The Brecon Beacons

The Brecon Beacons and the Black Mountains provide fun and entertainment for all. All kinds of local activity can be arranged, for any age and ability.

The scenery of the Brecon Beacons is beautiful and diverse – rolling countryside and valleys, wide open spaces to the wild beauty of the waterfalls and caves. The National Park has its own history and heritage, and its own cuisine, traditions, myths and culture for you to explore during your stay at Felin Newydd.

The small, ancient market town of Talgarth makes an excellent gateway to the Black Mountains for hill walking or mountain biking. Close by you will find two nature reserves, Park Wood and Pwll-y-Wrach

There are a huge number of things going on in the National Park throughout the year, including the internationally known Brecon Jazz and Hay Literature Festival.
