Manager recommends

  • From your comfortable Brecon Beacons accommodation, a footpath leads to the glaciated crag and Nature Reserve of Cerrig y Gleisiad. A sharp climb rewards you with a view of glacial moraines and erratic rocks left by the ice. Enjoy the peace and quiet, without the crowds of Pen Y Fan, and enjoy the company of of raven, wheatear and buzzard. A great base for activity breaks in Wales.
