Living & Working At Our Brecon Beacons Adventure Resort
In the foothills of the Black Mountains, with the River Wye running nearby, you’ll find the Brecon Beacons Adventure Resort. When you think about an ‘Outdoor Pursuits Activity Centre’ you’ll probably be picturing something like Tregoyd, which is the former country house of Lord Hereford. It's situated at the foothills of the Black Mountains within the Brecon Beacons National Park, on the English/Welsh border, and is one of the quintessential monuments of the area.
