The Powys region

Carno is in the centre of the Brecon Beacons National Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty and now given International Status as a Dark Skies Park! and a Geo Park! Truely beautiful!.

It offers miles of open mountain landscape to be walked and explored on foot and bicycle. It has the highest mountain in Souther Britain and several other peaks that challenge the most demanding, descriminating walkers and explorers!

Our climate is very variable from pouring rain to warm, sunny days to snow & ice.

Carno is about 800 to 900 feet above sea level this means there can be a temperature difference from Cardiff to here of about 3 to 5 degrees.

We can experience the whole of the British climate in one day so people need to be prepared.

Generally we have warm SW winds & pleasant days but one must be prepared for a wide variety of weather as this is the first mountain range these winds hit.


Brecon is an old historic Norman/ Georgian Market Town of about 29,000 population with strong Farming traditions. There are remains of a Roman Fort outside the west side of the Town as it was on the route from the Roman Gold Mines to Caerleon near Newport that transported the Gold to Rome near the end of the Roman Empire.

The Town still has many of its narrow,historic streets and Georgian buildings.

It is developing a strong Art Trail & Food Week as well as hosting the popular Jazz Festival ( August) and increasingly popular Baroque Music Festival (end of October)

Brecon is also close to Crickhowell, Hay & Abergavenny, delightful towns with Art & Walking, Book, the Greenman Festivals and Farmers markets.

There are numerous Castles in the area, Caerphilly, Raglan, Cardiff and my favourite Carreg Kennen castle near Llandeilo.

The National Show Caves of Wales are close by with their fantastic stalagtites & stalagmites plus many, many more activities within the National Park for people of all ages & interests.

My favourite is to go out onto our large field & Star Gaze! We are part of the 'Dark Skies' areas of Britian & we do have a small Telescope for guests to borrow!

"Wonderful family holiday with our dog"

We spent great time in Wales at the Carno Farm. Our cottage was comfortable, nice decorated, with all the necessary and very, very clean. June provided us with many tips about the surroundings. Our dog had a garden just for herself and we made good walks in the surroundings. There were not a lot of tourists, so our dog could run free.

We are delighted that you had a good time staying with us. It was a great pleasure meeting you & your pet and may be we will be lucky & see you here at Carno again one day. All the best. Sincerely June, Bob & family

"Beautiful accommodation, wonderful attention, in a super location..."

Despite the week of heavy rain, we had the most comfortable stays - courtesy of Bob and June - at this terrific spot. We were down for the Hay Festival but there is just so much to see and enjoy in the area - or simply relax!! Our visit coincided with the Jubilee Weekend and it was special that we were invited to a bonfire party with Bob and June's family and friends. The swimming pool is a really good size with a lovely, warm Jacuzzi - our grandsons really enjoyed that (as did we!) At the last minute, our youngest son came for the weekend and it was so nice that June invited him to put his tent up in the garden to be close to us - despite there being a site close by. Really thoughtful. Highly recommended. Many thanks. Des Brady

We are delighted that despite the weather you enjoyed your stay here in Carno.It is amazing that there is so much to do & see regardless of the weather & the Hay Festival itself is quite something. Thank you so much for coming to us & we hope that one day we may have the pleasure of seeing you here again. Every good wish to you & your family. June & Bob

"Friendly, clean, lovely location, freedom for small children."

Very nice place to stay. Hosts welcoming and accommodating. Good place for children - swimming pool, lots of freedom to roam, slide and swings. Everything you need, and a lovely, friendly atmosphere.

It gave us great pleasure seeing you and your children enjoying yourselves here. It makes everything worthwhile when our guests tell us they enjoyed their stay with us. Many thanks for taking the time to post this review. We really appreciate your kindness. Every good wish for a very happy year ahead & hope we may see you again in the future. Many thanks. June & Bob
