Brecon Beacons

Llwynywermod lies on the western edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park – 520 miles of moorland, mountains and glacial lakes. Cycle through the countryside or let the dogs off their leads as you wander down the winding paths into the heart of the parkland. The Usk Reservoir is teeming with trout, but be sure to obtain an angling permit before casting a line.

Dolaucothi Gold Mines

If you’re willing to venture a little further afield, the Dolaucothi Gold Mines are a 20-minute drive to the northwest. Built by the Romans around 2,000 years ago, Dolaucothi lay forgotten for centuries. The Victorians revived the site 1,600 years later, only for it to be abandoned again at the start of the First World War. Now, the mines are owned and maintained by the National Trust who offer a range of guided underground tours from spring through to autumn.
