The Powys region

The Brecon Beacons National Park is a beautiful area with dramatic scenery, abundant wildlife and a fascinating past. It is a landscape of contrasts with wild open moorland and hidden waterfalls, windswept mountains and sheltered valleys, bustling mountains and isolated farmsteads. In this rural area farming dominates the landscape and Welsh cultural traditions are strong. This agricultural landscape is rich in wildlife habitats with a wonderful variety of plans and animals both common and internationally rare. There is a powerful sense of history in the legacy of ancient monuments and buildings telling the story of the people who have lived and worked here during the last five thousand years.

The designation of the Brecon Beacons as a National Park in 1957 recognised the outstanding qualities of the landscape.


Penstar is ideally located to accommodate groups requiring a wide range of activities without having to travel too far each day. Pen-Y-Fan (886m) and Corn Du (873m) are the highest summits in the National Park and are directly accessible from Penstar.

Craig Cerrig-gleisiad National Nature Reserve is easily reached by following the Taff Trail and is a good example of Old Red Sandstone escarpment. There are glacial features such as moraines and scree.

Brecon is easily reached by car or on foot via the Taff trail.

Climbing, pony trekking and caving are but a few of the outdoor activities available in the area.
