Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Brecon Forest Farmhouse, Llaneglwys, Powys, sleeps 4-30 in 5 bedrooms.

The Farmhouse is an attractive location for all types of youth groups, including scouts, guides, boys and girls brigades as well as sports teams and dance groups. It is also an ideal base for Duke of Edinburgh award expeditions.

Activities such as campcraft, navigation exercises, gorge walks and sisal trails may take place directly from the Farmhouse.

A wide range of other activities are within a twenty to thirty minute drive from the Farmhouse. These can include pony trekking, canoeing, mountaineering and other activities that require a slightly different location but still within the Brecon Beacons.

Using the two group dormitories and the two staff rooms will allow easy segregation of males and females. There is also a single bedroom for the group leader.

Leaders will find the three dedicated bedrooms comfortable and warm, with light switches to control the children's dormitories.

There are two spin dryers and an efficient drying room, which will dry a group's clothes overnight after a wet day up on the hills or down on the river.

The lounge has comfortable leather seating and workbenches around the outer wall which creates an excellent study facility. Internet is installed and there is no extra charge to use this service. WiFi is available across the downstairs and there are wired network points available across the Farmhouse, which can be used where required. The wheeled tables can be folded up and moved out of the way to create some extra space in the dining room.

Using the large ranges in the kitchen, school and youth groups have discovered that it is possible for children, under supervision, to prepare excellent meals for the entire group.

The rear lawn is ideal for games and the lower paddock is most suitable for campcraft training. The large, stainless steel barbecue on the patio is more than adequate to cook and feed all the hungry youngsters!


The kitchen has two large ranges with one electric oven, one gas oven and ten gas rings. There is a large fridge and freezer. All utensils included.
