The centre is excellent for short hill walking routes, or just relaxing and taking in the views. The car park at £2.50p is a bit overpriced for where it is, (£1 would be far more realistic); then if you eat in their cafe the food...More

Had a beautiful meal in the restaurant, very good value for money. Then we took the dog for a walk on the Brecon Beacons, has to be my favourite place to visit. Outstanding views. Truly wonderful.

Now known​ as The Beacons View Cafè. What a difference, the café has come on in leaps and bounds over the last few months with superior food from healthy main meals to wonderful cakes and pastries, unlike the stodge that was served before.

Is this a good point to start walks from? Ideally we would like a 2 to 3hour route that takes in the best views/sights in the park. Any suggestions welcomed.
