For anyone who is familiar with Brecon Beacons (we will be staying in Crickhowell and exploring the area, including the Black Mountains, and a drive to Abergavenny), could you recommend your top three must see stops in the area? We are coming from far, far away and always see these amazing photos of the area where the land just sort of opens up before you, and other areas that are lush and green - we are hoping to find the best of them. This could be via short hike (say 2 or 3 hours round trip). Please let us know where you would go in Brecon Beacons or the Black Mountains if you had the chance. It could also include farmland with sheep grazing (pastoral scenes) or little villages.
In addition to scenery if you can recommend any must-see stops that would also be great.
I know it's a bit out of the way but has anyone been to the Red Kite reserve and had any experience there?
We have also been searching for the scenery from the first two Narnia movies which was apparently filmed in the Black Mountains but no luck so far. It would be great if we could find out where this is.
Any reply would be super.
