A week in Brecon is nowhere near enough time to explore the many and varied waterfalls in the region. If Wales, and Brecon in particular, has one thing to offer, it would be rain, and the rugged landscape combined with this plentiful source of water offers up a great number of waterfalls both large and small. Here are just a few of the falls that we visited.

Not far north of Pontneddfechan is waterfall country and here are a few of the impressive falls found there

Brecon Waterfall Sgwd yr Eira

Sgwd yr Eira (Waterfall of The Snow). If you fancy an experience (and getting soaked) you can walk behind these massive and powerful falls – but you will get wet!

Just north of the Talybont reservoir is the Talybont Forest
