…a peaceful rural haven…
The Brecon Beacons Nation Park dominates south Wales. Pen Y Fan, the highest mountain in south Wales dominates The Beacons. With its dinosaur spine and precipitous pathways, with its links to gruelling SAS training events and its association with stories of tragedy, Pen Y Fan might be a grim neighbour but the paths are good, the views are spectacular and the route is popular. More importantly for us today, it begins at Dan Y Gryn Bunkhouse.
Dan Y Gryn is one of those National Trust Bunkhouses, kept to a high standard and affordable. It has three bedrooms sleeping 15 in total in an arrangement labelled by my children as ‘an upside-down house’ with the living quarters upstairs. From the airy open plan living/dining/kitchen you can fling the french windows open and step out into the garden with views over farmland and thence to Craig Cerrig Gleisiad. Is it just possible to see the Peregrine Falcons nesting there from here?
Walkers are not just treated to the mighty Pen Y Fan routes. Close by you could access the Beacons Way and The Cambrian Way safe in the knowledge that you’ll be returning to a peaceful rural haven and warm comforts.
