About Us

The Dragons Back

Welcome to The Dragons Back, the highest pub in the Brecon Beacons National Park, a Country Inn with plenty of accommodation, b&b rooms, bunkhouses and a campsite.

The pub is over 300 years old, it was originally a hill farm owned by The Glan Usk Estate. Over the years the farm gradually became a pub. We are over 1000ft above sea level ( highest pub in the Brecon Beacons).

Originally the pub was called The Castle Inn, named after the iron age hill fort ( Castell Dinas ) that stood on the hill directly behind the pub. We have decided to rename it The Dragons Back, after the ridge directly behind Castell Dinas.

We are located in a truly stunning part of the brecon beacons with beautiful views all around, we aim to provide our guests with a warm welcome, friendly service and reasonable prices.

We have owned The Dragons Back for over 10 years now, and offer a range of accommodation from camping, to bunkhouses-bed only or b&b, Shepherds hut, Tardis and finally 4 bed & breakfast rooms. We pride ourselves on being able to cater for everyone from single customers to large groups, be they a stag party or motorcycle club.
