What's it like?

With the largest natural lake in South Wales right on our doorstep (literally!), our Brecon Beacons Adventure for schools and groups offers one of the best adventure programmes available with a great mix of watersports and dry-land activities that make the most of the on-site lake, surrounding countryside and dramatic mountain views.

We've been busy working on a new programme here that really makes the most of the activities available. New for 2021, our five day programme includes up to 13 activities, with each activity lasting 1 1/2 hours. This means pupils will have more time doing activities, which is exactly how it should be. 

From stand up paddleboarding on Llangorse Lake to caving or learning bushcraft skills at our remote lakeside wild camp, this varied activity programme has something for everyone. New for 2021, experience our brand new caving system which we have to say is pretty awesome (and slightly scary, in a good way!). We are also adding axe throwing to the programme from 2021 as well as MEGA stand up paddleboarding and a blind trail. 

You are spoilt for choice of accommodation here. Stay in one of our popular tented villages, heated lakeside camping pods, with comfortable beds. Or, new for 2021 you can stay in our brand new lakeside Tipi Village. Watch this space...Ooh, how exciting, we can't wait to tell you more...!

This centre is now open from 1st April-31st November.

Sample Adventure Programme from £122pp

Located in the Brecon Beacons National Park, South Wales, we are ideally located for adventure and with direct access to Llangorse Lake, we have some great water sports on offer here as well as a wide range of land based activities. 

New for 2021, we have developed a new and improved programme that reduces each session to 90 minutes which makes the programme much more action-packed and engaging and also increases the number of activities you'll do. A 5 day programme now offers you up to 13 activities! Also new for 2021, we have some brand new activities which include caving in our new caving system, axe throwing (don't worry, it's perfectly safe and lots of fun), mega stand up paddleboarding and blind trail. These new activities are in addition to canoeing, kayaking, kata kanu, raftbuilding, climbing, problem solving, orienteering, bushcraft,  archery, air rifles and hill walk. As you can see, it's a brilliant programme, with something everyone can really achieve in and enjoy.

Accommodation

Famous for its lakes, dramatic mountains, open countryside and
 rural villages, the Brecon Beacons is a popular location for school and uniform group adventure residentials. Set in a pretty village in the Brecon Beacons National Park, with views of Pen y Fan,
 our exclusive and private tented and pod villages are ideally located to make the most 
of the water and mountain views. There is a choice of accommodation here. Choose from camping in one of our pre-erected Tented Villages (which will be exclusive to your group) at our private 17 acre Adventure camp, a short walk from the lake. Or, try something a little different and stay in our Lakeside Pod Village, ideal for those seeking a little more `indoor` comfort.

New for 2021 we are building a brand new Tipi Village next to Llangorse Lake which will accommodate up to 60...Oooh, exciting! 

Acorn tented village- Tan Troed

Our scenic 17 acre campsite in the Brecon Beacons offers countryside views and easy access to all the land-based activities. The camp is a short walk away from Llangorse Lake, where the watersports 
take place. Our popular Tented Villages are designed specifically for groups who want to get away from the large shared dormitory blocks and enjoy a more private setting that encourages a real sense of community. Each of our traditional Tented Villages combine comfort with the joy of camping, consisting of 16-18 fire retardant PVC tents each with four beds, sprung mattresses and a solid floor (sleeping up to 60). Teacher tents sleep 2 per tent and offer a few extra luxuries such as timber beds, a wardrobe and lighting.

Each Tented Village also has its own marquee, lit 24hrs a day for dining and socializing and where drinks and fruit are always available. Around the clock, our highly experienced and qualified staff are never far away but you’ll also have your own Village Manager to support you as required.

Your group is guaranteed exclusive use of a village (based on a min. 35 paying people) and so you can make the whole space your own, perfect for group interaction and team building.

Lakeside Camping Pod Village

Our cosy Camping Pod Village set on the shores of Llangorse Lake, sleeps up to 100 guests, offering a few more indoor comforts, without losing that all important adventure feel. This is an ideal choice for larger groups wanting exclusive use. We cater for smaller groups too. 

Pupil pods sleep up to five and have proper beds, lighting and heating. Party Leader pods sleep up to three and have proper beds, a kitchenette, toilet/basin and TV. 

Close to the pods, are separate toilet and shower facilities for boys and girls, a drying room, changing rooms and a private Party Leader shower and changing area. Dining takes place in the on-site canteen and there is a function room and on-site shop, as well as space for games.

Lakeside Tipi Village

New for 2021 we are building a brand new Tipi Village, set next to the lake. This exciting glamping village will accommodate up to 60 and offers giant tipis for pupils and separate, smaller Tipis for Party Leaders. Comfortable camping, at its best!
