When you are planning on going exploring through Wales’s vast countryside national park of Brecon Beacons, you will need to plan ahead for your accommodations. The reason is that during holiday seasons, it can be difficult to find somewhere that you would actually want to stay. And planning ahead of time can only be good for you. You will never hear of anyone telling you that you have been over-prepared.
Hotels and the Easy Life
If you are thinking that you do not want to “rough it” while you are visiting Brecon Beacons National Park, then you should not worry. There are accommodations not too far away from Brecon Beacons, allowing you to have the joys of a restful night sleep while you are able to run around the countryside during the day.
- Glangrwney Court: The price for this hotel is going to be higher than some others nearby, but you are going to also get what you paid for. Glangrwyney Court is a Georgian House that has been renovated to become a mid to high-end hotel lodging, providing comfort and all of the luxuries that you may be looking for. There is central air as well as log fires to keep it warm.
- Rose Cottage: This hotel sits on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Where it is situated gives you views of the Black Mountains as well as Monmouthshire, letting you take in the views of nature without having to get yourself dirty in nature.
- Tara: This is a Bed and Breakfast located at the foot of the Black Mountains. It is very family friendly and their food is especially well-known. Definitely a treat to experience.
If you are looking for more of the natural experience, but not really ready to pitch a tent, then you are going to be best-suited for glamping. Glamping, which is glamour camping, is where you are not sleeping outside, but you are roughing it more than you would if you were to stay in a hotel or a bed and breakfast.
- Pwll Du Adventure Centre: This is a large cabin meant to accommodate a large party or group of people. It is located in Monmouthshire and has been recently renovated to be able to hold larger families comfortably.
- Middle Ninfa Farm Bunkhouse: Located near Abergavenny, the Middle Ninfa Farm Bunkhouse can hold six people at a time, which is great for smaller families. You will also get a lovely view of the mountain landscape.
- YHA Brecon Beacons: This is the traditional European youth hostel which will let you have a bed, a breakfast and no other luxuries. This is an excellent choice if you are travelling alone or looking to meet fellow adventurers. The youth hostel is situated in an old Welsh farmhouse surrounded by 15 acres of woods.
As should be the case in any national park anywhere in the world, you will also have the option to go camping in Brecon Beacons. There are several campsites in the area to choose from.
