Things to do during your stay

The Bunkhouse is situated in the charming and historic village of Trecastle, 15 to 20 minutes from the county town of Brecon and the same distance from the market and ancient drovers town of Llandovery in the other direction.Being within the Brecon Beacons National Park we benefit from the wonderful scenery and quiet country life associated with the area.

The famous “town of books” Hay-on-Wye is about 45mins away via Brecon.
