Unforgettable views, valleys, lakes and endless space. The Epynt mountain range, the Abergwesyn Valley, and the Cambrian Mountains - remote, wild and sparsely populated. Combine this landscape with the old spa towns of Builth Wells, Llandrindod Wells and Llanwyrtd Wells and you've got an undiscovered gem of an area. Famous for ambitious conservation projects, extraordinary events - Man vs Horse and Underwater Bog Snorkling and the excellent mountain biking in the area, but there's plenty more to discover in this area North of Brecon.
