Step inside and enjoy the intimate spendour and warmth of Buckland Hall
Buckland Hall is a Victorian country mansion set in 62 acres of grounds overlooking the River Usk and the peaks of the Brecon Beacons National Park. All this and we’re less than an hour from the M4 Severn Bridge and Cardiff.
For decades Buckland Hall has been used for all sorts of events where participants and guests enjoy the manor house, grounds and superb food all together under one roof. The extensive mansion facilities include a range of conference, activity and social rooms to suit all needs. These rooms are exceptionally large with windows looking out over the valley and are equally perfect for meetings, workshops and activity sessions. The Brecon Hall with its two massive log fires is the hub of the building and can be used as a wonderful social space or for conference and training sessions for up to 180 people or for receptions and parties for up to 250 people.
To relax, there is the Monmouth Library with its fabulous carved fireplace and fitted oak bookcases. Teas and coffees are permanently and freely available here and a TV/DVD can be set up, if desired. There is also a snooker room with a full-size Burrough & Watts table. A bar is available according to your request.
With 60 acres of gardens, parkland and miles of country walks along the River Usk, you'll find plenty of space in which to roam and unwind. Some of the specimen trees in the arboretum are more than 400 years old. The ornamental lake with its graceful swans is a particular haven of tranquility.
The history of Buckland Hall
The privately-owned manor house has character in spades. It is built on the site of a much older mansion – which explains why it was re-built after a fire in 1894 in Tudor-Elizabethan style with gables, mullioned windows, huge fireplaces and a spectacular grand hallway and staircase.
Buckland has literary connections too – the woods surrounding Buckland are said to have been JRR Tolkien’s inspiration for the Buckland Forest of Frodo Baggins in Lord Of The Rings.
