The Brecon Beacons National Park contains some of the UK's most stunning backdrops for walking, cycling and outdoor activities. Graced with great food and cosy pubs to just sit back and unwind.
The nearby historic market towns of Hay-On-Wye, Brecon, Talgarth and Crickhowell offer ample chance for exploring with independent and boutique shops; theatre; cinema; sports; pubs; bars and eating establishments.
The area is home to some fine agricultural land and as a result there is a range of excellent local produce and some fantastic restaurants. Of particular note are the Griffin Inn, Felinfach; the Three Horseshoes, Groessfordd; the Gliffaes county house near Crickhowell; and the Walnut Tree Inn, Abergavenny. Which have earned the area a couple of spots in the Times 50 best places to eat in the Countryside. There are also farm shops and farmers markets with the Welsh Venison centre in near-by Bwlch being a favourite.
There is plenty to do all year round but the area really comes to life between May and September with the Hay Literature Festival, Brecon Jazz Festival, the Greenman Festival and the Royal Welsh Show (one of the best agricultural shows in the world).
Llangorse is a short drive from Brecon, Crickhowell and Hay-On-Wye making it an excellent base to explore the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains. However, Llangorse is in its own right a great place to visit with watersports on the lake, the largest natural lake in South Wales; a near-by rope, activites and riding centre; two village pubs (four in the summer) and some great walks and cycle rides.
