Two rural villages offering an intimate experience of the best of rural Brecon Beacons.
The village of Llangorse on the shores of Llangorse Lake is at the core of this delightful locale with Bwlch 8 miles away acting as the gateway. These two villages, along with the many hamlets scattered around the lake have charm and character in abundance.
