Located in the south of the Brecon Beacons. The centre can be found among rolling hills, overlooking the Pontsticill Reservoir, providing a scenic location for the centre’s base and accommodation.
The Centre is situated in the Brecon Beacons National Park, a great base for walking and activity holidays. If your group would like to take part in some organised activities, we can offer gorge walking, paddle boarding, climbing, caving, kayaking and canoeing, archery, bushcraft and many more.
Dolygaer is well suited to a range of groups – family weekends, friends activity trips, school and youth groups, as well as corporate team building events.
The Cottage itself is tucked away in a very remote part of the Pontsticill reservoir. It’s been completely refurbished and benefits from internet and television. There’s a bright and airy master bedroom with double bed and a further two double rooms with wardrobe. The double rooms feature comfortable beds that can easily be split into two singles or one double making them suitable for all groups. The open plan kitchen is well stocked with all the essentials including a fridge/freezer, hob, oven, and microwave so you can make yourself at home from the moment you arrive. There is a bathroom with double shower & hand basin with a separate toilet & hand basin as well, and the comfortable living room has seating for six with views over to the reservoir. The Cottage also offers a boot room and a patio area so guests can sit out and enjoy the beautiful views.
The refurbished Chalet has 6 separate en suite rooms. One room can sleep up to 6 people (a double/2 singles and 4 pull down bunk beds), the other 5 rooms can sleep up to 4 people (a double/2 singles and 2 pull down bunk beds). All the en suite bathrooms have a shower, toilet and wash basin. Two of the rooms are DDA compliant with wet room bathroom facilities. The communal kitchen/living area has a fully functional kitchen with a dining table and 8 chairs, and living area with 2 sofas and a TV for DVDs.
The Lodge is the biggest of the 3 accommodations with 12 bedrooms. 10 bedrooms have 2 bunk beds in each and sleep up to 4 people, the other 2 bedrooms sleep 2 (1 bunk bed) and are en suite (toilet, wash basin and shower). The rooms are split upstairs into 2 sides, red and blue, with 5 larger rooms and an en suite room on either side. Each side has toilets and wash basins. The showers are in a separate building approximately 10 metres away from the Lodge, and are split into female/male, plus a single disabled room.
Downstairs in the Lodge is a very spacious lounge/games area with low comfy seating, a giant connect 4, fuse ball and a variety of board games. There is also a projector which can be used for presentations and watching DVDs. Adjacent is a big dining area and the kitchen, manned by our chef. There is a vending machine, kettle and fridge which can be accessed and used 24/7 when staying in the lodge.
