From mid-spring, you can't miss the stunning and fragrant carpet of bluebells all over the country. These flowers are very tender and vibrant, with nodding heads of blue on bent stems. As bluebells are one of the most famous spring flowers in Wales, they often attract a popular, seasonal pilgrimage.
Some of the best locations to admire the sea of bluebells are the ancient North Wales forests of Coed Trellyniau and Coed y Felin in Flintshire, near the Afon Chwiler Valley. In South Wales, visit the enchanting Brynna Woods and Llanharan Marsh Reserve, consisting of woodland, scrub, and marshy grassland. The picturesque Castle Woods is the nature reserve near Llandyfeisant and Dinefwr Castle. Old Warren Hill is another location covered in bluebells in the early summer. Coed Penglanowen reserve in the Nanteos area also boasts bluebells and anemone carpets.
