A country walk or a hike up a mountain
We can provide you with maps for walks direct from your dome door or borrow an OS map and walk in the Black Mountains or Brecon Beacons. We have plenty of recommendations whatever your fitness level and lots of options for families too depending on the age of your little ones. From mountain ridges and hill climbs to forests and waterfalls we can make suggestions to suit the landscape you’d like to explore.

Browse the shops
Hay on Wye, just 5 miles away, is home to a plethora of second hand bookshops, vintage emporiums, cafe’s, bars and even an Ice Cream Parlor. It’s easy to lose yourself for a few hours whatever your age and taste in literature!
Explore Hay Castle. Once a great medieval stronghold, the castle is about to take on a new life — as a major centre for culture, arts and education. Guided tours available at certain times.
There’s often an event or a market in the town square so do check out the Hay Calendar of events before your stay to see if there’s anything that takes your fancy. Events range from Walking and Cycle festivals to Food Markets and History Weekends.
Finish with a Beer
Beer Revolution is an independent craft beer and real ale bottle shop located in the centre of Hay. The array of bottles and cans of beers and ciders on offer is quite something. Drink in the bar or outside in the sunny walled garden at the back. Decide on your favourite and take some away to tuck into round the campfire.
There’s even tasty traditional lemonade and local crisps for the kids.
