Types of Events & Activities at Buckland Hall
Conferences & Conventions
We serve all meals “home-style”. It’s an efficient
and flexible system which means that every one of your delegates can
sit down for lunch or dinner simultaneously. Teas & coffees are permanently
available to you. A bar can be open to your delegates at times you determine.
Buckland Hall is easily accessible and there is ample free parking
on site. It is particularly well situated for events serving the whole
Retreats, Training & Courses
Groups can use the Grand Lounge as their main social area or as a meeting
or activity space. There are six other activity rooms which can be set
up just as you need them. Some are particularly suited to body work or
for presentations or voice work.
All meals are wholly vegetarian
and we are happy to plan the menu to suit your specific needs. We aim
to use as much local and organic produce as practical.
Lunches and dinners are served to the table “home style” which enhances
the convivial atmosphere. There is a permanent tea station offering teas, coffees
(or not, if you want) as well as a range of herbal teas. Also, fresh water from
our own spring is freely available at all times – in fact, you will notice
the difference as you bathe in it.
There are magical places within the gardens and we encourage our clients and guests to take advantage of these areas for activities, ceremonies as well as fun and games.
Buckland Hall is the only retreat centre with a Four-star
grading – and
it’s well deserved as the bedrooms are excellently appointed with pleasant
and simple décor. All have en-suite bathrooms. There are five family
rooms and these have an extra toilet along with the bathroom – so even
with four delegates, there is no panic in the morning. There are a total of
but we can provide for additional residents, if needed.
We draw our clientele from all parts of UK and
often from abroad and there are good road and rail links particularly via

Health, Well-being & Holism
You can exactly specify the menu
which could involve anything from 100% raw to juice fasting. Everything
is specified by you and we ensure that it is all
provided with seamless efficiency, but in a way that does not intrude on
your feeling that Buckland is your space.
Weddings and Celebrations
We are licensed for weddings and
civil partnerships. There are four rooms to choose from. The largest is the
Grand Lounge which can be set up for up to
200 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.
The Grand Lounge can also sit up to 150 people
for sit-down banquets and our lovely oak-panelled dining room can sit 90.
All catering at Buckland
wholly vegetarian and we aim to use as much local an organic produce as
practical. We will happily discuss and plan the menus for your entire
stay with us.
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.
Family & Community
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 main 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. Even if it rains,
the mansion is so large that no one minds.
