Where we are

Located in the south of the Brecon Beacons, Parkwood Outdoors Dolygaer is a short 15 minute drive north of Merthyr Tydfil and only 30 minutes from the picturesque tourist town of Brecon. 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 surrounded by vast scenery allowing you to be completely submerged in the outdoors for the duration of your stay. The centre is approximately a 45 minute drive from the M4 at Cardiff and an hour from the M50.
The nearest rail station is at Merthyr Tydfil which would require additional transport to get to Dolygaer.
