Brecons Beacons National Park is only the fifth destination in the world to be granted international dark sky reserve status. The following are just a couple of the best spots to stargaze.
Usk Reservoir. This is a superb dark location which is protected from the light pollution of the South Wales Valleys. The Usk Reservoir has ample parking and is easily reached from the Trecastle area. Have a family picnic as the sun goes down, then set up your telescope to enjoy outstanding dark skies.
Crai Reservoir. This reservoir is extremely dark, but unfortunately, it only has a few locations that are accessible to the casual observer. The village has a field nearby that provides great views and parking.
