Featuring the iconic skyline of Pen y Fan, Corn Du and Cribyn

The Brecon Beacons National Park offers some of the area's most impressive scenery.

Rising 886 metres above sea-level, Pen y Fan is the highest point in southern Britain, offering extensive panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.

Nestled below Pen y Fan is Cwm Llwch, a circular lake. Nearby, Cwm Gwdi was once a Ministry Of Defence live firing range and training camp.

Don't fancy trekking up the mountain? You could explore Cwm Sere instead. It's an impressive glaciated valley with beautiful waterfalls and pools and Pen y Fan peering overhead.
