Best Spots for Picnics in the Brecon Beacons

Make the most of the sun this weekend by heading outside for a relaxing picnic! Here are some of our favourite picnic spots for a blissful weekend in the #BreconBeacons.

Craig-y-Nos Country Park
Lakes, ponds and big valley views mean that the Craig-y-Nos Circular is the ideal walk for some alfresco eating.
Vaughan Gardens
Take a break from the Talybont Valley by walking through a peaceful garden sown with herbs and other plants author and physician Henry Vaughan would have used in his scientific and medical experiments, the Vaughan Gardens are a fragrant spot to stop and bask in the serenity of the surrounding countryside. Laid out with benches, it’s also the ideal place for a relaxing picnic.
Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal
A short distance into the Brecon to Pencelli canal walk you’ll find the perfect picnic spot, complete with ornate woodcarvings that depict the canal’s industrial heritage.
National Park Visitor Centre
With spectacular views, naturally beautiful grounds and children’s trails for little ones to explore, the Visitor Centre is the perfect place for a picnic. Get your fill before walking on Mynydd Illtud.
Llangorse Lake

Castle Meadows- Abergavenny
This 20 hectare site of flat, floodplain grazing land is next to the River Usk, along with bordering trees, small copses, streams and ponds making it the perfect picnic spot! Waitrose is near by so you can stock up on the essentials. More here

You’re spoiled for choice when it comes to inviting riverside picnic spots on a Waterfall Country walk to Sgŵd Gwladus.
