Travelling to the Brecon Beacons for early May bank holiday. This year the bank holiday has moved from Monday 4th May to Friday 8th May in recognition of the 75th anniversary of VE Day. This will be Mary's third visit with the group to the hostel and she has planned a memorable holiday in the National Park. Apart from the walking trails, there is the option of canal boat rides, mountain biking, an adventure farm and riding centre and the nearby Storey Arms outdoor activity centre. Friday: On our first full day we will take in some of the Brecon peaks including Pen y Fan, the highest peak in the National Park. This 10 mile walk starts from the hostel. Saturday: Will lead another 12 or so mile walk, there are several routes from the visitor centre at Libanus ranging from 4 miles up to 14. Option to hire bikes for Talybont reservoir ride or horse riding at Cantraf stables (those interested to arrange direct). Sunday: After check-out we could explore the town of Brecon and its cathedral or drive 30 minutes away to the historic town of Hay-on-Wye.
