The Powys/Brecon Beacons region
Situated about an hour north of Cardiff, this mountainous region is largely known for its spectacular natural landscapes. And it's true that the peaks of the Beacons and the Black Mountains have views to take your breath away. Climb Pen-y-Fan, the highest peak in South Wales at 886m/2,907ft, on a clear day and you'll be able to see as far as the Gower Peninsula to the west and across the lush Usk Valley to the English border to the east.
This stunning region also has a rich, eventful history and plenty of fascinating cultural sights to explore. The countryside is dotted with Neolithic standing stones, Iron Age hillforts, Roman roads and Norman castles. The spread of Christianity has left numerous churches, chapels and even a cathedral, while local Celtic saints are commemorated in the picturesque Welsh names of the villages.
The Industrial Revolution dramatically changed the face of the valleys to the south of the Brecon Beacons. Yet the coal seam stopped at Merthyr Tydfil, and in the Beacons themselves rural life continued much as before. Spared the effects of industrialisation, the Brecon Beacons National Park has retained its unspoilt landscapes of pasture, moorland and mountains that are enjoyed by so many visitors today.
More than thirty bookstores, many specializing in out of print or hard to locate titles, lure literary lovers to this market town of 2000, known as the Town of Books. Snugly nestled in the County of Powys at the English border, Hay-on-Wye is most popular during the annual Guardian Hay Festival during the last few weeks of May, when 80,000 visitors descend for readings and seminars. Hay-on-Wye, or Y Gelli as it is in Welsh, also has two Norman castles, a plethora of pubs and a pleasant stream.
There are a host of activities in the local area. The Brecon Beacons National Park and the Wye and Usk Valleys mean that most rural activities are available. These include:
Walking: Fantastic walks in the surrounding Black Mountains are straight from the door, you will be spoilt for choice.
Mountain Biking: The stunning walks surrounding you are also ideal for mountain bike rides, with a route for every level. Bikes can be hired from nearby Hay on Wye.
Horse Riding: Local pony trekking centres nearby or bring your own horses and explore the trails-large paddock available.
For the more adventurous there is plenty to do; rock climbing, abseiling, gorge walking, rafting, canoeing, archery, caving and pot holing etc.
Thankfully there are plenty of options for quieter days, such as exploring nearby Hay on Wye and its countless bookshops, eateries and local stores. Try your hand at the potters wheel at Eastnorpottery.co.uk in Ledbury. Or spend the day in the Cathedral town of Hereford approximately 30 miles away.
