Dark Skies

The glories of a pure night sky are a sight that few are privileged to witness. The shining Planets, the shimmering Milky Way, bright shooting stars racing to destruction and the wonder of a sky so full of stars as to seem impossible, are things that can be seen from few places – but one such place is not as far away as you think…..

The Brecon Beacons National Park is one of the darkest areas in Wales to observe the night sky. Awarded the International Dark Sky Association’s coveted “Dark Sky Reserve” award in 2013, the park’s 530 square miles offer a huge array of activities from fine dining to pony trekking, from leisurely hikes to climbing the highest peaks in southern Britain and from lazy picnics to enjoying the crisp night sky.
