Spoilt for choice when it comes to days out
Beudy Bach Barn sits near the southern-most edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park. From here popular attractions include the breathtaking Porth-yr-Ogof (or 'gateway to the cave') caves which boasts Wales' largest cave opening and is an excellent place to learn more about caving and perhaps give it a try yourself. Come face to face with over 200 life-sized dinosaur models and visit the gentle giants at the Shire Horse Centre - this really is a must for children. If taking in the views is more your style then Aberdulais Falls are worth a visit. The falls themselves are stunning but they are also self sufficient due to the power generated by the waters energy. Also nearby is Cwm Clydach RSPB reserve - a wonderful place to see all sorts of rare wildlife and the riverside and woodland walks are lovely. Well worth a visit is Penderyn Distillery where visits can visit the distillery and see the bottling process of Penderyn's genuine Welsh Whisky. There is also the fascinating remains at Ynyscedwyn Ironworks at Ystradgynlais - the scent of the great industrial development during the 19th century. Iron was smelted here from as early as 1612 and ceased in 1941 but the soaring arches and preserved machinery still remain.
Ystradgynlais 3 miles, Brecon 20 miles.

The Southern Brecon Beacons are a magical expanse of mountains, lakes and Ystradfellte's waterfall country of caves, rushing rivers and steeply wooded gorges. There's plenty to do here. Discover the mountains by foot, bike (this is the home of the fabulous Bike Park Wales) or even train on the Brecon Mountain Railway. Sample whisky (and gin) to rival even the finest Scotch at Penderyn Distillery, or have a day out at the spectacular caving system and dinosaur attraction at Dan yr Ogof. The acclaimed beaches in the Gower and Carmarthenshire are within an hour of many of the cottages. Read more about Southern Brecon Beacons
