    I fancy a weekend in the Brecon Beacons, having a couple of days “natural” riding and a day at Cwm Carn. Crickhowell looks convenient for one of the rides I’ve lined up for the Black Mountains.

    Any recommendations for good places to stay? Should I be looking at other towns/villages? Somewhere quiet, but with at least one pub and restaurant within walking distance.



    Talybont on Usk always seems popular.

    I haven’t been for 20 years or more, but Talybont was nice back then…

    As above. White Hart is a nice spot.


    Always enjoy a stay at Bear inn for Crickhowell.

    Slightly old fashioned, nice bar – nice to eat in the bar if you can – car parks a jam!

    Dragon inn down the road is nice as well – more contemporary perhaps..

    Book early for both!


    Talabont is definitely a good place to stop.

    As for accommodation neilc1881 who posts on here has two great huts to stay in at Aber Farm, Talybont – one shepherds hut another is the one he posted on here while building it.

    They are book able on Airbnb and are handy for The Gap and other rides.

    Come and stay in our shepherd’s hut or cabin! Free bottle of apple-based post ride beverage quencher for every STWer…

    Mods – am I allowed to do this or does this count as some sort of advert? If I’m not then I am sorry and please delete this.

    Short walk/ride from Talybont. The Star has new owners, but still great beer, good meals.
    The Travellers – great restaurant
    and there should be a bike shop opening soon as well…

    EDIT – Thanks Gowerboy! Beaten to my own race 😉

    The Travellers has a nice self catering apartment as wellewellyn, or at least it did a few years ago.


    we stayed here when we went Dan:
    In Talybont on Usk. clean cheapish and good food. BUT we found both pubs in Talybont a bit shit!

    Thanks all. Will check them out tomorrow. Might be a case of grabbing what’s available; going in a fortnight!

    Cheap and basic, YHA near Talybont. Long walk to a pub but they have a small bar on site.

    Merthyr Premier Inn is another option.


    Llangattock Mountain Bunkhouse, about 1 mile up from Crickhowell is a nice place too.

    Stayed here. We did a great ride from the doorstep and other “classics” were a short drive away. So convenient having a garage to store the bikes.

    “BUT we found both pubs in Talybont a bit shit!”

    In what way?


    as Deadkenny said – the YHA in Talybont is good basic accommodation. They have a small bar and serve evening meals and breakfast. Lovely location, stayed there about 6 months ago.

    Friends have this place – – in Talybont on Usk. Handy to pubs and rides.

    I stayed here (Arian Cottage in Aberdare) last weekend for a yomp up Pen Y Fan:

    Dead friendly. Close to Beacons/Black Mountains. Clean, comfortable and quaint. Owners very easy-going. Simply couldn’t recommend it enough.
