You can get out into the countryside by avoiding roads entirely so it is great for walking, safe cycling and boating.

The Powys/Brecon Beacons region

Boots and Bikes are both very welcome here. With old tram roads, canal tow paths and mountain trails there is something for all abilities to get out and discover the lush Welsh countryside.

Dragonfly Cottage is in the central area of the park so a great base to access the four main regions – the Black Mountain West, Fforest Fawr (Great Forest), the Brecon Beacons in the centre, and the Black Mountains East.

The landscape is varied from the rugged mountain peaks to grassy moorland with grazing Welsh mountain ponies, to forestry plantations, and farmland in the valleys. There are many remote reservoirs, waterfalls and caves.

There are lots of historical sites to discover. Burial cairns from the Bronze age can be found on hills in the west. There are over twenty Iron Age hill-forts and numerous castles from the Norman Conquest around the park.
