Location description from owner

The Wales region

The National Park was established in 1957, the last of the three Welsh parks; Snowdonia was first in 1951 with the Pembrokeshire Coast being the other. It covers 519 square miles (1344 km), 332 100 acres stretching from Llandeilo in the west to Hay-on-Wye in the east.(Largest second hand bookshop town in the world) It encompasses the ranges confusingly named the Black Mountains (in the east of the Park, on the border with England) and the Black Mountain (in the west). The area to the west of the Brecon Beacons range is known as Fforest Fawr (Great Forest). There are many waterfalls in the Ystradfellte area and a walk up into the hills to see the glacial lakes is a must!

The western half of the National Park gained European and Global Geopark status in 2005[1]. Fforest Fawr Geopark includes not only the historic extent of Fforest Fawr but also the Black Mountain and much of the central Brecon Beacons together with surrounding lowlands.

Most of the National Park is moorland, with some forestry plantations, and pasture in the valleys. In 1966 the Brecon Beacons Mountain Centre was opened as an interpretive facility to better enable visitors and tourists to understand and enjoy the area.

On 22 May 2005, the first walk to span the entire length of the Brecon Beacons National Park was opened. The 100-mile (160 km) route, called the Beacons Way, runs from the foot of Ysgyryd Fawr east of Abergavenny, through Crickhowell and ends in the village of Bethlehem, Carmarthenshire.

For those looking for a more gentle stroll there is the charming tow path along the Monmouthshire & Brecon Canal with it's many pubs to be visited along the way!
Over twenty hill-forts were established in the area during the Iron Age. The largest, and indeed the largest in south Wales, were the pair of forts atop Y Garn Goch near Bethlehem - Y Gaer Fawr and Y Gaer Fach - literally 'the big fort' and 'the little fort'. The forts were once thought to be trading and political centres.

When the Romans came to Wales in 43AD, they stationed more than 600 soldiers in the area. Y Gaer, near the town of Brecon was their main base. During the Norman Conquest many castles were erected throughout the park. One of the most famous is Carreg Cennen Castle but there are many more



Brecon

Activities in the Park include walking, cycling, mountain biking, horse riding, as well as sailing, windsurfing, canoeing and fishing its rivers and reservoirs, rock climbing, hang-gliding, caravanning, camping and caving. The Taff Trail also passes through the Beacons on its way from Brecon to Cardiff.


Sgwd yr Eira, on the Afon Hepste near YstradfellteThe Park is known for its waterfalls, including the 27-metre Henrhyd Waterfall and the falls at Ystradfellte, and its caves, such as Ogof Ffynnon Ddu.


A Welsh mountain ponyWelsh mountain ponies graze wild within the Park, as do many Welsh mountain sheep.

There are numerous sites of interest and fun things to do for all the family as well as for those with particular interests such as history, gardening, steam railways, the big caves of Dan yr Ogof, canals and bird watching. There are a range of different licensed activity providers in the area who can be booked for an exhilarating day in or on the water, on horseback, on mountain bikes or on a rock face! -
