It is ideally situated to explore the Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains.There are some excellent walks that can be done from Beacons Rest. These start with a lovely riverside path which leads to the town of Brecon. My favourite was the ascent of Pen y Crug. The view from the summit of Brecon and the Pen y Fan range with half a dozen red kites and a couple of buzzards soaring overhead was marvellous. A walk description is in the apartment, although this can be considerably shortened by doing the walk direct from Brecon. Beacons Rest is very well equipped and sunbathing on the balcony, even in September, with the beautiful views and sightings of rabbits, squirrels, red kites, buzzards and ravens was very relaxing. The owners were most welcoming and presented me with a delicious loaf of newly baked bread on my arrival. The narrow access road is rarely a problem, because very little traffic uses it. Provisions can be obtained from Morrisons or the Cooperative in Brecon. I enjoyed my holiday at Beacons Rest so much, that I have already booked for September 2019!
