Viewings & Planning

Why come to the Brecon Beacons?
Craig y Nos Castle is within Brecon Beacons National Park - choc-full of unique and unusual things to do, read on for stunning Attractions, remote and hidden, peaceful places to walk and cycle off-road, rugged scenery, tracks and lanes..

For your memorable Escape to the Country, this slide show introduces you to all the exciting things your group can do in this glorious part of Wales.
Dining in a Castle
For groups of 30 plus, we offer a three course Dinner for guests wanting a Dinner B&B stay.

We are a Dog Friendly B&B and welcome walkers, cyclists, dog friendly B&B, paarty groups, clubs etc.
Dog Friendly Lounge with Chesterfields by Fire
By Reception, relax in the Dog Friendly Nicolini lounge after a long walk or day out.

Sit by the fireside, chat among friends. Sink into those leather chesterfield sofas, doze off by the fire, your dogs beside you!
Have a refresher in the Bar
The Patti Bar in the Castle. Also with log burning stove for cool winter evenings.

The Patti Bar is used as a smaller dining room for smaller groups up to 20 guests. Cosy and warm.
Sports Room and Hot Tub
For rainy days, you can keep fit in our Sports Room. Lots of treadmils with a view, exercise bikes, weights equipment.

Also has a hot tub - this needs to be pre-ordered as it is not routinely on due to electric cost.
Walks in woodland behind Castle
No need to take your car. Just walk down the paths behind the castle directly into the neighbouring Country Park.

Though it closes 5 pm, Castle guests can access the Country Park late into the evenings, via the paths from Theatre Gardens.
Off Lead Dog Walks in Country Park
Craig y Nos Country Park has 40 acres of woodland paths and open fields and meadows.

All well fenced in affording lots of opportunity for dogs with good recall to be let off the lead for a jolly good run.

All this, within a few minutes walk from your room.
Climb every Mountain....
Within about 3 miles, park on the Trecastle Road, and explore the Lake up a Mountain.

Park by Bridge, find correct path to Lake as per instructions on our Lady of the Lake page. A climb, a remote lake of Arthurian legend, climb some more for stunning views.

Only attempt this walk in clear weather, otherwise you are up in the clouds. Allow 3 hours plus, good walking boots needed. And good all-weather clothing.
Visit the Local Welsh Show Caves
Just 500 Yards or so north of the Castle, we have the National Showcaves of Wales. Dan yr Ogof Caves. Open in Summer Months.

Well worth a visit and not weather dependent, as you are deep underground in huge caves.
Events - Murder Mystery Dinners
Book a Group or Family Table at one of our Murder Mystery Dinners - with B&B.

Create your own table and see if you can beat the other tables in discovering the murderer.

Murder Mystery Dinners are held once every two months. We also host an annual Murder Mystery Weekend.
Events - Monthly Ghost Hunts
Once a month, mostly in the winter months, we hold a Ghost Hunt. These are run in groups of 15, and couples and individuals can join.

Or you can host your own private ghost tour if there are at least 10 - 15 of you.
