There is so much to see and do in the Brecon Beacons and the Black Mountains, with a wide variety of attractions to suit all ages.
With a rich and complex past, the region is home to many historical attractions, including Prehistoric and Roman monuments, beautiful medieval castles and industrial heritage sites.
There’s plenty to see and do in the idyllic market towns and quaint villages sprinkled throughout the area. Visit Hay-on-Wye to browse famous bookshops, Abergavenny to sample delicious food markets, and quaint Crickhowell to shop the town’s award-winning high street.
The national park’s varied landscape is stuffed with stunning natural attractions to explore, from beautiful show caves and spectacular hills and mountains to glistening rivers, lakes and waterfalls. There’s also an abundance of leafy parks, gardens and nature reserves which are beautiful to visit in all seasons.

We are still unsure as to when we can re-open. I think it will be around the 24th May.
Gliffaes will not be open for outdoor dining only – I am afraid the numbers don’t stack up for us.
Mark Drakeford, The Welsh First Minister has given no definitive date for the opening of indoor hospitality in Wales.
This matter is further confused by the local elections on the 6th May. If Labour is returned to power he tells us that he will be minded to consider the opening of indoor hospitality on the 17th May and I guess he will give us about a week’s notice taking us to the 24th May.
Online booking is available and reception will be staffed from 9am to midday from Monday to Saturday, so please do call us.
Thank you for all your support and we hope to see you in May and beyond.
James & Susie Suter and all the team at Gliffaes.
