This location is amazing and it's in a fairly remote place. However, it is more than worth the effort, and nearby Lly Y Fan is well worth a look too

Went with my husband whilst holidaying in Wales and loved it. We spent an hour watching around 100+ red kites feeding and circling around the sky. What a sight to be seen. Well worth a visit

I’m sorry , I don’t know about accommodation but everything in the Brecon Beacons is quite close if you have transport...so the red kite station is very easily accessible and it is wheelchair friendly.
