New for 2018 is this exploration of a beautiful yet relatively unknown area of central Wales. River valleys like the Usk and the Wye, reservoirs like the Elan  Valley,lakes such as Llangorse, are dominated by mountain peaks which are the highest in southern Britain. Brecon, where we stay, is the former county town of Brecknock, now part of Powys; attractions include a Cathedral, a Regimental Museum and terrific views. Excursions also go west as far as Cardigan Bay to the little resort of Aberaeron with its attractive Georgian buildings and to the hugely popular ‘book town’ of Hay-on-Wye.



Formerly an 11th Century Norman Castle, it became a hotel in 1809. It retains the warmth and character of a coaching inn mixed with the formality of a late Georgian hotel. The mountains dominate the town of Brecon and provide a picturesque backdrop to ballroom, gardens, restaurant and bar. All rooms are individually decorated and offer LCD TVs and tea & coffee making facilities. Most rooms are on the first floor (no lift): a limited number are on the ground floor.
