Nature Trail

Llanwrthwl,
Llandrindod Wells,
Powys,
LD1 6NN

Details

Small delights and tiny treasures await as you wander through the orchard, dip for minnows in Y Nant Perlan, make a den in the woods, hang your wish on the wishing tree, cast a spell in the witches' cavern, tell tales beneath the spreading chestnut tree, and follow the seasons through the snowdrop woods, banks of wild spring bluebells and ox-eye daisies in the drowsy summer hay meadow...............

The Willow Way hosts a range of workshops on Shakespeare's text, poetry, art, nature and much more. Alternatively you can view the trail by appointment.

The trail is supported by the open-air Living Willow Theatre which offers performance, festivals and workshops as well as providing a bar and BBQ on events days. Penlanole Organic Farm also offers camping in this stunningly beautiful part of the upper-Wye Valley.

Notes

We will always try to make visits for those with disabilities as comfortable as possible, please ask a volunteer if you need extra help or comfort and we will do what we can. This is a working farm so the ground is not particularly even. There is some access through the nature trail for those with mobility problems but it will not cater for all needs as there is grass, uneven ground etc.
