Details

The Warren - The Warren has been popular with tourists for over 200 years because of Water-Break-Its-Neck Waterfall, the spectacular waterfall. Named for its rabbit warren which once provided a source of food.

The area has seen huge changes since the days of Radnor Forest was an ancient hunting forest.

In those days of great feasts this was a large moorland area, but in Victorian time the then owners, the Harpton Court Estate, decided to create a 'picturesque' forest and planted lots of trees. You can see many of these trees, now huge, on the historic routes we have reopened for you to enjoy.

There are three trails that start from the Warren Wood car park:

Waterfall Walk (one third of a mile, half a kilometre)
This mainly level, short walk from Warren Wood car park goes straight to the waterfall, which was a popular destination for Victorian tourists, and back to the car park.

Water Break-its-neck Trail (three quarters of a mile, one kilometre)
This circular woodland walk from Warren Wood car park leads you above the famous Water Break-its-neck waterfall.

Warren Trail (1.5 miles, 2.3 kilometres)
This circular walk from Warren Wood car park includes a climb of 560 feet (170 metres). It has view of some of the largest trees in Radnorshire, many of which were planted in Victorian times.

Directions:

Warren Wood car park is off the A44 between Kington and Llandrindod Wells.
From the New Radnor direction, look out, after a mile, for a brown advance warning sign for parking and information on your right. Turn here and go through the first parking area and follow the forest road uphill for Warren Wood car park. It is a small car park with room for 8-10 cars.

The nearest rail station is in Knighton.

The OS grid ref is SO 187 598.
