  • A lovely drive through the Elan Valley with spectacular scenery - and the blackberry picking was a bonus!! 
  • We spent a lovely couple,of hours walking and driving round lakes. Very relaxing and impressive scenery. Well worth a visit. Has a nice flat walk along lake easily accessible. 
  • Great day out. drove to all the dams. Views were amazing. The noise was incrediable. Never felt so small before. Plenty of red kites to see.
