Buckland have just had a wedding cancellation and have offered us one last weekend at their beautiful venue! This is the very last time that we will be able to stay at Buckland as it has been sold to a private investor and will be changing hands in January 2020. We are extremely sad as this has been such an amazing venue and we will miss it very much!

If you fancy a pre-Christmas weekend of yoga, hiking, delicious food, roaring log fires in this beautiful 4-star country Manor House all decorated for Christmas please join us! 😊

Set in the spectacular countryside of the Brecon Beacons National Park, Buckland Hall is surrounded by mountains with vistas along the Usk Valley. Only 3 hours from central London by road or rail, 2 hours from Birmingham and 1 hour from Cardiff.

From the days of Arthur, through a medieval prince of Wales to Lord Buckland, the site has been home for generations of families and hobbits (Buckland Hall was reportedly the inspiration for J R R Tolkien in choosing the childhood home for Frodo Baggins, when the author was in the area). Now its doors welcome you to experience the comfort and therapeutic qualities of this idyllic 4-star country mansion.

In keeping with their health and environmental ethos, Buckland provide a wholly vegetarian menu guaranteed to be mouth-watering for everyone, even those less accustomed to vegetarian cuisine. Lunches and dinners are served at the table 'home-style' which enhances the relaxed and friendly atmosphere. There is a permanent tea station offering teas, coffees as well as a range of herbal teas. Also, fresh water from Buckland's own spring is freely available at all times, in fact, you will notice the difference as you bathe in it!

After a wonderful day's hiking relax in the cosy library or main hall to enjoy good company and roaring log fires.

The Brecon Beacons National Park contains some of the most beautiful and distinctive uplands in Britain with spectacular mountains, lakes, rivers and caves. The surrounding villages are perfect for historic exploration or quiet relaxation.
