Looking for bed and breakfast, a bunkhouse or camping? Comfortable accommodation, good beer, tasty food (including real vegetarian choice) and friendly folk all make for an enjoyable break in the superb Welsh countryside. Mountain biking, walking, gliding, trekking and canoeing are all on our doorstep, as is Brecon, Abergavenny and Hay on Wye. In fact, activities galore are available nearby, but for those who just want to relax, come and try it, it doesn’t get much more laid back than this! 

Dragons Back Inn

The Dragons Back lies at the top of an unspoilt valley within the Brecon Beacons National Park, Wales. It is a former hill farm located at over 1,000 feet above sea level (The highest pub in the Brecon Beacons) in the rural heart of the Black Mountains, which make up the Eastern part of the Brecon Beacons National Park.

This lovely Inn lies at the top of a unspoilt sheep farming valley in a peaceful part of southern Powys, grass covered, round topped mountains ascend on all sides, quietly grazed by hardy Welsh sheep and hill ponies. The area is popular with those who love The Great Outdoors and many people come to walk, mountain bike or purely to escape their usual surroundings and relax in our bed & breakfast accommodation. 

On cold evenings you can relax by our open log fire, join us for a drink and try our good home cooked food, before tumbling into your comfy bed in our bed and breakfast rooms or bunkhouse. For the more hardy, camping is available all year round. We are well known for the quality of our real ales, and usually have 3 different ones on the pumps at the weekend. We have been listed in Camra for ale, we are in both current editions of The Good Pub Guide, and the AA Pub Guide, and our bed & breakfast accommodation is 3 star. We also have a drying room, mountain bike storage and parking for about 50 cars. 

Information for Walkers

The Brecon Beacons National Park offers some of the best walking in Wales. High level routes that can be as challenging as you want to quiet valley rambles are all found within the boundaries of the park. The Dragons Back Inn is well located for walkers as it sits within the 'Great Outdoors' with walking from the door. However for those who wish to explore a little wider its location means that a variety of walks from contrasting parts of the National Park can be enjoyed although obviously with the Black Mountains on the doorstep these will be your first choice for walks.
