Things To Do

Our Cottage is situated in some of the most varied and beautiful countryside in the UK, providing a massive range options to distract you.


Out & About

Whether you enjoy the great outdoors or are happiest browsing through a bookshop, you'll find plenty to fill your time.

Explore the natural beauty of the Brecon Beacons, or immerse yourself in the bustle of Hay-on-Wye - or perhaps explore the fascinating coal mine at Big Pit and descend hundreds of feet below the surface and see how life was for the miners.

Surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK, the scenery and variety of walks on your doorstep really is unparalleled.

There are walks to suit everyone: from strolls alongside the banks for Grwyne Fawr Reservoir; energetic hikes up Pen Y Fan or Hay Bluff; or a relaxing walk enjoying the beauty of the Wye Valley.

The countryside around us provides fantastic opportunities for shooting.

A number of well run shoots take place locally and we are able to organise large pheasant and partridge days, or more informal rough shooting excursions.

We can arrange something to suit everyone, as well as providing transport, food and drink for your day - and keeping guns safely secured.
