Things to do in the area
Mid Wales Golf Breaks at Pwllgwilym
Golf is a great way to exercise and socialise with friends new and old but in Mid Wales it’s also a way to take in the stunning countryside surrounded by the Brecon Beacons National Park, the Cambrian Mountains, wildlife and Flora and Fauna ! 18 hole Builth Wells Golf Club, just 2 miles from Pwllgwilym presents a fair challenge to golfers of all levels. It is attractively laid out in splendid surroundings and is a comfortable walk. The variety in the holes means that players at the end of their round will find that they have used most of the clubs in their bag at some time but still room in the tank to sample some local ales in the club house thereafter.
Our Golf Breaks include comfortable 4 star B & B, a choice of three local golf courses (Llandrindod Wells & Cradoc are also nearby) with transport in our luxury mini bus if required. And because we have cottages on site too we can cater for small and large parties (up to 12 people).
We have a special introductory rate for first time bookings this spring;
1 night mid-week break in our 4 star B&B and two rounds of golf at just £69.95pp* or a 2 night mid-week break in our B&B with 2 rounds of golf at just £99.95pp*
* Minimum booking of 2 people
