Nearby68 Degrees West is right next door to Cradoc's championship golf course (01874 623658; regularly rated as one of the top 30 courses in Wales) and it's less than 50 minutes to Ryder Cup host Celtic Manor (01633 413000). Cycling and mountain biking are hugely popular in the area, with a fantastic route along the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal towpath for those sticking to the flat. Brecon also marks the start of the Taff Trail which is a popular walking and cycle path that runs for 55 miles (89 km) to Cardiff Bay. For history, the crumbling clifftop castle of Carreg Cennen (01558 822291) at Trapp is certainly worth a visit, then there's Crickhowell Castle and magnificent Cyfarthfa Castle (01685 727371) too. The Brecon Beacons is a perfect place for horse lovers: There are over 600 miles of bridle paths and tracks. You can ride all day, sharing the views with the soaring buzzards – try Ellsemere Riding Centre (01874 658252) or, for something shorter, visit family-friendly Cantref Adventure Farm (01874 665223), where there's an activity centre with farm animals, an indoor play area, as well as horse and pony riding trips.
Food & DrinkFor the nearest catering, neighbouring Cradoc Golf Club (01874 623658) has a bar and serves food and drink. As for local pubs, the grand Castle of Brecon Hotel (01874 624611) serves fancy food in an even fancier setting, while family-run HILLS Brecon (01874 611714) takes the opposite route, serving full-on, American-style burgers – but in a modern setting and with local producers keeping things thoroughly British. The Brecon Tap (01874 623888), right in the centre of the town, is also a good lounge-bar-restaurant-style spot. Outside of Brecon, The Felin Fach Griffin (01874 620111) is a great country pub choice.
