Abercrave (Abercraf) sits towards the top end of the Swansea Valley, at the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park. Close to the village situated within Craig y Nos Country Park is the magnificent Craig y Nos Castle, an early Victorian country house, which was one of the first private residences in Britain to have electricity, now a venue for Weddings, it was expanded and developed by the celebrated opera diva, Adelina Patti.
