Walking & Waterfalls
There are lovely walks directly from Gwarllwyn B&B along old footpaths once used by residents to visit chapel or attend school. You can also stick to the quiet lanes for a gentle stroll.
The Crychan and Halfway forests are on the doorstep and offer some great route-marked walks – just follow the map and posts. The terrain is hilly and rugged, but it’s worth it when you see the panoramic views. It is not on the main “tourist trail,” so you can really get away from it all and enjoy peace and tranquility. The famous ‘Epynt Way’ long distance bridleway is also accessible nearby. Why not take a pair of binoculars and see close up the beautiful red kites and buzzards soaring above you.
There are beautiful walks and dramatic scenery at the Llyn Brianne reservoir and nature reserve.
If you want to go further afield we are on the edge of The Brecon National Park offering fantastic open space and superb scenery. Popular walks for visitors are Pen Y Fan & Llyn Y Fan Fach both of which have spectacular scenery.
Henrhyd Falls are where the Batman film “The dark Knight Rises” was filmed and they are the tallest waterfall in South Wales with a 27 meter drop. This part of the Brecon Beacons is known as waterfall country.
We have a utility room for drying out any wet gear ready for your next day’s walk.
Please note. The Crychan Forest holds organised events such as mountain biking, rallying, horse rides, carriage driving and fell running. Please check their events page. On a couple of days each year parts of the forest may be closed off for events.
