Perfect location for a challenge!
Brilliant location for walking we have direct access to the Black Mountains from our farm.
Not only that, we are also in a super location for canoeing, with the River Wye only three miles away.
However riding (our main business) is what we specialize in! We offer escorted rides for full day or half day on the Black Mountains, which are suitable for all abilities from complete beginners to experienced riders.
Or if you prefer bike saddles, Hay on Wye offers bicycle hire, and also makes a great day out itself, with its many bookshops, antique shops, cafes and pubs.

…you can be sure of a fabulous experience at Cadarn…
Whenever we talk about Cadarn Bunkhouse, we talk about two things. We mention the glorious countryside and the riding stables. I suppose both go hand in hand as well. On the one hand, the riding would not be as popular as it is if it weren’t taking place from this secluded wooded farm near the Black Mountains and the Wye Valley. And on the other, there are few better ways to experience the landscape than mounted. There’s no other activity that matches the mix of athleticism and peace that riding can bring. That’s why the bunkhouse is hugely popular with horse riders, in fact my wife swears she came here on a riding club trip from university – that would have been more than 20 years ago.
With that much experience in accommodation and equine holidays, you can be sure of a fabulous experience at Cadarn.
The bunkhouse is very traditional. It sleeps up to 48 in The Old Stables and The Tack Barn. Rest assured they’ve cleared out all the hay and saddles and what have you. Downstairs is kitchen/dining room with stone walls and beams above. The lounge features deep soft leather chairs and sofas that you’ll not want to get up from.
Hay or Brecon? Literature or Jazz? Radio 4 or Radio 3?

Cardarn Bunkhouse is a great base for high mountains and high-brow.
Striding, pedalling, sailing or riding can be a contemplative set of pastimes. We, the outdoors-y type are also often thinkers, dreamers, creators. With this in our well-developed mind why not consider Cardarn Bunkhouse?
