  • Exterior of white painted hostel building

Formerly YHA LLanddeusant, Almond Lodge Brecon Beacons is now an independent hostel

OPENING IN SEPTEMBER.

Formerly YHA Llanddeusant, Almond Lodge Brecon Beacons (Bannau Brycheiniog) is now under private ownership and will continue to offer hostel style accommodation to groups of up to 26. Perfect for clubs, universities, corporate team building and friends & family get-togethers.

This impressive building, once an 18th century inn, retains many of its original features. Situated on the rural western side of the Brecon Beacons and within the Fforest Fawr UNESCO Global Geopark, the village of Llanddeusant lies below the prominent Black Mountain Range.

It is the perfect place for a retreat, for walking, hiking, running, cycling and mountain biking, kayaking or hiking to wild swim spots and exploring this stunningly wild part of the country. Immerse yourself in the landscape with paths that lead to the legendary Llyn y Fan glacial lake and the heights of the Carmarthen Fans, rated amongst the best walk in Wales. Search out ancient sites with circular walking routes that will lead you to an Iron Age fort, Roman camps and standing stones. Visit the Red Kite Centre just a mile away and experience feeding time at 3pm every day from mid-February till the end of December.

Directly on the Cambrian Way and the Beacons Way, Almond Lodge makes a perfect stop-over for groups of walkers and offers beautiful views throughout the year.

Returning to the hostel after the day's adventures you can relax in the grounds and watch the sunset over the mountains. When darkness falls you can feast your eyes on the wonders of the star spangled sky as the hostel is in the Brecon Beacons International Dark Sky Reserve.

For larger groups camping is available in the grounds.
