After the country has been battered by storms in the recent weeks it seems we’re finally in for some spring sunshine!

The Brecon Beacons come alive during this beautiful season with frolicking lambs, flowers bursting in the meadows and many reasons to spend the entire day outside.

Here are some ideas how to enjoy those first few days of spring…

1. Learn how to lamb

Good Day Out organise a day lambing with money towards the Farming Community Network where guests help with a range of daily tasks: feeding lambs, bedding down, marking, moving, defrosting water, collecting eggs and so on. Come and help these lovely creatures put some life in their leaps!

2. Get hiking

Read some of our Walk Wednesday blogs for inspiration to dust off those walking boots and head for the hills!

3. Count the petals

Visit the National Botanic Garden of Wales and emerse yourself in the blooming beauties. Some plants have come as far as California, Austrailia and Chile!

4. At last… picnic time!

Pack a picnic full of lovely treats from our local shops and producers and then finish off with an ice-cream from Llanfaes Dairy!

5. Enjoy a pint in the sun
There are so many lovely beer gardens around the Brecon Beacons but our favourites have to be The Star Inn, Talybont by the side of the canal, the Gliffaes Hotel for its stunning views from the terrace or The Bridge, Crickhowell overlooking the River Usk.
