Events and trips to do and see during your stay with us.

The Brecon Beacons National Park has a website with listings and events you may find useful during your stay. In the cottages you will find some ideas about how to make the most of the bus,  and planning car free day trips for all the family.

A brief list of places of interest to all ages.

  • On a rainy day younger children (under 11 years) will love the Playbarn at Brynich, there is also a cafe to keep parents amused!
  • For steam lovers try Brecon Mountain Railway near Merthyr Tydfil offers a lovely day out for all with all weather observation caoches, beautiful views across the Beacons and Taf Fechan resevoir.  There is a half-way stop with cafe, play area and time to ramble by the water.
  • Brecon offers two museums; The Regimental Museum of the Royal Welsh (Brecon) which includes, amongst other brilliant displays the story of the Zulu Wars and the Brecknock Museum and Art Gallery.  This is one of the finest and liveliest small museums in Wales.  First established in 1928 by the Brecknock Society, it occupies an historic building at the heart of the town.  The Museum offers fascinating glimpses of the past and has an exhibition programme that is exciting, varied and strongly features the work of contemporary artists living and working in Wales. Unfortunately this museum is closed for restoration at the moment.
  • The Big Pit offers an insight into Wales’ industrial past. Big Pit is a real coal mine and one of Britain’s leading mining museums with underground tours to give a real feel of how it must have felt to be a collier, pit head baths and exhibitions –  all our guests that have visited  said it was a fantastic, exciting  day out.
  • Gardens – two of the best in Wales are on our doorstep.  Aberglasney Gardens ‘A garden lost in time’ this is the house and garden featured on television that have been lovingly restored and now offer a glorious day out.  The National Botanic Garden of Wales, on the other hand, is a purpose built garden (apart from the restored double walled garden) with an inspiring dome in the grounds in another Carmarthenshire mansion. Both gardens have cafes with tasty food and lovely gift shops.
