Brecon Beacons recommended to tourists
People planning to book accommodation in Wales might wish to visit the Brecon Beacons this summer.
The destination has just been singled out for praise by Charles Starmer-Smith of the Telegraph, who hailed it as a great place to escape the fast pace of city life.
Writing in the newspaper, he noted that the Brecon Beacons also offer a good alternative to the traditional bucket and spade beach holiday.
Mr Starmer-Smith said this is because it has attractions such as traditional market towns, meandering rivers, ancient monuments and beautiful scenery.
He added that the Brecon Beacons would be equally suitable for those who like to be a bit more active during their holidays.
Indeed, he said people who book hotels in the area can indulge in activities such as caving, kayaking and hang gliding, as well as mountain biking and horse riding.
The recommendation comes after tourism analyst John Wakes told
the Western Mail that Wales offers "fantastic" attractions to both
domestic and international leisure travellers.
