Retreats, Training & Courses
Buckland Hall is ideal for retreats involving personal development and transformation. It is also well used for training events and team building. With exclusive occupancy you have the potential to create your own mood and atmosphere. Buckland Hall stands within its own estate and there is no one to disturb your programme and very little that you could possibly do to disturb others. Groups can use the Brecon hall as their main social area or as a meeting or activity space. You can be set up the other activity rooms just as you need them. Some are particularly suited to body work or for presentations or voice work. Buckland Hall is especially suitable for courses and programmes offering training and treatments in complimentary medicine and holistic well-being.

Children are welcome and are under your care and supervision. You won't have any work to do. We'll handle all the catering and cleaning, but, as much as possible, we keep out of your social and activity areas so that you feel totally at ease. We can sleep up to 68 guests in beds, but we can provide extra mattresses and bedding, if needed. You'll enjoy walks and activities in the estate or go for trips and excursions to experience the sights and adventure of the Brecon Beacons.

I suppose there are limits, but not nearly as many as you'll find with other venues.
We are licensed for weddings and civil partnerships. There are four rooms to choose from, and also the covered veranda overlooking the gardens. The largest room is the Main Hall which can be set up for up to 150 people. It looks stunning with the opulent staircase, large fireplaces and views over the Usk valley. You can decorate it with flowers, candles, cloth, banners, whatever makes it special and beautiful for you. One of the most attractive aspects of a celebration at Buckland Hall is having everything under one roof e.g. ceremony, reception, banquet, party and accommodation. At the end of a night of conversation and revelry, you and your guests just have to climb the stairs. And, you get to enjoy the Bridal Suite with its four-poster bed and huge whirlpool bath.
