Maeswalter is a 300 year old farmhouse situated in the mountainous Brecon Beacons National Park which divides naturally into three well-defined upland areas, the wild Black Mountains of the west, the gentler Black Mountains to the east and in the middle of South wales the highest peak, the Breacons themselves.

Separating these last two ranges is the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal, 33 miles of scenic waterway, perfect for boating, fishing and easy towpath walks. We are surrounded by breath taking scenery, a haven for wildlife including the Red Kite, Siskins and the Red start, peace and quiet and an ideal place to unwind and relax in complete tranquility.

In February 2013 The Brecon Beacons National Park has become only the fifth destination in the world to be granted prestigious International Dark Sky Reserve status making it Wales' first International Dark Sky Reserve.

The accreditation is awarded by the International Dark Sky Association, based in the USA. International Dark Sky Reserves are areas recognised as possessing an exceptional or distinguished quality of starry nights and inocturnal environment specifically protected for scientific, natural, educational, cultural, heritage or public enjoyment.
