We are in the Brecon Beacons National Park - an area of outstanding Natural Beauty. However you could easily visit on a Brecon Beacons Holiday and miss out on all the wonderful scenery and walks in this area.

On our rather tongue-in-cheek dog website
(written by Jack the Dog) there are numerous dog walks with directions, distances, photos etc. These are suitable for every walker, with or without dogs.

Here are some walks near our Brecon Beacons Hotel, Craig y Nos Castle:

Henrydd Waterfalls
(5 minutes or so from Castle); steep path down, bring good walking boots.

The Brecon Beacons Mountain Centre
at Libanus (about half an hour from the Castle). Lovely views all around, including over Brecon. No climbing as you drive to the top.

The Lady of the Lake
(ten minutes drive from Castle). The Lake of Arthurian Legend. Read all about this hidden lake and its past.

Penwyllt railray tracks
(five minutes from Castle). Either walk along in one direction or back again, or do a circular walk via the Caving Club.

Nice two hour local circular walk around Usk Reservoir
(25 minutes from Castle).

Ystradfelte Waterfalls
(25 minutes from Castle).

Here are some walks a little further away, outside the Brecon Beacons National Park but within an hour's drive:

Oxwich Bay - beautiful long sandy beach with some more sheltered walks through the dunes if it is a windy day.

Rhossilli Bay - the longest bay on the Gower and a good two hours to walk from one end to the other. Popular with surfers.

Elan Village Reservoirs - some beautiful scenic driving and loads of places where you can stop off for a walk around one of the reservoirs or huge dams. See also Llynn Brianne Reservoir and walks.

A little north of Brecon there is a scenic drive to Talybont on Usk Reservoir which also has some nice level walks over the dam, down one side of the reservoir.

South West there is Laugharne Castle and the Dylan Thomas coastal walk.
