Perfect Brecon Beacons Base

The Wellington Hotel is in the centre of the historic market town of Brecon, amid the rolling hills of the Brecon Beacons National Park. As one of the oldest buildings in Brecon, The Wellington’s beautiful Georgian façade looks over the town square and the monument of the Duke of Wellington himself.

Activities including canoeing, mountain biking and kayaking are available at Black Mountain Adventures. Horse riding and trekking can be found at Cantref Adventure Farm, while the town itself hosts the famous annual Brecon Jazz Festival and boasts the sights of Brecon Cathedral.

After a day of exploring you can enjoy a delicious meal from our menu full of great quality grills and traditional pub classics with a glass of fine wine or great quality beer.

Whatever you’re looking for, you will find it here at The Wellington.


The Cask Marque Award is an accreditation which guarantees guests the perfect pint of cask ale, every time. All the cask ales on sale are tested twice a year by a qualified assessor for temperature, appearance, aroma and taste and every beer must reach the required standard in order for the licensee to pass the inspection. Mystery visits may be carried out at any time and feedback is invited from the public.

Cask Marque is an independent, non-profit making organisation formed in 1998 with the aim of improving beer quality in British pubs through the accreditation scheme, training courses on cellar management and the setting of industry standards through a series of beer quality charters, including cellar management, glass-cleanliness and line cleaning.

Over 10,000 pubs hold the Award and each one participates in the ‘World’s Biggest Ale Trail’. This allows drinkers to scan the Cask Marque certificates in the pubs using their phone and the more scans they make, the more prizes they win. Download the CaskFinder App to join the fun!
