Here are some walks recommended by our guests
The farm walk – In each cottage there is a suggested route around the farm. You are welcome to walk anywhere around the farm during your stay. Please remember to leave all gates as you found them, livestock can be and to keep your dogs on a lead. Please ask for advice before you go.
Waterfall Country – There are many beautiful walks in this area. The Elidir trail has been recommended for all abilities and our Brownies loved exploring the Gunpowder Trail.
It is possible to walk cross country to the Usk Reservoir using an OS map, but you can also drive round and enjoy a walk, mainly level with muddy patches. Great for exercising yourself with the dogs and children on bikes.
Walking up the farm and up onto the hill (with the aid of a map) you can walk to Llyn y Fan Fach. A beautifully scenic walk across open hill with just sheep and ponies for company. If you would like to drive to a nearby carpark and walk for a picnic you can download a map here.
