With the coronavirus pandemic making it impossible for most children’s sporting events and activities to continue, our thoughts are with the children and young people who may be more isolated and become more vulnerable during this time of isolation.

Here are some places that anyone can turn to for help:

The Hampshire Mountain Centre

A unique self-catered experience for groups who want to escape the hustle and bustle of modern day life

Hampshire Mountain Centre

About us

Located in the beautiful Brecon Beacons with views over to Pen y Fan, South Wales highest mountain, the mountain centre is a converted 19th century traditional Welsh farmhouse that can accommodate large and smaller groups in cottage dormitory style rooms. Facilities include fully equipped kitchens and drying rooms and a communal lounge with log burner.

Taking full advantage of our location, we are licensed and approved to deliver a full range of real, challenging activities, such as mountain walking, gorge scrambling and expeditions.
