The park is located in mid-Wales in the UK covering 520sq miles. It was established in 1957, under the National Parks and Access to the Countryside Act of 1949.
The Brecon Beacons National Park Authority has been awarded the British Horse Society (BHS) Access Award for the National Park most active in opening up equestrian routes. A perfect walking and riding area with spectacular scenery, wealth beautiful hills and varied wildlife.
Llanthony Priory (25mins) was one of the earliest houses of Augustinian canons to be founded in Britain, and is one of only a handful in Wales. It is chiefly famous today for its wild and beautiful setting, far up the Vale of Ewyas in the Black Mountains. The priory’s church, built between 1180 and 1230, was one of the great medieval buildings of Wales.
Entrance to the remains of the priory is free, and the pub – which is charming in itself – serves excellent refreshments.
Starts at Taf Fechan (50mins). Take a trip on a vintage steam locomotive through beautiful scenery into the Brecon Beacons National Park along the full length of the Taf Fechan Reservoir to Dol-y-Gaer.
