Nant y Bedd
From the striking Black Mountain views to the bracken strewn forest, where ancient giants loom, Nant y Bedd certainly takes the joy of exploring gardens to new heights.
Perched 1200 feet up in the undulating green hills of Brecon Beacons National Park, this lush plot (also known as the garden in the forest) is a wonderful place to lose yourself in the beauty of nature. And there’s plenty of opportunities to do so – from entrancing woodland strolls to experiencing the thrill of an unchlorinated natural swimming pond. Its winding wood chip paths and wildlife-friendly planting hint at the eco aspects of the garden. Among the abundant vegetation (the garden swears by organic principles), you might come across a rustic shepherd’s hut, a tree-sculpture called Cedric and a treehouse tucked into the embrace of a 178-year-old Sycamore. If black mountain magic exists, you’ll surely find it while picnicking in the enchanting surrounds of Nant y Bedd.
Open from 30th June until 30th September on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday afternoons at 2pm-6pm (Also be open on Bank Holiday afternoons)
