You coming from afar for our Waterfalls Walk? Well, we recommend booking accommodation at Sgwd Gwladys cafe – The staff are great, it’s en suit rooms and a bunkroom so small and large groups catered for and it’s at the walks start point.
To be brutally honest, the weather was looking just a little bit worse than awful. The heavens had opened yet again the day before, causing more flooding and I was in two minds as to whether to join the 8 Waterfalls Walk organised by Andrew Lamb of Wales Outdoors.
Following a day on the hill walking the 2000 footers of Fforest Fawr and being battered by a storm with winds of up to 50mph we were happy to be in sunshine and in the valleys of the waterfalls area of the Brecon Beacons National Park.
The waterfalls area of the Brecon Beacons National Park is a main tourism attraction for South Wales and rightly so. We deliver a 10 mile 8 waterfalls walk and then we split that into two walks and deliver on different days two 5 mile 4 waterfall walks. These photos are from the second of the four mile waterfall walks.
While Andy was away in Germany’s Bavarian Alps – photos to follow – David picked up the baton and ran with our seasonal, midway between Christmas and New Years, Eight Waterfalls Walk, something we’ve delivered now for a fair few years. David had in support his brother, Steve and our regular assistant for the waterfalls Isobel.
Getting towards the end of the year and the last but one waterfalls walk and one surprisingly not well attended, not sure why, maybe everyone was out last minute shopping, but hey, that meant we had the waterfalls to ourselves 🙂
