Beili Helyg is an 18th century stone built longhouse. The 3 guest rooms are separate from the farm in renovated stone barns; they are individual, en-suite, beautifully spacious and elegantly furnished. From Beili Helyg there are spectacular views in every direction of the open mountainside of the Brecon Beacons National Park. We are in the heart of the countryside, in a very rural and peaceful spot.

We have 16 acres of gardens, woodland and upland meadow which you as guests are welcome to explore. We are in the central section of the Brecon Beacons National Park at the head of the Cwm Cadlan valley, which is renowned for it's ancient landscape, with many prehistoric features - caves, cairns, a stone circle and standing stone. Further afield near Ystradfellte is Sarn Helen the roman road from Neath to Brecon, and large standing stones of Maen Madoc & Maen Llia. For those interested in geology and the landscape this is a rich limestone area with shake holes, swallow holes, waterfalls, limestone pavements, caves and evidence of the Dinas fault.

Indoors we have a guest lounge with log burner and comfy sofas, ideal for relaxing and a dining room with maps on the wall to help you plan your adventures.

This is waterfall country and no visit is complete without seeing at least one waterfall. The nearest is Sgwd yr Eira, the waterfall famous for being able to walk behind it, which is a 30 minute walk from Penderyn. Other outdoor activities include mountain walking and hiking, caving, cycling, sailing, wild swimming, gorge walking, canoeing, climbing, bird watching, horse riding and fishing is available at rivers and reservoirs for coarse, game and wild trout

For walkers and cyclists, there is excellent walking or cycling from the door, the open access land is 5 minutes walk.WE have maps, printed guides and can give you lots of help planning your adventures. We also offer a drop off service for you to walk/navigate back to Beili Helyg, from Pontneddfechan (a waterfall walk); Dolygaer(via Taff Trail); and Neuadd reservoir (over the peaks of Cribyn, Penyfan, and Corn Du).

We have a boot room and drying facilities, secure cycle lock up and can also provide you with a packed lunch and evening meal.

Our home & garden produce is on the menu daily, and we source our ingredients as locally as possible

What photographs can't show is the fresh mountain air, the complete peace & quiet, the uninterrupted long views in all directions, and the complete freedom of being so far away from the madding crowd. With no near neighbours we have a fantastic view of the stars on clear nights.
