Hotels on the Edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park

It is just a 6 minute drive from the town to reach the lodge and the scenic views of the National Park. Offering self-catering facilities, bike storage and easy access to walks and trails throughout the area you gain access to the best of both worlds: the outdoor activities that South Wales is famous for and the restaurants, bars and attractions of the town itself.
