Searching For Animals at Garwnant Visitors Centre


Today I went on a mummy adventure, just myself and the kids, we headed out for a walk in the Brecon Beacons and stumbled upon Garwnant visitors centre.

This is a place that we would often visit many moons ago but haven’t been for around 10 years… and boy has it changed. It’s nestled in some beautiful forest surrounded by mountains overlooking a huge reservoir.

The centre itself boasts of a cafe and a fab play park, mountain bike courses and walking trails which are fully accessible for wheelchair users and buggies.

The cost to park was £2 but you can avoid this by parking outside of the entrance and walking up.

We visited today mainly to walk although the kids did spend time in the park…i forgot to photo the park although there is a view from the swing included 🙂 .

Here’s how beautiful the place looked.

Before we went home we had another go in the park.12745657_1169900976356081_6953614186538950943_n

And we stopped at the reservoir we’d overlooked to reflect on our day and chuck stones in on our way home.IMG_1045
