The 157 acre Craig y Cilau National Nature Reserve lies to the south west of Llangattock. The limestone escarpment sits in the Brecon Beacons National Park and was declared a National Nature Reserve for its importance to wildlife, particularly plants. It is situated on the north side of Mynydd Llangatwg, about 1 mile south-west of the village. The Reserve is popular with both nature lovers and bird watchers and there are numerous caves and disused quarries along the escarpment. The limestone cliffs are home to many scarce plants including maiden pink, hutchinsia, and the most southerly British population of alpine enchanter's nightshade. About 50 species of bird breed on the reserve including ring ouzel and raven on the cliffs and redstart, wood warbler and pied flycatcher in the woods. One of the caves, Agen Allwedd, holds a roost of lesser horseshoe bats during the winter months.
