Very few areas of the UK get such dark skies and bright stars as the Brecon Beacons. Indeed, in 2013 the area became the fifth place in the world to be awarded Dark Sky Reserve status. For spectacular views of the Milky Way you can camp on Blaenglyn Farm, in the Tarell Valley. Facilities are basic, but include water and toilets. For more information please contact Mrs Prosser on 01874 625072.
If you’re thinking of taking a trip with a large group take a look at Dan y Gyrn bunkhouse. This wonderfully equipped and modern bunkhouse sleeps up to 15 people, and is the perfect spot for walks, barbeques and watching the world turn.
