Tucked away in the eastern corner of the Brecon Beacons National Park is the lovely little hamlet of Llanthony. Here you can simply enjoy peace and tranquillity in stunning countryside, admire the gorgeous views and be star struck by the incredible night skies or, if you’re feeling more active go for a walk, give horse riding a go or explore the hills and roads by bike.
Whether you wish to relax or be as active as possible on holiday, any visit to Llanthony must include the famous and very impressive Priory. Built in around 1217, the Priory has become one of the best examples of medieval architecture in Wales and is a definite must-see in this part of the country.
