I’ve been contacted by the guys at Brecon Carreg water as they’ve created a series of walks around the south of Wales (naturally) and they wanted to get the word out about them.
I’m not reviewing a product as such here and I haven’t been offered any incentive, I’m just posting two particular walks I was sent details of.
Why share these? Well, it was a friendly approach and they’ve gone to the trouble of compiling some walks. And I liked the fact they are near to conurbations, so reachable by lots of folk who maybe won’t / can’t do big hikes in more remote places. Or maybe who can but like to fit in some shorter (but still leg-stretching) explores of interesting areas.
I haven’t done these walks yet and I’ve only ever walked in North Wales so I fancy myself a trip further south at some point to do these two relatively short hikes. I’m also posting these as, when I checked out the company web site I liked their sustainability / environmental footprint ethos. The Brecon Carreg folk themselves are based in the Brecon Beacons, an area I’d like to also explore one day.
Anyway , here are the two walks that I was sent details of. There are other walks they have compiled but as yet they’re not available as published (as in printed) guides.
Contact the brand via the website if you want some more details though.
Walk 1: Pentyrch, Coed y Bedw Nature Reserve and The Garth
