The beauty of the Brecon Beacons National Park is something that should be experienced by everyone, at least once in their lifetime, and there is no better way to enjoy this unique landscape than to take a break in one of the many Brecon Beacons hotels.
The part of Wales where Brecon Beacons National Park is situated, includes areas of Merthyr Tydfil, Monmouthshire, Carmarthenshire, Rhondda and Powys. It quite rightly attracts thousands upon thousands of visitors every year, in every season and in every kind of weather. The people of this part of Britain can be rightly proud of its heritage, its history and its scenery.
All year round there is plenty of natural beauty to be enjoyed, but the area is also host to many special events. The Hay Festival in Hay-on-Wye, dubbed by former American president Bill Clinton as “the Woodstock of the mind”, attracts people from all corners of the globe for literary readings, discussions and question and answer sessions, as well as a celebration of locally produced food and drink, music and entertainment for all the family.
The Brecon Jazz Festival has been running annually since 1984 and has attracted all the big names in jazz and music lovers from all around the world. It now has its own fringe festival, with plenty of family entertainment. Not far away, Abergavenny has its own hugely popular food festival, where visitors can try and buy locally produced venison, sausages, Welsh cheese, whisky, beer, cider and liqueurs.
At the rare times when there is no event happening in the Brecon Beacons National Park, guests at luxury hotels can just explore, ramble, breathing in the scenery. Staff at luxury hotels are trained not only in the housekeeping of the establishment, but will have expert advice for visitors who want to explore the area. There is so much to see in the park: the Beacons’ highest peak, Pen Y Fan, waterfalls, lakes, grassland, forests and rivers, all within easy reach of a luxury hotel.
The historic area offers so much for visitors, be it cultural, culinary or sightseeing, that it’s easy to fill up the days. And nothing could be better than to return at the end of a long day of enjoyment to a luxury hotel for relaxation, pampering and a first-class meal. Enjoy the finest food, prepared by highly trained chefs from the best locally sourced ingredients – Welsh lamb, venison, smoked trout, sausages, cheeses. It’s worth visiting this beautiful part of Wales for the food alone.
