We'd been walking for hours and walked into this nature reserve, it was a grey day but we were stunned by the scenery, it must be breathtaking in the sunshine. An old building houses the museum/information centre with toilets which were a welcome sight, slightly stunned to find a corner with tea, coffee, water, kettle etc to make your own... 更多
Found this place on the way home from a holiday to north Wales so didn't have the time to stay long. A great variety of trees and plants. The gorse and heather were in flower making the whole place colourful. Saw many birds including red kites. Plenty of parking and picnic tables. Fantastic scenery very peaceful.Pity we couldn't stay longer... 更多
We visited here on the last day of our family holiday to Wales! The weather was stunning and very warm. It is an absolute must if you enjoy peaceful walks, adventure and amazing views! Great to bring a picnic and take in the landscapes. Could explore for miles... If the weathers good! 5*
Lovely relaxing place. Warden friendly and helpful and yes we did see an otter at the waterfall! Honesty box for tea and coffee. Plenty of way marked walks.
Great views and walks/cycle routes. Visitor centre with cafe and plenty of outdoor seating. Wildlife is everywhere you look and it's a particularly great location to watch red kites - walk up to the top of the sighting area if you have time. Very beautiful and peaceful location.
I visited Gilfach with two friends yesterday. Only found out about it from the Internet, and what a find. Local, and so delightful, if you enjoy peace, wildlife and beautiful scenery. A warm sunny day completed the perfection. A lovely rural setting, lots of information and a variety of walks. Really friendly staff and a great cup of coffee/tea. Saw... 更多
This is a beautiful place, even on a cold wet spring day such as we've just experienced. Normally very good for bird life but understandably they were hunkering down out of the wind and hail. We still enjoyed the walk though as did the dog who is welcome when on a lead...there are sheep after all.
This is such a hidden treasure. We had a good few hours here walking responsibly with our dog on a lead and enjoying the peace, the calm and the wonderful views and wildlife. The careful placing of seats was much appreciated as was the caring thought of the refreshments and honesty box for those in need when the centre is... 更多
Gilfach is a large open area just 3 miles north of Rhayader, off the A370. There is a small car park on the right just as you turn in and an explanation of the area, its wildlife, flora and fauna close at hand. There is also a guide to the area with the different walks to consider. It may be... 更多
