The Powys/Brecon Beacons region
Bwthyn y Bannau adjoins Llety Llyn y Fan and is located on a 100 acre working farm that specialises in organic lamb. Both lodges are set in the courtyard opposite the main farmhouse in the quiet rural village of Crai, set in the heart of the Brecon Beacons. The Westerly view from the ‘lodges’ looks out across the Crai Valley and up towards the spectacular Llyn-y -Fan, a lake of mythical legend as it is said that this is where the ‘Lady of the Lake’ appeared. This is red-kite country and kites can often be seen swooping above the farm.

Cultural highlights include the Brecon Jazz Festival in August, the Hay Festival in late May/early June and the Green Man Festival held near Crickhowell in August. The Royal Welsh Agricultural Show in July and the Winter Fair in December both held in Builth Wells are highlights of the year for the agricultural community. The Rally also passes only a few miles from the cottage.
