The ideal base for exploring and discovering the heartland of Wales

The Brecon Beacons are home to the highest mountains in southern Britain, which are more commonly known as the Black Mountain Range, Fforest Fawr and Black Mountains. At their heart is Wales’ largest expanse of open hill common, about 20 miles across.

To the south, limestone pavements catch the light on half-sunny, half-cloudy days, while the west is a region of tilted rock, waterfalls and caves of such geological interest that in 2005 it was designated a Unesco Geopark, a first for Wales. Like the rest of the park, the best way to appreciate the Fforest Fawr Geopark is on foot, by bike or on horseback, independently or with an expert guide.

Offa’s Dyke Path is one of twelve designated National Trails and is the only national trail to follow a man-made feature. The Path runs for 177 miles from Sedbury Cliffs on the Severn Estuary near Chepstow to the North Wales resort of Prestatyn on Liverpool Bay. For about 70 miles it follows the course of the Eighth Century Offa’s Dyke earthwork.
