Grange Pony Trekking Centre: Take a walk on Twmpa mountain

General

  • Secluded site at a riding centre in the Brecon Beacons National Park
  • On the Cambrian Way a mile and a half from Offa's Dyke Path
  • Breakfasts, packed lunches and evening meals available on site

Young or not so young, experienced horse wrangler or first time in the saddle – all are welcome at family-run Grange Pony Trekking Centre, in rural Monmouthshire. A friendly bunch of Welsh cobs and ponies reside here, waiting to take guests out into the northern stretches of the Brecon Beacons National Park in the company of expert instructors.

Actually (whisper it…) not that fussed by horses? You’re equally welcome too, as this is a gorgeous base for any sort of peaceful break – a stream flows past the site, and the surrounding hills and mountains provide a scenic backdrop for your breakfasts and barbecues. The local wildlife agrees that it’s a fab place to hang out too, so you’ll most likely spot birds and beasts going about their business.

Once you've viewed it from afar, there are plenty of ways to get out for a closer look at the scenery. A hike perhaps? The site is on the Cambrian Way, a mile and a half from the Offa’s Dyke Path and has its own access to Hatterrall Hill. It’s also next to the path that climbs up Chwarel y Fan, and is a quarter of a mile from National Cycle Route 42. There’s secure storage for bikes, and the folk on site are happy to dry boots and sort laundry if you get wet and mucky as you roam.

Abergavenny’s about half an hour away for foodie foraging, but if you're too whacked after your day's activities to contemplate cooking, the folk on site can sort you with three-course evening meals, plus cooked breakfasts and packed lunches to get you set up for a day out.

Finally, if you're here near Hay to go to the Hay Festival, the friendly Grange Pony owners can give you a lift there.

  • Liked: 

    The natural setting of the tent field - lovely brook through the bottom to paddle in! Very friendly staff and good value for a tent pitch on a bank holiday weekend.

    Disliked: 

    There were some discarded cat beds in the toilet block and the loos often ran out of toilet paper.

From the manager...

Thank you Victoria for your review. Sorry you were unhappy with the cats beds in the toilet block. It is there home and there are 8 of them some people do like to see them all snugged in them for the nights sleep. The loos are checked twice a day and on bank hoilday it is a job when there are so many people coming and going to keep up with the use of toilet paper. It is very good of you to bring it to our attention. The shower is also cleaned after every use. Glad you had a lovely weekend and enjoyed yourselves and it was nice to meet you and Looking forward to seeing you next time.

Local attractions

If you’ve still got some energy once you’ve hiked, biked and trotted around the local area, perhaps you’d like to take to the waters of Llangorse Lake (45 minutes’ drive) for sailing, windsurfing and other aquatic activities.

And of course you can’t come to this part of the world without taking in a castle or two… stick to the Welsh side of the border to ramble around the ruins of Grosmont Castle or Crickhowell Castle, or skip over Offa's Dyke into England to Longtown Castle. Whichever you pick, you’re looking at a drive of around 40 minutes or so.

Dipping a toe into urban life shouldn’t involve too much of a wrench from your rural surrounds: Abergavenny (half an hour) is packed with independent shops to poke about in (with a particularly fine line in local foodie treats) and Hay-on-Wye (25 minutes) is a must-do for anyone who loves a good bookshop browse.

Must see

  • Blaenavon Ironworks (22.2 kilometres)
  • Blaenavon World Heritage Centre & Tourist Information Centre (22.7 kilometres)
  • Big Pit: National Coal Museum (22.8 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Cwmmau Farmhouse (19.7 kilometres)
  • The Weir (21.6 kilometres)
