Godre Pentre (Welsh for end-of-the-village) is situated in the village of Ystradfellte between Abadare and Brecon, conveniently   near the New Inn and caves such as the Little Neath River Cave. Pant Mawr Pot and Porth-y-Ogof> South Wales Caving Club is about a 20     minute drive away. The area is however otherwise rather remote and you need to ensure that you have a basic food  supply and petrol in your tank! There are plenty of other activities such walking on the Brecon Ffans  the famous 'waterfall walk' and climbing at Dinas   Rock.      (POST CODE CF 44 9JF)
