Abercraf, a former mining village, lies on the edge of the Brecon Beacon in the Upper Swansea Valley. With the National Park right on the doorstep, there is plenty here for the whole family to enjoy. Great days out include the Wales Ape and Monkey Sanctuary, just outside the village, and a little further north is the spectacular National Showcaves Centre for Wales. For a more cosmopolitan day out, the city of Swansea is just over half an hour away by car. Abercraf offers a great central location for exploring both the Brecon Beacons and South Wales areas.
