Stargazing

The Brecon Beacons National Park has become the fifth destination in the world (and Wales' first) to be granted International Dark Sky Reserve status.

This means it's fantastic for stargazing!

We think that the following cottages are exceptional - and some of them even have their own telescopes. If you're keen to use the telescope, make sure you tell us when you book or before you arrive.

Happy stargazing!
