Once you have arrived at your accommodation early this afternoon, unpacked and settled in, it is time to head to the stables for a short ability assessment followed by a ride out with a qualified guide. Tonight you will head for either a local award winning Bed & Breakfast, or a country house hotel with pool and spa. If you chose to spend your break at the country house hotel then you may choose to enjoy a home grown meal! The owners of the hotel have a nearby family farm where they keep cattle, poultry and much more. Alternatively there is a great pub only minutes drive away with a tempting menu and a choise of local ales.
After a hearty breakfast this morning you can make the short drive to the stables in just ten minutes. Today you will be riding through the Brecon Beacons soaking in as much of the beautiful Welsh scenery as the sunlight will allow. After which, it is time to head back to your stunning and historic Georgian hotel (or cosy B&B), in perfect time to enjoy a quick soak before heading out for dinner. Tomorrow you will be parting ways with this fantastic corner of the world so make the most of the tranquil calm of this region.
Today you can enjoy a final morning’s hack before it is time to begin your journey home. If you stayed at the hotel then we suggest that you try and visit the wood panelled library, terrace, garden and organic spa before you are due to part and if you are up early maybe a last dip in the pool.
