Brecon Beacons YHA

Hostel in Fforest Fawr & Black Mountain

Set in 6 hectares of woodland, 6 miles southwest of Brecon on the A470, this 18th-century farmhouse hostel has had its facilities smartened up but it still has plenty of historic character courtesy of flagstone floors and rough stone walls. The location is ideal for hikers – particularly for ascents of Pen-y-Fan.
