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.

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. Because you can opt for 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 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 68 bed-spaces, but we can provide for additional residents, if needed.

Outdoor activities & Team building
All of the benefits and characteristics of Buckland Hall described above also apply to events which feature outdoor activities for training, courses or team building. Many activities can be carried out within the estate. The Brecon Beacons is renowned for its range of more adventurous opportunities and we are only minutes from mountain hiking, abseiling, canoeing, 4x4 tracks, pot-holing etc. If you want, we can put you in contact with specialists in the area.

Health, Well-being & Holism
For all the same reasons that Buckland Hall works so well for Retreats (see above), it is especially suitable for courses and programmes offering training and treatments in complimentary medicine and holistic well-being. You have complete control of the environment and what your clients have access to at any time. There need be no distractions or temptations. Our staff are expert and sensitive and provide an exceptionally supportive mood for guests undergoing physical or emotional therapy.

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.
There are spaces for your guests to relax, to have classes, do bodywork or yoga and also four rooms that can be set up as individual treatment spaces. Your guests will particularly appreciate the spring water for drinking and bathing, the absolute peace and tranquillity of the mansion and the healing power of the estate.

Weddings and Celebrations
Whatever the occasion – weddings, birthdays, anniversaries - Buckland Hall offers a unique opportunity. Imagine having you own beautiful country mansion and estate in which you can create your dream wedding or special celebration. That’s the way Buckland Hall works. You have Exclusive Occupancy – no other guests or activities on the premises – it’s just you and your guests. Think of the freedom that offers. And, we suggest you exploit it! Be imaginative, choose a theme, incorporate your own special ideas - we’ll do whatever we can to make them work for you. 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. 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.

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 Get-togethers
Perhaps, you are looking to hold a family or community get-together or reunion, but not necessarily with all the splendour and pizzazz of a wedding or other celebration. Buckland Hall is perfect for you. Gather everyone under one roof and just relax, have fun or hold your own programme as you like. You won’t disturb anyone and no one will disturb you. 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 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.
Mansion Facilities

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.
