The National Park is full of wonderful reserves, woodlands and grasslands where you and the family to enjoy the wonders of nature.

One of our most popular places for a waterside picnic or a gentle stroll in pleasant, leafy surroundings is Craig-y-Nos Country Park. 

We have also several National Nature Reserves that are delightful to explore. They include Craig-y-Cilau near Crickhowell, Craig Cerrig-Gleisiad southwest of Brecon and the Brecknock Wildlife Trust's Pwll-yr-Wrach near Talgarth.

There are spectacular beechwoods at Cwm Clydach and beautiful mixed woods of lime, oak and hazel coppice at Coed-y-Cerrig, which is always busy with butterflies in summer.

Wherever you go, remember to follow the Countryside Code and do your best to avoid disturbing any wildlife, plants or natural features.
