The Powys/Brecon Beacons 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!
