Treat your loved one to a Romantic Spa Break at Peterstone Court

Its home is in the vaulted caverns once used as the house cellars – we thought being close to the earth in the Brecon Beacons would naturally generate energy, and be a perfect location for our spa. Its design introduces a place of calm where you can slow-down, unwind and be pampered, allowing you a little well deserved ‘me’ time.
Our spa also offers you the chance to relax in the Jacuzzi; detox in the spa-brochure-6sauna; take a dip in our seasonal heated pool or work-out in our gym, where qualified fitness instructors are on hand to help you. Or simply sit in our Moroccan styled relaxation room after a treatment, have a drink and just chill-out. However, it must be said that the views of Cribyn and Pen Y Fan from the house will almost help you to recharge as much as the treatments do, but one thing is for certain, with this combination we know you will leave us feeling relaxed, refreshed and simply – lovely!

Treat your loved one to a romantic walk with four little Piggies in the Brecon Beacons National Park with Good Day Out!

Have a micro adventure with Good Day Out and take four little Kune Kune pigs for a walk, followed by a Pig-Nic of tea and cakes! Babz, Hazel, Holly & Willow are all young and love meeting people and going for walks.  Great fun for animal lovers wanting a fun and engaging few hours in the countryside with these friendly little animals. This mini adventure includes an easy stroll with the piggies along a scenic hidden valley, with them yomping in and out of the hedgerow and lots of treats and scratches.

gooddayout piggy walking 2.jpg
After the stroll, you will be treated to refreshments by a log-burning stove and to have the chance to learn about the girls and their life in the Brecon Beacons. The experience is available year round with join-in dates for small groups, but for St Dwynwens Day and Valentines Day, we are offering a “Private” Piggy Walk which is a luxury pig walk for just two. There is also an added extra as with all Good Day Out experience days a good cause will benefit from your day out. Some of the funds taken for this experience will be donated to RetireMutt which is a charity that helps retired police dogs, in recognition of their great service.

The Private Piggy Walk costs £125 for 2 and includes an ample cake selection. Join-in days cost £25 per adult and £15 for 16s & under. The walks are held in Heol Senni, around 10 miles SW of Brecon. For more information and other dates please visit www.gooddayout.co.uk

Unique New Years Resolutions

Getting fit? Losing weight? Learn something new? Get creative? It can all be done right here in the Brecon Beacons… 

Don’t settle for supermarkets
With so many wonderful local producers on our doorstep and high streets brimming with boutiques, there’s no need to step foot into a big chain here in in the Brecon Beacons. We have so many food festivals on throughout the year so you can stock up, as well as regular farmers markets throughout the year!

Open your mind to the outdoors – Make the most of the outdoors this year; Good Day Out provide a variety of workshops, and every experience booked gives funds to the designated cause! Try stargazing with an astronomer in the UK’s only Dark Sky Reserve, spend a day learning the art of cheese-making or have a go at hedgerow foraging. Or for
something more obscure in 2018; learn how to sheep shear from fleece to felt,
enjoy a ‘canine scent’ dog training day or spend a morning nursing hoglets.
Workshops from £20.

Get Fit for Free
Well, it is a new year and maybe time to shape up. So, why not crack on with those new year resolutions and burn some unwanted calories against the stunning backdrop of 568 acres of National Botanic Garden? We have created a series of trails around the Garden – some on flat paths to suit strollers, pushchairs and wheelchairs; and some more rugged, off-road routes around the estate, passing the waterfall. And, if you can get to the Garden Monday-to-Friday in January, admission is completely FREE.

What better way to try out your new fitness gadget, dig out and dust off that FitBit you were given last Christmas and clock up a serious number of steps? The various trails are clearly way-marked and there’s a free map to accompany you on your journey – pick one up on your way into the Garden. And each route has a ‘cupcake’ rating that indicates the degree of difficulty. So, whether you are planning a buggy boot camp, have a walking group in search of a new venue or you belong to a fitness group in need of a change of scene, this will fit like your favourite trainers.

If you can only make it to the Garden at the weekend, it’s not the end of the world because entry is only £4 on Saturdays and Sundays in January. If you want to know more, visit our website, email info@gardenofwales.org.uk or call 01558 667149.

Go paragliding!
thumb_1399__auto_598952a0ed0230905ded543b0edf0b92.jpegOur grassy fields and hilltops serve as excellent take-off and landing sites for paragliders and hang gliders. Some pilots make cross-country flights exceeding 300 miles and fly up to 4 miles high! This is also a favourite region for soaring over the rolling, green landscape in a glider. You can train at our recognised schools, which are also great spots for those who prefer to watch from the safety of the ground.

You can search for the cave where Arthur and his knights are said to slumber, somewhere near Dinas Rock, or visit Craig y nos Country Park to admire the former estate of Adelina Patti, the most famous Opera Diva of the Victorian age. If you visit Tretower Court, keep an eye out for the ghostly White Lady who waits for her love to return from the battle of Agincourt. You may even feel the wind on your face as the hunt goes by with King Arthur’s men in hot pursuit of the giant, enchanted boar Twrch Trywth.

Award-winning author Horatio Claire has re-imagined all these local legends and re-told them in a new book: Brecon Beacons, Myths & Legends, which is also worth checking out.
