Buckland Hall, Brecon Beacons

the estate & gardens

Step outside, the gardens are beautiful

One thing you’ll notice as soon as you step out of the car at Buckland Hall is how peaceful it is here. Step a little further and you’ll discover a lawn which sweeps down towards the River Usk which runs through a beautiful meadow.

Around the mansion you’ll find a bank of rhododendrons (spectacular in May) and a woodland walk and arboretum containing rare and unusual trees. We’ve got a ‘grandfather’ beech, Spanish chestnut, monkey puzzle tree and a glade where red cedars form a canopy large enough for 50 people to attend an outdoor wedding ceremony.

We’ve also got an ornamental lake with swans, ducks, coots and more wildlife.

Fun in the grounds – and local walks

Because the grounds are so extensive – we’ve got 62 acres for you to enjoy – there’s plenty of space for you to arrange outdoor activities, games, challenges and entertainment.

Don’t forget your guests can wander further afield around the estate – we have several designated walks.

  • The River Walk takes you to the nearby village of Talybont-on-Usk along the river bank.
  • The circular Woodland Walk takes you around Buckland Hill and the common at nearby Bwlch.
  • The Valley Walk takes you west past Tor-y-Foel with lovely views over the Usk towards the village of Llangynidr.
