Home About the park Location Facilities Local Attractions Prices

Situated in one of the most remote unspoilt areas of outstanding natural beauty the park is an ideal centre for hill walking and exploring the rugged landscape of the Brecon Beacons National Park and yet is still conveniently located for countless other attractions.

The most local attraction is the abundance of wildlife on and around the site, and the Red Kite Feeding Station which is located only 50 metres from the park. The dramatic daily spectacle of flocks in excess of 40 of these fantastic birds diving to the ground for food has lead to the new purpose built hide being used as location for filming of a new documentary, and is an experience which should not be missed.

The mythical sites of Llyn y Fan Fach and Myddfai are within 3 miles and fishing is available at the spectacular Usk Reservoir which is only 5 miles away.

The historic towns of Llandeilo, Llandovery and Brecon are all within very easy reach and provide many points of interest.
