Retreat Centre from distanceBuckland Hall is set in the spectacular countryside of the Brecon Beacons National Park, surrounded by mountains with vistas along the Usk Valley. It is a sublime location for a residential venue. It is practically sorcery, that such seclusion and pastoral beauty is so accessible. We are only 3 hours from central London by road or rail, 2 hours from Birmingham and 1 hour from Cardiff.

The pleasure of food is crucial to every event and our chefs try to seduce you with a gastronomic delight. In keeping with our health-conscious ethos, we provide a wholly vegetarian menu which is guaranteed to be mouth-watering for everyone, even those less accustomed to vegetarian cuisine. We aim to use as much local and organic produce as we can. Our own mountain spring provides all the water for the building.
