Hill Walking

From the Top Floor @ Cantref you can walk the peaks of the Brecon Beacons including Pen y Fan and Crybin.  Or travel a little further toward the Black Mountains.  To add to that we have the smaller Pen y Crug Hill Fort walk, which can be accessed from the town and has great view over Brecon.  There are also shorter walks available from the accommodation, details of these are provided in the in the information room.

Mountain Biking

With storage for Bikes available on site you can bring your bikes to stay with you. Whether you are an adrenaline junky or just enjoy casual riding the hills are in abundance or the canal is only a few miles away where you can enjoy more miles of flat riding.  However it is impossible to avoid hills altogether in the Brecon Beacons! Bike Park Wales is just 35 minutes away.
