Mid Wales & Brecon Beacons

With two National Trails and a National Park, this is fabulous walking and thinking country. In its charming, lively market towns, outdoorsy types rub along with writers and artists and the mood is gently alternative and modestly intellectual. A year-round programme of cultural events including the Hay FestivalHowTheLightGetsIn and Brecon Jazz draws visitors from all over the world.
