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

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.
