The Brecon Beacons National Park
Our golfing breaks are situated on the edge
of the Brecon Beacons National Park which provides an ideal
base from which to explore, arguably, the most beautiful
part of Wales.
The Park was established in 1957, under the National Parks
and Access to the Countryside Act of 1949. It was the tenth
area in England and Wales to be given such status.
The Brecon Beacons National Park covers an area of 1347
sq km (520 sq miles) and contains some of the most spectacular
and distinctive upland formations in southern Britain.
In the centre of the Park are the Brecon Beacons proper.
A distinctive north-facing escarpment rising to 886m (2,906
ft) at Pen y fan, the highest point in southern Britain.
The Brecon Beacons National Park is a place steeped in
history, magnificent in its natural beauty and with many
things to see and do. The total number of visitors to the
Park is 3.6 million per year. Many choose to partake in
activities such as: walking, cycling, mountain biking, horse
riding, climbing, gliding, sailing and windsurfing, canoeing,
bird watching and wildlife. Or simply to enjoy the canal
and riverside walks, site of historical interest, spectacular
viewpoints, lakes and reservoirs and nature reserves.
