There is nothing like a winter walk to blow the cobwebs away and to get us feeling better. Being in the great outdoors also helps us to relax and de-stress. We have many great places where we can enjoy a walk, but one of the best is the Brecon Beacons in Wales. Whether you want a robust hike, or a family friendly stroll, the stunning beauty and scenic views are spectacular.
Keep cosy and visit shamrockgift for aran sweaters and take yourself a warm drink before heading into the beautiful Brecon Beacons. Here are some of the best places you can go for a walk in the area…
Waterfall Country – Head to the beautiful Waterfall country in Powys. This area is full of rolling mossy rocks and breath-taking waterfalls, which during the chilly winter months glisten with ice crystals that have formed on the rocks.
Pen Y Fan – This is the highest peak in southern Britain, and there are many routes to the top – some are more gentle and suitable for kids, or if you want to enjoy a longer hike that encompasses the surrounding peaks of Cribyn, Corn Du and Fan Y Byg you can. The views are nothing short of spectacular when you reach the top.
Fan Hir – This seven mile route is a great way to get the blood pumping – from the Black Mountain to Llyn y Fan Fawr lake this is a popular route with runners who enjoy the views as they run along the rocky ridge looking over the valley below.
