or head off to explore some of the lesser trails, such as a walk from the centre of Llandovery along the banks of the Tywi river. With so many trails to choose from, every day can be a new adventure.
Walking and hiking are only part of the picture though, as the Beacons offer so much more than that, for those who want to challenge themselves or experience some high-adrenaline fun. Take to the water in a canoe or kayak, with waters suitable for beginners or those with plenty of experience. Not for the faint-hearted, caving is also a popular experience in the National Park, and again, there are opportunities for those new to caving and those who have already built up a level of skills. Mountain biking is also hugely popular, and once bitten by the mountain biking bug, you’ll be off exploring the peaks and trails, combining hairy descents and challenging forest tracks with more gentle rides alongside rivers or streams. It’s a great sport that combines physical and mental agility with endurance, stamina and tactical decision-making - all whilst zooming through the most incredible landscapes.
For those who want to simply kick back and relax whilst on holiday, there are plenty of Brecon Beacons self catering cottages from which to choose and places to explore, where old traditions and a more simple way of life still hold fast. The cheerful market towns of Brecon and Abergavenny are charming and packed with independent shops and boutiques, as well as fascinating local museums and impressive galleries. With a dozen medieval castles to choose from, history lovers will have plenty to keep them busy. Dinefwr Castle, sitting high above the pretty town of Llandeilo, gives stunning panoramic views across the surrounding countryside, whilst nearby, the imposing ruins of Carreg Cennen Castle, perched on a rocky hillside, talk to visitors of myths and legends from centuries past.
No matter how you choose to spend your time in the Brecon Beacons, there is plenty of choices when it comes to Brecon Beacons holiday cottages. The Brecon Beacons offer a warm Welsh welcome to visitors from far and wide.
