Radnor Forest Fishpools and Warren Wood
Fishpools and Warren Wood form part of the beautiful Radnor Forest, located near the border of England and Wales.
Both have a wealth of history behind them and any route you decide to take will leave you eager to discover more.
This exquisite area is composed of moorland and steep valleys with breathtaking views.
Be sure to keep an eye out for the stunning Cadair Idris, Snowdonia and even the Brecon Beacons in the distance.
A magnificent area of Radnor Forest, Warren Wood has been much loved for over 200 years thanks to the magical waterfall you’ll find here.
Once an ancient deer hunting ground of royal kings, the picturesque forest you’ll see today was planted in the Victorian era and now features beautiful scenery and an abundance of wildlife.
All this adventure is bound to be making those tummies rumble!
You’ll be glad to see the small picnic site, which is the perfect place to sit down and take in your wonderful surroundings.
Can you think of anywhere better to tuck into a delicious homemade lunch than in the woodlands, listening to the wildlife and breathing in the fresh air with the scent of wildflowers all around you?
Three marvellous walks to choose from
Once popular with Victorian visitors, the Waterfall Walk is only half a mile long but takes you up close to the gorgeous sight of the waterfall.
It’s best to visit here after it’s been raining – there’ll be more water crashing down, making this view even more spectacular.
On a hot day, there’s nothing better than taking off your walking boots and dipping in for a quick paddle.
Once your adventures at the waterfall have come to an end, we’d recommend heading over to Fishpools, another part of Radnor Forest.
With a walking trail through the woods and its own special history to be discovered, it’s definitely worth a visit.
Head out on the two-and-a-half-mile waymarked route through the forest, enjoying spectacular views over the village of Bleddfa.
The name Bleddfa actually means ‘place of the wolf’ because it’s believed the last wolves in Wales were moved out of Radnor Forest before being killed here.
Aside from that grim tale, the scenery is beautiful - bring your camera along to take pictures of the marvellous views overlooking Abbey Cwm Hir and Llandrindod Wells too.
With benches at the two viewpoints, you can rest your feet for a while and take it all in.
What are you waiting for?
After your first visit to Radnor Forest, you’ll be eagerly awaiting the next time that you can slip on those comfy shoes and pack up a picnic to head back here.
With plenty of areas to explore, you can be sure to see new, beautiful sights on every visit.
