    “Wonderful location on working farm, in a very quiet field far from main roads and with outstanding views of Brecon Beacons and Black Mountains.”

    Excellent hikes can be taken from the site without needing car. Llangorse lake nearby with water activities. Comfortable shepherd's hut and friendly owners.
