Brecon BeaconsIt's all about the Great Outdoors in the Brecon Beacons National Park, 520 square miles of mountain ranges, caves, lakes, waterfalls and rivers in a glorious part of South Wales. Close to Cardiff, 100 miles from Birmingham, and 3 hours from London, it's also one of the most accessible national parks for many people in the UK – but even so, you'll always be able to find your own piece of heaven. The Beacons Way lets you see the whole of the National Park on a strenuous 95-mile walking route across the park, or there's fantastic mountain-biking, canoeing on the River Wye, wildlife-watching and star-gazing in Wales' first International Dark Sky Reserve. Pen y Fan is the highest mountain in southern Britain – it dominates the landscape for miles around and is a huge draw for walkers (they reckon over a quarter of a million people a year set off to climb it). Meanwhile, towns like Brecon, Abergavenny, Crickhowell and Hay-on-Wye offer more gentle pleasures, from bookshops to barista coffee houses, not to mention a selection of cosy B&Bs, lively pubs and inns, and good-value hotels. Out in the great outdoors it's a different story – the YHA has one of the best-sited (ie – remote) youth hostels in the country, while beautiful holiday cottages nestle in the hills and valleys, providing great bases for anyone wanting to get out and about in the more spectacular parts of the Brecon Beacons.
