Dramatic wilderness and breath-taking views, semi-ancient woodlands and spectacular waterfalls – the National Trust cares for some of the most iconic landscapes in South Wales.

And the Brecon Beacons in particular offer some of the area’s most impressive scenery.

Rising 886 metres above sea-level, Pen y Fan is the highest point in southern Britain, offering extensive panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.

Nestled below Pen y Fan is the legendary lake Cwm Llwch. Nearby, Cwm Gwdi was once a Ministry of Defence live firing range and training camp and is now the best place to start some of the most impressive and hardest walking in the Brecon Beacons.

Don't fancy trekking up the mountain? You can explore Cwm Sere instead. It's an impressive glaciated valley with beautiful waterfalls and pools with Pen y Fan peering overhead.

In the east of the Brecon Beacons National Park lie the Black Mountains. Here you can explore the mysterious Skirrid mountain and the distinctive Sugar Loaf mountain with its majestic oak-clad valleys.

To the west of the Beacons you will find Henrhyd Falls – southern Britain’s highest waterfall, crashing into the steep-sided valley from 90ft.

Throughout the year there is a varied guided walks programme. For more information on our walks, and the landscape they celebrate, please visit our website.

Please correct the mistakes below:

The Brecon Beacons as you might imagine is an area of outstanding natural beauty and not a theme park so obviously, not an area you would keep kids entertained. However, there are one or two venues withing the beacons that would be of interest to little ones, including Dan-yr-Ogof caves.
