Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Brecon Forest Farmhouse, Llaneglwys, Powys, sleeps 4-30 in 5 bedrooms.
The Farmhouse is situated in the hills between the Upper Wye and Upper Usk valleys and is surrounded by Brecon Forest.
The Farmhouse, which is self catering, is recommended for extended family gatherings especially at Christmas or over the New Year. The comprehensive catering facilities are user friendly and in the summer the large barbecue on the open sided, covered patio is a firm favourite. The views from here, over the rear lawn, are breathtaking and at night there is no light pollution. Generally is it only the bird song that breaks the silence.
The showers, washrooms and toilets are designed for school or college groups with separate male and female staff facilities. This means family groups are spoilt for choice!
Sleeping facilities are designed so there is flexibility to accommodate males, females, the young and the old with two dormitories and three bedrooms. Although there are 35 bunk spaces, accommodation is restricted to 30 persons which allows for this flexibility.
The lounge, with comfortable leather settees and a wood burning stove, has a reference library with books on all relevant subjects related to activities and studies carried out by groups.
Canoe groups have utilised the facility as it is very convenient for both the Wye and the Usk. It is also a very suitable base for D of E training and expeditions. Golfing groups have found the Farmhouse a superb base for the half dozen or so accessible scenic courses where a friendly welcome is always extended. The forest is an ideal area for field study, orienteering and mountain biking whilst Triathlon clubs have found the environment most suitable for training weekends.
The Farmhouse can also be used for study weekends and as well as the usual subjects such as Biology, Geography and Geology it has been used for workshops in 'A' level Physics, Music , Dance and Drama. The village hall which has a stage can be used for groups to put on a performance at the end of a workshop. The local inhabitants welcome this use and support performances.
