Brecon Bunkhouse can’t wait to share with you the heart and soul of the Brecon Beacons.

“Brecon Bunkhouse is in the heart of the Black Mountains area of the Brecon Beacons National Park in Wales, famous for its wild mountains and rugged terrain. There is fantastic hiking, mountain-biking and horse-riding right from the front door (we also run a horse riding centre), and canoeing, climbing, gorge-walking and high rope activities are nearby. To top it off, there’s a great pub a short walk from the bunkhouse (bring a torch!)”.
