"There's something in the atmosphere that we find very relaxing and peaceful," says June. "The quality of the air here is beautiful, and the scenery is magnificent." This is a great, family-friendly base for exploring the national park – if you’ve never been to the Brecon Beacons, you’d be hard pressed to find a better spot as an introduction to the area."

"This is the perfect place to get away from it all. Come and lollop by the pond watching the newts or take up residence in the hide in Cwmbiga’s own wetlands and twitch to your hearts content. Walk or cycle or ride... but don't come here expecting wifi or mobile signal or to be able to pop out for a latte. It is seriously remote and gorgeously so."
