The Brecon Beacons has many walks to offer, and the castle makes an ideal base to explore some of the best. These are a few that are popular with our past residents.
Waterfalls at Ystradfellte
These spectacular waterfalls are a favourite with guests. There are several trails to choose from with a range of distances and difficulty, suiting a casual walk or more serious hike.
