Description

Situated in the heart of the beautiful Fforest Fawr

Garwnant is the gateway to the magnificent, Brecon Beacons National Park, and it’s surrounded by beautiful forestry. The Garwnant Visitor Centre sits in the heart of this beautiful forest and is the starting point for walking trials – the perfect place to explore with the pooch.

Walking Trails

There’s a couple of walking trails for you and your four legged pal to explore.

The Willow Trail stretches for half a mile, made for those looking for easy access to the forest and a gentle all-ability trail. It’s perfect for visitors with wheelchairs, electric buggies and pushchairs. The Willow Walk has a number of stream crossings with bridges, and a lovely a willow tunnel.

The Wern Walk is made for those looking for something a little more adventurous and stretches for two miles. It’s a woodland trail past the ruins of Wern Farm, which reveals this area’s agricultural past. The trail returns to the visitor centre along a forest road which offers some good views along the way.

Garwnant Puzzle Trails

These puzzle trails offer the opportunity to make your walk a little more exciting. Perfect for those with children (or for those who love to let out their inner child). You can pick up a leaflet from the visitor centre and try out either our Animal Sculpture trail or accessible Tree Trail. Get spotting!

Garwnant’s dog friendly restaurant

The best part of a walkies? Unwinding with a good ole cuppa and a spot of food!  The restaurant is adjacent to the visitor centre and run by the community loving, Just Perfect Catering. The restaurant serves hot and cold drinks, cakes, lunches and daily specials. They source Welsh produce by working with small to medium artisan producers & family farms.

There are picturesque views from the restaurant area and there is outside seating for warmer days.
