It’s the little treats, like a fresh pot of tea with sandwiches, Welshcakes or scones, jam and cream, that make holidays in the Brecon Beacons really special. Here in the National Park, we have lots of lovely cafés, tea shops and tea rooms. As a bonus, some of them double as galleries and gift shops.
Check out our Cafe guide for 2017:
