4 Nights Yoga & Hiking Holiday in Brecon Beacons

Join us on our 4 night hiking yoga holiday in the Brecon Beacons, Wales. You will stay active with two guided hikes, exploring the stunning countryside of Brecon Beacons National Park. Your days will begin and end with yoga and in between hikes you can relax at the beautiful venue.

We are excited to announce that we are back in Wales for our 4 night mid-week hiking and yoga retreat in the Brecon Beacons from Monday to Friday. Stay in a family-owned multi-property estate that dates back to 1176. It was originally a farm serving the local monastery. Since then, stunning renovations have created a beautiful retreat space.

Why not stay in one of the main barns? Or maybe, try out a quirky converted wheat silo, perfect for two people. Either way, you will enjoy lots of space and room options.

Of course, get your hiking boots ready to enjoy a half-day guided hike with qualified guides on two of the full days. On the third day, you are free to do as you please. Within the local area, there are activities such as horse riding, canoeing, paddleboarding, more hiking, or visiting the delightful Hay on Wye for the afternoon, which is within walking distance. We can help put you in touch with the organisers of these activities before the retreat.

Want to fully relax? Bathe in the sun on the beautiful grounds or enjoy a massage from our talented team. You will truly feel rested and restored.

On our 4-night yoga hiking holiday in the Brecon Beacons, you will have up to 3.5 hours of yoga a day, delicious vegan food from one of our fabulous chefs, and gorgeous accommodation, making you feel cared for throughout.

We will run our yoga holiday in Wales all throughout 2024 and 2025, and also offer 3 night retreats in the Brecon Beacons here. Check out more about the Brecon Beacons National Park here.

Accommodation in Brecon Beacons

Located close to the literacy town of Hay-On-Wye, the property was once part of the farm serving a Cistercian monastery founded in 1176. Steeped in history the individual barns and buildings have been lovingly restored and updated to create a stunning home from home space.

Beautiful gardens create a multitude of private oases to relax in spread across the 4 individual buildings, each with their very own unique style and character, that we inhabit during our stay.

We have a choice of 6 single rooms with double beds and an ensuite bathroom, 3 single rooms with double beds with shared bathroom with 1 other room, a twin room with its own bathroom and a twin room with a shared bathroom with one other room. The Wheat Silo is a quirky accommodation for two people sharing a double bed and it has its own kitchen, bathroom and living space and stunning views of the Brecon Beacons.

The yoga studio is a beautiful, long barn conversion full of natural light and double doors that open up into the inner courtyard and the valleys beyond.

By Train

The venue is situated right next to Hay-on-Wye in England and on the edge of the Brecon Beacons National Park. The nearest train station is Hereford and then it is a 35-minute taxi ride which costs around £45 for a car. Arrange your train to arrive at Hereford for around 3.30pm and to depart after 11am in the morning.  Closer to the time of the retreat we will put you in touch with other guests to arrange a taxi share through our WhatsApp group.

 

By Car

We will give you directions in the welcome pack once you book your place.

The nearest train station is Hereford which is 35 minutes drive away. You can find out about travel if you go to the 'how to get there' section.
Hikes typically commence around 11:00 AM and conclude by 4:00 PM, subject to the overall fitness level of the group. One hike is from the venue and is a circular route with views, rivers, waterfalls and the second one is an intermediate level hike that requires a car share to get to the start point. If you are a novice hiker, we recommend acclimating yourself to hiking and building your endurance before joining us.
A big fat yes! Hiking boots are essential and not brand new ones...wear them first before embarking on a long hike. Bring a backpack to carry wet weather gear, a jacket and trousers and have a few different length layers on so you can cool down and warm up quickly.
There are a few hairdryers but we recommend bringing one with you if you use one frequently
We provide yoga mats, blocks and eye bags, if you need anything else please bring it with you.
Check in on the day of arrival is 4pm, please note that if you arrive before this you will not be allowed into the venue. Checkout on departure day is 10am, once again you will need to leave the venue promptly to allow the team to prepare and clean for the next guests.

Sustainability

We are working towards reducing our carbon footprint, and here are some ways we, as a company, are doing this. 

We are a 88% vegan company, 10% vegetarian and 2% fish or meat (only when staying in boutique hotels that offer these options). This makes up a huge percentage of carbon emissions that we avoid so easily because our food is still delicious, balanced and even more creative. So, thanks to you all for enjoying our healthy (mostly) plant-based meals. 

The difference: Most travel companies struggle to reduce their travellers’ meat and dairy consumption, which accounts for a large portion of their carbon emissions.

We stay primarily in one location for the duration of the retreat. We have started staying in a few locations on our long haul, but it is limited to 2 or 3 locations over an 8 – 10 night period. Staying in one place means low carbon emissions because we aren’t burning fuel to get around.

The difference: Other adventure travel companies move around every two days, using alot of petrol in vehicles for sometimes only 1 or 2 people. 

Our activities are low-impact—yoga, hiking, surfing, skiing/boarding, whitewater rafting, SUP, and kayaking are all very low-carbon activities, in fact, zero-carbon (except skiing/snowboarding due to the ski lifts, which is also low). These activities are included in the price we measure. The carbon may increase with travel to and from these activities in vehicles. 

The difference: Other travel companies can include high-carbon activities in the price, such as jet skiing, quad biking, and jeep driving, which increases their carbon footprint.

We run more than half of our retreats and holidays in the UK; these are very low-carbon holidays. 

We currently don’t measure our guests’ travel as part of our carbon output because our guests don’t only come from the UK, so it is hard for us to predict this. We also don’t include travel in the holiday price, which is not part of our calculations. We know that we provide these holidays, so we are looking to include this carbon measurement in the future so we are investigating how we can reduce this.

The carbon measurements at the top of the page with the icons are per person for the whole retreat. 

Ultra-low-carbon holidays

These holidays are below 200 kg per person, and our UK retreats are below 100 or even 70 kg, so these are great adventures for low carbon breaks.

Ski holidays are actually low in carbon! 

In France, many ski resorts are turning to green energy to power the lifts. If you eat low in meat and dairy while you’re there and hire your ski equipment, this makes your trip as low-carbon as possible. 

How can you help? 

There are ways that you can help reduce your carbon when coming on our retreats and holidays:

Travel by train, try slow travel across Europe and the UK.
If travelling abroad to Europe or further afield, choose carbon capture schemes, check out Ecologi. Offsetting is not the best thing to do these days, but try carbon capture where you pay for carbon to be absorbed into the environment.
Car share UK – we recommend when guests travel by train to arrive and depart at the same time to taxi share – which helps keep costs and carbon emissions down. Why not consider car share, too? Most guests who drive come alone or with a friend; we have WhatsApp groups that, if you like, you can see who is driving from your area and enjoy getting to know each other on the way to the retreats, and save on your carbon emissions at the same time!

We are by no means saints when it comes to producing carbon, as a travel company we know this is very difficult to reduce. We are working to reduce our carbon output each year by measuring it and then creating plans to reduce it. We are reviewing all our venues and asking them how they can improve their carbon reduction as we don’t own any of our venues but we would like to work with them to help in any way we can. We want to be transparent with this, so please get in touch for more information. As we change things, we will update the website.

Beautiful Brecon Beacons

Join us in Wales, in the county of Breconshire where we hold yoga retreats in two different venues. They are both nestled into the Brecon Beacons National Park, so that you can enjoy an energising and revitalising active yoga retreat surrounded by breath-taking scenery.

If you love to be in the Welsh countryside, surrounded by rolling hills, rivers, streams, nature and peace and quiet this is the right yoga retreat for you. With the closest town being Hay-On-Wye, you are in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park. About 3 1/2 hrs from London or 1 1/2 hrs from Bristol, take time out of your busy schedule to really relax and restore body and mind in this healing space.

You can choose to be as active or relaxed as you like on this yoga retreat, enjoy the free guided hike and then enjoy the grounds of the retreat to relax.

For those who want even more, Brecon Beacons activity holidays offer a variety of activities to choose from, like canoeing down the River Wye, horse riding or wandering into Hay-On-Wye as it is only 10 minutes away and exploring the infamous book shops and cafes.

About the yoga

On our mid-week hiking yoga retreat in the Brecon Beacons, the classes are suitable for all abilities. From beginners to intermediate and advanced levels, everyone is welcome. Furthermore, our inspiring and experienced teachers are well-practised at adapting the class to everyone’s level.

The yoga teacher will create a more dynamic class in the morning to get you ready for the day’s hike and adventures.  Then, the evening class will be slightly longer to enable deep relaxation with yoga Nidra.

Highlights

  • Traditional manor house venue with lots of space

  • Experience the Brecon Beacons in high summer

  • Two guided hikes with experienced guides

  • Being in nature, beautiful countryside and views

  • Feel restored after 4 nights at this gorgeous venue
