The Best Hotels for Hiking
For the best hiking trails, stay in a hotel or family-run bed and breakfast near Brecon Beacons National Park. Climb Brecon Beacons during the day, or hike part of the 177-mile Offa’s Dyke Path National Trail, and spend the evening relaxing with wine under a clear, star-filled sky.
For a truly opulent visit, stay in a country lodge in the heart of the park, within walking distance of the stunning Waterfall Country. There are many hiking trails to explore here, many of which are also suitable if travelling with the whole family.
