Large Group Retreat, near Brecon (CWMCYBR)

The Property is is a wonderful location, especially for walkers with the most stunning view, this is one of the highest sheep farms in the Brecon Beacons and very close to the Peaks of the Brecon Beacons. Footpaths and the old Roman Road lead directly from the farm straight up to Pen-y-fan, Corn Ddu and Cribyn the Peaks of the Beacons.

Dating from the 17th century the barn has great oak beams, some lovely stone work and as many original features as possible having been retained. The barn has been restored with great care and attention into a warm, welcoming and fun place for a group of friends to stay for a "walking or activity weekend", a family re-union or or for a holiday in a beautiful peaceful environment with waterfalls, streams, woodlands and grazing sheep on the farm; there is pony trekking in Cantref Adventure Farm.

It is only a 10 minute drive down the hill to Brecon; mountain bikes can be hired locally and delivered to the farm.

Elsewhere on the farm there is a field for camping if there are extra people in your party.

LocationMid Wales

This is the go to place for outdoor enthusiasts to make the most of the fantastic walking, riding & cycling opportunities, especially in the Cambrian Mountains National Park. The Ceredigion Coastal Path features numerous trails to choose from depending on how far you wish to travel. Whether for a full walking holiday or just a stroll along the cliffs to a village pub, this unspoilt route is perfect and has views out across the famous Cardigan Bay which is home to the UKs largest pod of dolphins.

Dotted along the Wales-West England border are lots of lovely market towns, many of which have their own castle. This disputed ground has a large number of Roman and Norman medieval fortresses, today some are only ruins or just the earthen works remain however there are plenty which have restored to their former glory and are open to visitors.

Mid Wales also just touches on the edge of the Brecon Beacons, a popular mountain range for exploring caves, forest activities and other more extreme outdoor sports such as rock climbing and abseiling. A number of historic railways mean other regions of Wales are easily accessible for a day trip, and make for an enjoyable way to travel and take in the sights.
